Hello Friends Of The internet. I am wondering what can I use to backup my games without using Wii backup manager.


I am doing this so in case my USB get corrupted again then I won’t have to worry about my games getting deleted and can just straight up copy them to my USB but I’m having an issue with copying super smash bros brawl.
It says the wbfs file is to big for this destination. Using regular old windows file system. I will use Wii backup manager as a last resort just would rather not download files from the internet.


Thanks in advance Fluvv

You are using maybe FAT32 - so,yes,the File is too big for the Destination.
It has some good Reasons to ALWAYS use the Wii Backup Manager for Game Tranfers...

If you like to do it with some more complicated Way(s),like splitting the File(s) by Hand for Example,please,of course,you can do it.:)

    In the EU we get 2 year warranty, but if we open a device the warranty gets void, so I'll just stick with getting a bigger micro sd card.

    I'm out of the loop with new hardware thingies, and that includes transfer speeds.

    I do know SD cards have some new standard, with extra pins, and they're freaky fast.

    Compared to when I was last keeping up to date, that is.

    What is this lag, it shouldn't be lag between when you press a button and the corresponding action on-screen, people make a ruckus for less than that

  • Veho @ Veho:
    What lag?

    It's the loading time.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Not a lag on button presses.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Portal 2 takes 10-17 seconds longer to load from an SD card than from the internal SSD storage.

  • Dark_Phoras @ Dark_Phoras:
    I just wanted to be clear that I had ruled out the lag on button presses. I have reasonable intelligence
