    I have a nearly full 256GB WBFS drive for my Wii, and just to be safe, I want to back it up.

    Thing is, I don't want to format one of my other drives into WBFS and lose the other data they have on them, so I just want the extract the games as ISO or .wbfs or whatever files from the drive. Problem is, while all sorts of managers, such as WBFS manager, allow you to do that, they extract them with padding, even if they aren't padded on the WBFS drive. I know I can go in and one-by-one remove the padding... but that is a huge pain when you have a large drive. Is there any easy way to backup my USB drive either as a whole or preferably, as individual files without any extra padding being added back in? They would take up far far more than 256gb with the padding in place.
