    Hi i currently have a 2 partition setup on my wii hdd, 1 wbfs and 1 fat32.

    Somehow a folder has been corrupted on my fat partiton, and windows will not let me delete it.

    It was an images folder, about 46meg now windows says its 56.5GIG!!! It is still named images but upon opening it is full of files and folders with corrupt filenames, like this for example... o?çg

    Yes, you can do it with Windows DM. Start it up and right click on the drive you want to format in the list at the top (make sure you select your FAT partition - verify it's the right size and drive letter - and not the WBFS partition), and select format (again, make sure it's the right volume and drive letter in the pop-up box) and go from there, obviously choosing FAT for the file system and whatever allocation unit size you want.

    The above assumes your FAT partition is not greater than 32GB.
