    I recall somewhere that some people have problems when they reach 500 games. Some loaders have a 500 game "limit" and so this may be why WBM is giving you this issue.

    It's not a limit of USB loaders or WBFS managers, it is a (changeable) limit of the WBFS system. Follow my link above for details.

    For someone who is new to this, you sure have a lot of games.

    Can't say anything on-topic that hasn't already been said.

    I can understand if people wont want do change their current filesystem.
    But why anyone would choose WBFS for a new drive is beyond me.

    OP can you please enlighten me?

    - No fragmentation problems.
    - Absolute stable since using wwt.
    - Fast access.
    - Support for all USB loaders.
    - More than enough space for both, FAT and WBFS partition.
    - Far away from disc/game limit.
    I would choose WBFS again!
