    Unhappy Copying ISO from USB stick

    Hi, I had previously copied a game to my Flash Drive without scrubbing it, and accidentally deleted the file from my computer. I was wondering the best way to copy the file from my Flash Drive (WBFS) back to my computer.

    I tried the WBFS Manager, set Drive 1 to the Flash Drive, and Drive 2 to C:\
    It went through the whole copy process, but then the file didn't show up.

    I then instead tried selecting the ISO from my flash drive, clicked Transfer>ISO, and saved to my desktop. After it running through the whole process, I still do not see the file.

    What is a way I can get it back to my computer so I can scrub it: I can't make the ISO on my own computer because my PC can't read the disc to make the image.

    Thanks!

    Not just load flash in wbfs and click on game and pick extract iso?
    You may have done this already and extracted somewhere on your pc?

    Did you use WBFS manager to put the ISO on your flash drive initially? If so it is already scrubbed. WBFS manager scrubs the image in the transfer process. If not maybe it has something to do with WBFS Manager trying to extract a scrubbed image when it hasn't been scrubbed. Have you tried and of the other programs like Game Manager?

    Thanks alot! Yes it was put on there with WBFS, and I did not know the manager scrubbed it during transfer.

    Still, it would be nice to know of a program (for Win) to copy the ISO back off the Flash drive, so I can switch what's on it if need be...

    Is Game Manager a win prog I can use to transfer the game from the flash drive TO my NTFS?

    Thanks!

    Yeah Wii Game Manager is a Windows program for transferring games. There are a couple of others but I'm honesty losing touch with the Widows side of programs. Maybe someone else could mention some of the others and advantages.

    wii backup manager works too. A fat32 file may be easier for you to deal with too. The fat32 guide has links to wii game manager and wii backup manager in it. Maybe some more info you might find useful too.

    wbfs manager should have been able to extract the iso to your computer too, strange that it did not work.

    Thanks for the input, I thought it was odd it wouldn't work as well.

    For FAT32, No TY: My laptop was already on NTFS, and I really am NOT a fan of the whole having to splice FAT32 files over 4GB...
    I guess you can call that a FAT waste of time... no pun intended.

    Wii backup manager does that for you I understand your ntfs/fat32 laptop issue but, an iso is going to be 4.7 gb (I am pretty sure) whereas the fat32 file will be much smaller on most games.

    That is the first time I've heard that, as far as I knew, a file contains the same data, no matter the format. Have any examples of this, or is this guesswork?
