    Switch from WBFS to NTFS

    Hello, I'm thinking about switching my 500GB HDD from WBFS to NTFS, but I have a few questions before I decide.

    1.) Are there any issues loading from NTFS drives using USB Loader GX or WiiFlow?
    2.) Where will my games be ripped to on the HDD/Where do I have to place my games? (e.g fat:/GAMES/)
    3.) What are the biggest issues with using an NTFS formatted drive other than being unable to launch homebew?

    I want to make sure about these things before I switch, because it will take me awhile to re-rip all my games.

    Thank you very much for your time.
