    Ya... I may actually format a drive to wbfs and then convert it just to try this thing. Looks awesome!

    Hi,
    Not sure if there is any support from wiihacks senior members or staff, or anyone even.
    I've been sent here by a member from another post.
    My hdd is wbfs format and i've been using WBFSmanager 4.0 for it seems an age to load games on.
    Now i'm not someone who likes a change unless something is wrong, but there is a lot of talk about being on fat32 and i think it's time.
    I must admit i've had no problems with any game on my usb hdd.
    When wbfs2fat starts up it comes up with my drives connected to laptop. My usb hdd is letter E but it say's permission denied and i can't do anything. Have also ran program as administrator to.
    Laptop OS windows7, also tried on windows vista.

    Hope someone can help me out.

    Hi Shift-Lock.
    It's been a while since i set it up.
    From what i can remember no. When i first set it up i was in two minds about fat32 or wbfs so i went for wbfs as, (with my lack of experience), i would be saving disc space.
    I used EASEUS partition manager to format and set as primary and active. And used WBFSmanager 4.0to load games. I think.
    But i'm pretty sure it's not password protected or locked.
    I may just format and reinstall games, may take a while though. unless tou have any other ideas.
    Thanks again.

    I've never used this program.. so I really have no input.. if you have no issues though why not leave it?

    Yeh good idea. Was thinking that myself.
    It's just all this talk of fat32.
    I'll leave it be,until there are problems.
    Thanks anyways

    While fat32 is preferred I don't see a point in all that work if everything is fine for now. Unless you just really want to do it.
