    I think, topic "Wii backup Manager for Windows" must be sticky.

    The reason is very easy:
    There are only 2 WBFS managers (hope this is correct) that are still active under development: wwt (part of my iso tools) and WBM. My tools are cli and more for experts and are included in some other tools. But WBM is the "WBFS Manager for the average user and for beginners".

    If WBM becomes sticky, it is a recommendation to use it and not some old (and sometime buggy) other managers.


    btw:
    I don't use WBM (sorry fig), but it's always my recommendation for others.

    If it can rename .iso and .wbfs files on FAT32 and NTFS partitions as well, i'll vote for this too. If not, WBFS partitions are outdated, only one usb loader still relies on them, all others support better filesystems.

    I agree.

    WBM offers merging direct physical DVD backups into hdd partitions, skipping the "iso create" process (it happens anyway, but you don't waste that much time if you're in a hurry), plus it gives WBFS, FAT32, NTFS hdd partition support.

    To tell you the truth WBM IS the manager of choice anyway.

    It doesnt need to be, but theres no reason NOT to stick it. Its an excellent app every backup player should know of.

    Yes at least one manager should be up there.

    If there are concerns about to many sticky posts (a very bad thing imho),
    I suggest unsticking ONE of the TWO NeoGamma stickies.

    Cheers guys. No need to guess how I voted. :)

    @Wiimm
    I totally understand why you're not using WBM. The same reason we both coded apps so completely different. :) I always recommend your tools to verify anything that might be a bug in WBM too.
