    Are there still corruption problems with WBFS and stuff?
    I need to know because i don't really bother burning games now since my DVD burner is kind of dead and I have a ton of space on my 320GB HDD.

    Seagate Freeagent GO 320GB
    I use WBFS Manager 2.2.2 to copy games to and from it
    I use Ultimate Loader 6.7 based on 1.4

    So...what are the chances for my games messing up/corrupting when I install and uninstall games.
    I have some issues with Mario Galaxy freezing up so if it still does it even with sleep mode disabled I'll have to uninstall it and I don't want that to mess up all my games for which I have no other backups.

    I use a manager based on the WBFS_Delta.exe for windows and it has no issues at all...!! [​IMG]

    All dol/wad files based on SD/USB Loader v1.4 have the wbfs bug fixed. As for managers, just make sure that they mention having fixed the wbfs bug if they were initially released before v1.4 came out. The ones that have a "Yes" under the "Delete Bug Fixed" heading are safe:

    If you're comfortable with code, here's where the bug was discussed. It was really only 2 lines needing to be edited:

    i have the exact same hdd.. silver freeagent go 320gb (was on sale for $69).
    as soon as i bought it, i turned off the sleep mode using their provided software.
    i have 147 games installed on it so far... no corruption problem so far.. also mario galaxy runs fine..
    probably because i haven't deleted one single game using 1.1.
    now i tried deleting games with 1.4 and everything works fine... no corruption.
