    Hi, does anyone know if there is a way to convert WBFS to NTFS without losing all my games? I use WBFS manager right now to play my games but I just heard that you can use NTFS and I'd like to switch as I could then use the drive for other storage when not plugged into the Wii.

    nout as simple as that mate, best option would be is to back up your games to your pc perhaps, format your oldd hdd and then transfer your stuff back

    NTFS is better but FAT32 is best! Do the right move

    I'm not sure how GX works since I used CFG usb loader, but I once changed the partition that contained all my games and CFG wouldn't read it at first. I had to change my config.txt file to point to the new partition.

    Under Game Load/Partition it sees my drive as NTFS1 (298.09GB). I think I'm missing an IOS which is weird cause all my games worked using WBFS.
