    Transfer from my USB (WBFS) Drive to PC or another WBFS Drive

    So I have my WD Elements drive and I want to either back those up to my PC or back them up to a larger WD external drive (WBFS of course)...

    is this possible?

    Do I just use the WBFS Manager?

    TIA

    Wbfs manager has the clone drive option in it and there are some other good wbfs apps out there as well.

    That is all I have ever used, but I hear ppl (not actually hear becuse ii's all text, more like read) ppl talk about using other programs. Just can't remember what any of them are.
    The biggest issue for most ppl doing the process, Making sure they are using usb 2.0 on both devices, trying to do too much multitasking on their Pc when doing the transfer.

    so as long as both hard drives are USB 2.0 it shuold be good to go on WBFS correct?

    It will make the process faster anyway, it takes a while to accomplish this and even longer without usb 2.0

    I use the wii game manager. I leave the hard drive in ntsf format and put apps, wbfs, usb loader, wad folders on the hard drive. The wii game manager will then convert your iso to a .wbfs format and put them into the wbfs folder. Updated usb loaders, change settings to point to ntsf format. Then its as simple as copying regular pc files from one disc to another as your wii hard drive is still in ntsf format. And there is no 500 game cap like there is with wbfs manager. All of my 650+ games on a 1.5tb hd single partition
