    Formatted my WBFS Drive!

    I accidentally formatted my WBFS drive when I plugged it into my laptop thanks to Windows 7's stupid "do you want to format" pop up. I immediately formatted it back into WBFS and then used a hex editor to populate the game regions, but it looks like it's corrupted.
    I've fixed another drive in the past that had crashed with the hex editor method, but that drive had never been formatted to NTFS. I think this one's a lost cause.
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    I've searched but couldn't find any guides on NTFS loading. I've found FAT32 guides, but it seems to me NTFS should be less of a hassle in the long run, whereas you don't have to split up larger files.

    That is why it is recommended to go with FAT32 loading, because someone with an absent mind will format a WBFS volume when not paying attention...

    whereas you don't have to split up larger files.
    and Wii Backup Manager will split the files automatically for you also, so where is the hassle?

    same thing as fat32 except ..you can use nand emulation hbc only works with fat32 , and you have to use nforwarder which can look for the loaders boot.dol on ntfs drive the loaders folder can be on ntfs partition

    green-Nforwarder58-WFBG.wad
    orange-Nforwarder58-WFBO.wad
    violet-Nforwarder58-WFBV.wad

    its better to use fat32 one partition for everything ...splitting files is easy if you use wii back up manager and you want to convert to .wbfs saves a lot of space
