    WBFS Partition vs NTFS + wbfs file???

    As the title says i have created a WBFS partition on my HDD which works without problems. I have it partitioned as NTFS for the most part so i can store other stuff on it.
    What i would like to do is have one partition (NTFS) and have it work both on Wii and act as a normal external drive for other stuff.

    Now i have downloaded backup manager 0.5 and created a wbfs file and putting it on my NTFS partition within WBFS folder (/WBFS/<game>).

    The question is here will i run into problems with games that run of a NTFS partition as wbfs files? using CFG/GX/Wiiflow loader(s) (undecided which loader i like best yet)

    not with cfgv60 or wiiflow r254....gx doesnt have the support for ntfs

    its better and you are able to salvage the data if it corrupts..

    same loading speed ,easier to keep /move files....

    and you dont have to use .wbfs you can use .iso

    yeah i know i can use ISO files but i prefer wbfs as it just seems better and strips the garbage data and updates. If you know a utility that i can use to scrub a game to a smaller size and and still have it as ISO that would be just prefect for me.

    thanks was using backup manager 0.5beta and although it worked it was kida annoying not user friendly, this is way easier to use. Will have to test if the games work, tried one this morning from my ntfs partition with wiiflow 2.2 beta and it would not load yet with CFGv60 worked fine.
