    Wii File Managers Poll

    I will not attempt to write it myself because I'm biased... There's only one that stands out - or oot for you canuks

    I'm only going to request it include, in no particular order, Wii Backup Fusion, Wii Backup Manager, WBFS Manager, Wii Game Manager and QtWitGui. It's up to you to post the question "which do you use" or "Which do you think best" - they are close enough to not matter.

    I listed all I could think of. They are likely enough for the poll unless I missed something obvious.

    I believe that the file utility we use is at least as important as the USB loader we use. Without a great file utility, the USB loader would be snot lol.

    I only wish to add that I request to the person placing this poll to do it without bias. I also wish to thank everyone who spends time developing these utilities for us to use. I do not wish to belittle anyone and everyone who donates their time for the benefit of others is a hero and a winner even if there may be others who thought of a couple things they didn't.

    P.S. I've never posted a poll on here and I don't know how or I would have done it myself... that 'biased' crap was so I wouldn't be embarrassed. If no one takes me up on this I'll figure out how to do it myself

    I like Wii Backup Manager, because it transfers my WBFS files to and from my HDD
    much faster than WBFS Manager!

    First I suggest you drop the personal insults against me unless you want to taste my ban hammer. I'm going to be nice and give you one chance. I'll remove all insults and references to me. Just because you disagree with my use of better and more advanced game managers doesn't give you the right to insult a mod. I was never disrespectful or insulting to you so I would expect the same respect. Especially over something that is entirely personal opinion and happed forever ago now.

    QtWitGui is number one of course. It is so feature packed and can do so many things the others can't. For example can any of the other recover a WBFS partition? No? Well QtWitGui can! Don't talk crap about QtWitGui without using it either. It has a lot more uses than just WBFS...It's not WBFS Manager. It can convert games just the same and be used with FAT32 and NTFS also. The WBFS features are just highlighted because the others are a given seeing as what it can do and it supports more file types than some of the others like Wii Backup Manager. Wii Backup Fusion comes second because it once again has a lot more features than the other game managers and is easy to use. One of the most important features of both though...They both support all 3 major OS so none of this Windows only crap for us Linux and Mac users. I suggest you read up on WIT seeing as how both are essentially GUIs for it. And how is QtWitGui esoteric? Because you don't understand it and you feel I'm an elitist for using it?

    @ Dex
    The only one I dont like is wbfs manager.. as far as the rest goes it's really down to personal preference and what you like to use.. everyone has a different set up. Things may work different and vary from user to user, so determining what is best is just a matter of opinion. .. What works great for one, might be crap for another.. Kinda like cfg/uloader/gx/wiiflow... Preferences buddy...


    FYI
    You should also becareful with what you say.. no need to be offensive towards ANYONE especially a mod.. Quick way to get your IP banned..... SooOOoo lets keep that stuff down to a minimum if not non-existant level.. Thanks in advance. .

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    Having reviewed this thread, it appears that the originator requested a poll be created in order to: 1) promote his favorite; 2) insult members with different opinions; 3) attack alternative File Managers.

    Actions contradict the premises and intentions voiced in the first thread post. While no app is perfect, all the listed apps work and meet the needs of their users. This forum serves a global and diverse community; this is a foremost consideration of our supported apps, guides, and staff/helpful members.

    Baiting a poll in order to lure participants for insult is not acceptable. The originator is banned. Others, please feel free to share your opinions and experiences with us; the poll remains open for you.
