    Alright, I'm having a major issue with my partition and ncWBFStool. I managed to fix my broken partition and format it so that games will work on it again, but when I took all my games off the partition prior to formatting it, something went wrong, and a huge chunk of my games appear in gibberish when I click on "Add Games". Any attempt to add these games gives a "not enough space" error, and all attempts to use other managers has failed, as the manager either fails to find the partition, or the games don't appear when I point the manager to my backup folder.

    Thanks in advance.

    Use modmii to reset it up right(your hard drive)

    What would I do with that? The main issue is that no programs are reading the backed-up ISOs aside from ncWBFStool, and those display as gibberish that the program won't add to the partition.

    Those isos are probably dead to you... WBFS is not a stable file system and can often cause corruption of games (especially if you remove and add games all the time). You're better off removing all the games still on the drive and reformatting it to FAT32 imo. Nearly all USB loaders these days have full FAT32 support (and limited NTFS support)

    Never format your drives in WBFS.
    It's the most unstable file system out there.
    FAT32 is by far the easiest, and most stable of them.

    What's the best way to convert the ISOs back, then?

    Wii Backup Manager.... it'll convert ciso's, to ISO, wbfs, whatever you want it to be.
    (As long as these ISO's are not corrupt on your drive).....Backup Manager will detect
    if the ISO's etc, are bad

    I was indirectly saying you should use fat32. Modmii explains all the options you have and fat32 is obviously the best choice out there (for now anyways).
