    My external hard drive is formatted to wfbs 500gb and I want to cut that gb in half so I can have fat32 and wfbs. If I do this then will I lose any game file?

    i think so....because of those partition tools such as Norton PartitionMagic don't support the WBFS partition.......

    What Jordan_ch said...WBFS partitions cannot be resized without deleting everything. Standard tools will treat the WBFS partition as partitioned, but unformatted space.

    Also, since you have to delete the WBFS anyway to resize the partition, consider making the whole drive FAT32 (eliminating WBFS entirely). You can store the games on the FAT32 partition.
