    I believe on WBFS (this on the PC side of things) there's a "clone" option which involves HD to HD...

    Yes; depends on actual size of data and if you have USB2.0 on the PC. Can't say beyond that.

    No - load up WBFS Manager and copy all the games from your drive to your sisters drive

    Yes, I'm aware of that, but you can't just click it and off it goes.

    Source drive & destination drive have to be selected from within WBFS Manager first.

    Pedantic, but some really would just click and hope for the best.

    I guess you're point is it'd require common sense; I can see the validity of pointing it out in case someone took their "dumb pill" today.

    bdotcom:

    I'm sure you realize you're actively professing to whoring out your Wii collection and that is most likely crossing a line with regard to Wiihacks. Best leave things as they are... the folks don't take too kind an eye to a profession not only of general piracy, but to this level it's far worse.
