    Hello,

    I've got a problem, on my 500GB usb drive the fat32 partition somehow got corrupted. I can deal with that, but I think the partition table got messed up during the recovery and now my wbfs partition is not working.

    I reformatted the wbfs as wbfs again and checked the hex, I can still see my data and games but they are not readable with wbfs managers or with the wii. I tried a command line tool that runs in cygwin and followed instructions that I found for others that had a similar problem but all I could accomplish was seeing 500 game slots of garbled looking titles in wbfs manager.

    I can still see the data in a hex editor, so I'm sure there must be a way to recover it (I hope...)

    Thanks for any help you may be.

    J

    Is this the right forum for the question? I wasn't too sure.
