    I have two partitions on my 500GB HD one is a FAT32 partition and the other one is wbfs. My question is: Can I format my FAT32 with wbfs and merge the two partitions without loosing any of the games already instlled. TY.

    Unfortunately PC operating systems don't see WBFS as a filesystem so they only show unpartitioned/empty space in a WBFS format partition, so there's no way to 'merge' 2 WBFS partitions without someone making a plugin for partition software specifically for WBFS. (none exists as of yet)

    Well actually my WBFS partition doesn't show as unpartitioned/empty space..
    It shows as an unformatted partition in XPs LDM

    But to the original question, as others have said, no it's not possible at this time to merge the partitions [​IMG]


    Does USB Loader work with two WBFS partitions on the same HDD? If so, why not just format the other partition aswell and just use both?
