    My mate has about 50 games and i have around 15, i wanted to copy all his games to my hdd.
    Is there an easy way to do this rather than to extract every game and then put it on?
    I know there is a clone feature, but wouldnt that erase all the 15 games i have?
    cheers.

    i wouldnt mind doing that but it would involve extracting 15 games and then putting them on again.
    i was thinking there may be an easier way....

    with wbfs manager 3.0.1, you can hook up both drive and use the drive to drive feature and transfer the desired games

    Or you can use wbfs intelligent gui v6. Thats what I use as its much faster since it does direct drive copy of games from one drive to another. Thats what I use.

    I can assure you it works just peachy. I did a huge (247 games) transfer last night, and everything went off without a hitch. You need to keep in mind, the thread for that is old, and so are the problems.

    I remember transferring games from 1 WBFS HD to another took about 17 hours or so... has been 340 games IIRC.

    Was painful.
