    ntfs and wbfs question

    I read (trust me) and I am thinking about ntfs (since I have vista). I know that CFG will play backed up wii images with both and I understand that wbfs formated drives has a limit ( I think 400 wii games or somewhere in that ball park) and I have a 1.5 TB dive.
    I just don't know (for certain since there are a lot of old posts out there) how much the NTFS drive can manage. I mean is there a limit to how many .wbfs files i can put on it?
    I don't have a need to fill up the drive since alot of wii games are...well not so great
    but just knowing the limit would be nice in case I partion for other stuff (movies or whatever)

    I trust this site and it's people since everyone has great answers and most are not egowarped making newbies feel like s#$t.

    I believe USB Loaders have a game limit of 500
    NTFS would be ideal, however it isn't that reliable with USB Loaders at the minute, also game can be read from a NTFS drive but USB Loaders can't copy
    to NTFS as yet.
    FAT32 Partition is a far better option than a WBFS Partition, for several reasons, so look at that option before wasting your drive putting a WBFS partition on it.

    that was fast! I thought (after reading that cfg was ok with this) it would be possable. 500 games is beyond me and stupid vista wont let me format to fat and since I already have the .wbfs files NTFS is my only route. I know that there is a program that will enable me to do format but I am wanting the easy way out. I live in a small town an everyone wants a piece of this. They are to DUH to teach. But you did answer my question about how many games a loader can take. I thank you.

    on vista

    open up the command prompt or "run" and type:

    format (your drive letter) : /FS:FAT32

    This is a great app for formatting any drive to FAT32 - >>> FAT32Formatter <<<
