I've downloaded WIT and installed it.
I've read https://wit.wiimm.de/wwt/ but I do not understand the syntax to extract files from a WBFS file.
Unfortunately despite the full documentation there are no examples and I just get lots of errors when I run it.

For example, if I have a file C:\Temp\myfile.wbfs and I want to extract all the files from it to C:\Output.

Something like "wtt extract C:\Temp\myfile.wbfs --output C:\Output" (obvs that's not going to work.)

I'm not even sure if wtt extract is the right command as the documentation says "will extract Wii discs" which I don't want - I want to extract the file itself.

Can someone help please?

Just use Wii Backup Manager to convert it back to iso

You can try "wit copy" it can copy from ISO/WBFS to disk, disk to ISO/WBFS, ISO/WBFS to ISO/WBFS and is a simple "wit copy c:\source\game.wbfs c:\target" command.

Ignore, worked it out. I need wit, not wtt. The syntax is:

wit extract "C:\Temp\myfile.wbfs" C:\NewFolder

C:\NewFolder mustn't exist beforehand.

EDIT: Thanks for the replies! I'm so slow at typing you replied before me. :blush:
