    Hard Drive Settings

    .I installed v2.2 of USB Loader GX and while everything seems to be fine I have a question about two of the "Hard Drive Settings" part of it.

    1. Game Split Size...I think the default is 4GB. It can be changed to 2GB or "No Split". My HD is WBFS. Should I change it to "No Split"? What would be the reasons to change it to any of the 3 shown?

    2. Install Partitions...The default is "Only Game Partition". It can be changed to "All Partitions" or "Remove Update". This is a bit confusing. Didn't v1.1 of USB Loader GX automatically remove updates while installing a game to the HD? Does v2,2 have to be set at "Remove Update" for this to happen? If so how are the "Only Game Partition" and "All Partitions" settings used?

    1. You are correct about "no split" for your wbfs formatted drive. A FAT formatted drive has a max file size of 2GB per file. A FAT32 drive has a max file size of 4GB.

    2. All Partitions would give you a 1:1 copy of the game. Only Game Partition essentially "scrubbs" the game for you (much smaller file size). Honestly not quite certain about the difference between Remove Update and Only Game Partition. Will do so more research and post back if I can find anything.

    Thanks. I knew about the 2GB and 4GB limits in FAT/FAT32. Unfortunately I didn't think about it since I am dealing with a WBFS formatted drive.

    Also, thank you for trying to find out about the difference between "Remove Update" and "Only Game Partition". I am hesitant to add any new games until I find that out.

    Just set it to Only Game Partition. I tested a few games awhile ago and and they came out just fine (size and playability)
