    usb harddrive

    i bought a usb harddrive to hopefully play back ups, now it does not say in the guide but do you have to partion the or can i just format it using wbfs, if you do have to partion it is the fat32 partion for putting apps like a usb loader in or do you still have to use the sd card

    Yep that is what it would be for. I have a 500 gig hard drive, and I partioned 30 gigs for apps, and the rest in WBFS format.
