    Sorry i know you will tell me to search but anyways...

    I i've got 2 partitions on my hard drive. WBFS/FAT32

    I realized that the WBFS is really big and FAT32 is too small and now i want to make my fat32 bigger...


    The thing is, i have lots of games on WBFS and lots of important files on FAT32....

    How do increase the size of my FAT32 without losing any of the data on both?

    You cannot resize a WBFS partition at this time.

    So the only way is copying games to computer then format the whole thing?

    although for mac/windows/linux I have resized many partitions in the past, I was under the impression that the WBFS partition could not be resized without destroying it due to it's RAW format...


    At any rate, your BEST option would be to backup Wii images off that drive to another one or your internal HD - reformat and then reload. I recommend using a WBFS manager that supports .ciso or .wbf extraction for this one specific task so the images take up the same amount on your normal windows/mac/linux drive as they do on your WBFS drive and don't come off as all 4.7GB image files. Their technically stored as .ciso/.wbf files on the WBFS drive anyway...
