    WBFS to NTFS

    Hey, i'm trying to transfer some wii games from a WBFS formatted HDD, to a NTFS formatted HDD. I searched around google for a bit and everyones like, use wii backupmanager and clone the drives, I tried this but it wouldnt work as the second drive isn't formatted as WBFS. Any ideas?

    Edit: I have Wii backup manager and WBFS manager 3.0

    LowKeeMC Did you introduce yourself as there are a bunch of links that will be sent to you and all the info you need is in that welcome page. However If you use wii game manager that will transfer from a WBFS formatted drive to ISO Image or wbfs file type.

    I didn't, I know i'm lame. I tend to just google for an answer and if I don't find it, ask someone.

    Atm i have 93 games going from wbfs formatted drive to the ntfs drive using the wii backup manager. I believe it made a wbfs folder on the ntfs drive first so I assume the games will just go in there and be useable when finished?

    Be very careful Lame, Google it, 93 Games watch your comments. Read the site rules or the executioner will haunt you. They will be usable if you have the drive setup correctly, with the apps and all.
    93 x £25 average is a lot of cash, you know where i'm coming from.

    It's okay, I have the games in cd form, i'm er, just doing a backup of a backup, for safety reasons. I havn't touched the other drive, I literally bought it from CEX today, it's got nothing on it, was formatted to NTFS already so I left it.

    Just double checking because it says it'll take 4 days 11 hours to transfer everything over, wouldn't wanna wait that long to find out it won't work.

    So yeah, got one hdd formatted to wbfs, doing a straight transfer to a ntfs formatted hdd using wii backup manager. Opened wii backup manager loaded up the wbfs drive with data on it as drive 1, loaded up the ntfs drive as drive 2 it asked if i'd like to make a wbfs folder as it's not wbfs formatted, I accepted. Selected all the date on drive 1, clicked transfer to drive 2.

    My understanding is, from looking up other sites, coz it has the wbfs folder on the ntfs drive the data will stay as a .wbfs file type and run fine from usbloader thingy I have installed.
