    reclaim lost games off formatted wbfs drive

    is there any way to reclaim my games off a wbfs drive that was accidentally reformatted to wbfs (which wiped my games) while being plugged into cfg loader?

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    thank you

    regards blaylok

    That's about it!

    If you had fat32 or ntfs to begin with then you would be able to use pc tools to recover the lost files. I know this does you no good at this point, but you may consider a different format since it has been wiped out anyhow.

    You can try WITs recover command or QtWitGui if you would rather a GUI than a CLI. Your drive may still yet be salvageable.
