    do you know if ncWBFSTool can handle partitions >500GB? That was the problem with WBFS IGUI.

    I read the complete thread and saw nothing about partitions >500gb that did not work, maybe there was no testing on partitions larger than that, I saw where someone was recieving a 1tb drive but not reporting back yet . My own HD is a 500gb so I cant not test.

    At first ncWBFStool did not recognize my WBFS HDD, I went into Config and turned on Enhanced Drive Detection, and my WBFS drive was detected. And another thing, when I formatted a 8gb Sandisc USB memory stick with ncWBFStool, WBFS manager and Hermes WBFS Inteligent GUI did not recognize my WBFS USB memory stick.

    Hmm, trouble ahead with three available apps using modifications of WBFS code?

    I know that the WBFS Intelligent GUI uses Hermes modified WBFS code to add support for adding and extracting .ciso files. They also added an integrity check that WBFS Manager did not have in its core coding. The partition size issues were thought to be due to the integrity check. It wasn't just a 500GB limit, variable limits were reported as well. These problems were attributed to the integrity check refusing to continue upon seeing a bad HDD sector or something related.

    For good or bad, WBFS Manager does not use the integrity check and does not run code that supports .ciso files. Thanks for the info, Stomp.

    depends on the game, sometimes cios files can be a few hundred megs, vs the same game as a rip is over 4 GB
