    Wii backup manager I think does that. If you search there is another App as well, just can't think of the name right now.

    Hmm WBFS Manager 3.0? Mine doesn't have that option. I think WBFS Intelligent Might.

    Wii Backup Manager 0.3.5 does. You have to add the files from a directory then go to transfer and select ISO.

    Hi Krank,

    You want to check your WBFS Manager screen, please? The Extract ISO button should be in the function line right below the main left hand window. The extract ISO function has been there for several updates of WBFS Manager. Should be the third button from the left. Want to check your installation of the program and make sure it's there? Thanks.

    gen3sf - I wasn't trying to argue or anything like that and I hope you didn't take it that way. I don't use it often and couldn't remember it having that option. I checked and yes there is an extract ISO button but the only format it allows you to save it in is ISO. So when the original poster said they had WBFS files I assumed they meant .WBFS files on a NON WBFS drive. So I didn't think WBFS would be of use and suggested Wii backup or game manager because they deal with .wbfs files. I was just curious really.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    @Krank-I didn't take your comments as argumentative at all. You have been helping our members long enough to be known. I just want to make sure your WBFS Manager 3.0 install wasn't corrupt or something. It was puzzling when you reported that your copy did not have that ability that's why I wanted you to look.

    You are correct that WBFS Manager will only convert those .wbfs files from a WBFS-formatted drive to ISO format files on one's PC HDD. WBFS Manager is more limited than the other managers derived from the core code, but is a bit more reliable and internally compatible with the wbfs code and format. Some purported managers are just GUIs to the wbfs file.exe so it is indeed interesting to see managers and GUIs come and go and follow their development-enjoy.
