    WBFS HDD partition

    Hello all so I have an external hardrive that was partitioned and made into a wbfs format but I would like to resize it and make it smaller is there a way to do this without having to format my drive?

    Do you really own 500 original discs that you backed up? That must of cost a fortune!

    You can use wbfs2fat.py - WBFS to FAT32 conversion. But to change a partition size or make it all one fat32 partition you would have to reformat the drive.

    Thank you. Also I don't want to argue or anything but isn't there a limit on how much you can copy on a fat32 format while with a ntfs drive it is unlimited file size?

    Thanks. Also out of curiosity the app playerkp420 sent me what's the hole point of it if I can just do it through my computer and select my partition size etc unless I am not understanding something? Also when you said a limit of 4gb I have Super Smash Bros Brawl DVD would I have to split the game in half or something?

    Wbfs2fat will convert the partition to fat without any data loss. If you just use your computer all data on the wbfs partition will be lost.

    The program that Red spoke of (wii backup manager) will automatically split the file for you.

    Thankyou very much for your help but now before I go ahead and convert it to fat32 I want to decrease my partition size will the app do that for me too?
