converting my wii HDD from a WBFS file system to a FAT32 file system (.wbfs files).

when formatting to FAT32 for the Wii, what is the optimal cluster size?

it's a 640GB portable WD elements HDD.....

should that value be different if i were to also run UNEEK or Triiforce from this drive as well....?

(sorry if this topic has been covered before somewhere in the forums...i couldn't fnd it....)

I have a FAT32 drive for Wii software and a WBFS partition for games. Should I still use 32k for the FAT32 partition or is it only if I use it for games? The FAT32 partition is only 32GB.

Thanks

Think as your drive consists of boxes. You can put things in these boxes.
You can put one thing in several boxes, but not several things in one.
The Clustersize determines how big one box will be.
If you have much large things, you should take bigger boxes.
If you have much small things, you should take smaller boxes or you would waste a lot of space.
If one think doesn't fit in one box it will put the rest into another one.
Take a clustersize which is about the average size the files you will save on the drive.
