    If your data is that important then keep a backup. You didn't give enough details about your setup to tell if you can just add .wbfs or .iso files to your drive would work with your loader, but it might. Although a lot of wii homebrew is pretty good these days, it is still very possible that something happens and your entire filesystem is corrupt and you lose everything on the drive.

    Hi Dude, Buy another HDD 45 gb is only 10 ISO's Wii, You would be better off starting over with a new drive format Fat32 and use wbfs file type, to store your games as wbfs file type is much smaller. Not many Wii games are actually 4.7 Gigs.Lots of Buffering added to fill a standard 4.7 capacity disc. As Wii will only read full discs. If you only want to store ISO images, Go with NTFS format.

    All is easy When you Know How!
