    Is it possible to store WBFS files on my FAT32 hard drive?

    Hi I've searched for this and can't find any answer, so here is my question!

    I have limited space on my PC HDD and was wondering if there is any way to keep WBFS files on it instead of ISOs as the size of an iso is just too large to keep all the games i want to keep backed up.

    Any ideas?

    cheers in advance,

    mike.

    You have to partition your hd.

    Just scrub them, a zip/rar file removes almost as much useless space as a wbfs file anyway.

    I use "Wii Game Manager 1.4.0.1" to convert iso games to wbfs. Original iso is 4,3GB and the wbfs game is 350MB. I store them in an external WD 750GB drive (1st partition is 200GB formated as FAT32). I use "Configurable USB Loader" to run games directly from USB HDD.

    Buy 100 blank Ritek DVDRs, £14/$20, gives you 475GB of data storage, backup the wbfs scrubbed game files to the DVDRs as data once you have them on your Wii USB HDD, this will give you 200-400 games worth of space saving on your hard disks.

    Think of it as a 500GB HDD for £14/$20 full of wii games, bargain!
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt

    The answer is YES - I do it myself.
    As stated above , use Wii Game Manager.
    I create a directory called wbfs (although it doesn't have to be) on my C: drive.
    Use Game manager to create the files there or copy them from USB disk
    Copy them to your USB HDD when you need them.

    I am unsure as why you need them on a PC if they are on a USB HDD, just as security ? If so, there are some pretty cheap USB HDD around.
