    heya again! I finally got my hands on my external disk so i want to get things right [​IMG] alright, some people advised me not to put the disk in the wbsf format that it would ask to format the disk everytime i put it in pc, so, i am planning to put it in fat32 i guess ? well help me settle this, i have to format the disk right ? when i click format on it, can only choose ntfs default or exFat wich i supose is the fat32 ? Also do i have to change anything on the allocation unit size ?

    i got alredy latest version of wiibackup manager, just waiting to know what to do ^^"

    ( I feel rather dumb) [​IMG]

    use wiibackup manager, select your drive and then press "FORMAT"
    then wait, it'll go automatic

    if your pc asks to format it, you say "no" or "cancel". my pc doesn't ask

    Choose your loader and visit their site for a guide. FAT32/NTFS have a clear advantage over WBFS that you can defrag/dskchk etc natively in windows should you encounter problems. The files themselves will be stored in wbfs file format but can be read by wii backup manager and windows.
