    I have a drive with a couple of games in WBFS format. I used WiiFlow to delete a game that I didn´t want.
    Will I now have problems if I decide to install another game on the drive? Anyone?

    Nope, just install new game and carry on. No reason why you should have a problem as long as the game is in the correct format on the drive and readable by Wiiflow.

    Ok. Thanks.
    The reason I asked was because I´ve done a bit of reading, seeing that deleting old WBFS-games and installing new, could screw some games up. But the old threads didn´t give me a real answer. Maybe that was a long time ago?

    are they wbfs files on fat32 or WBFS files? if their the later than it's still an issue deleting and installing wbfs files over and over again there is a small chance your drive will get corrupt. that's why many use fat32 partitions now.

    Yeah. I run in WBFS, the reason for that is simply that I started off with that, and has not bothered to change it into FAT32. Maybe I should do that, just take the time to re-format & reinstall the games, for increased stability?
