    I dumped Brawl to extract some files, and would like to know how to merge the two WBFS files into a complete ISO?

    Thanks,
    Shane.

    the files are simply split without any header or such
    if you don't want to use a manager you can simply concatenate the two files
    eg "cat X.wbfs X.wbf1 > largeX.wbfs" (in most operating systems, windows is of course different (copy \b ?))

    In windows it's "copy /B part1.ext + part2.ext full_file.ext"

    Do not forget the /B (for binary) or it will corrupt the resulted file.
    It doesn't delete your existing file, it creates a new one so you need enough space to store the newly created file.


    You can also use WiiBackupManager to load wbfs/wbf1 split files and save it as ISO, so you can open the file in WiiScrubber or TruchaSigner.

    If you have 7zip you can also rename your files like this:
    file.wbfs -> file.wbfs.001
    file.wbf1 -> file.wbfs.002
    Then "extract" file.wbfs.001 with 7zip.

    @fatherjack: I tried that and it can't open the WBF1 file.

    @Cyan: Yep, that's what I plan on doing after I merge the two files.

    you never mentioned about 'opening' it, you asked.
    wii backup manager can do that for you.
    make sure the .wbfs and .wbf1 are named the same and in the same folder, launch WBM, under 'inactive' choose your drive / custom folder and it will mount it and show any / all games present.
    click the checkbox and highlight the (large) game you require, then Transfer > ISO> choose where you want the ISO and WBM will make it there :)

    1. You replied to an old OLD (emphasis on the old) thread/post.
    2. I have yet to stumble on a file explorer that can unzip multiple files at once. You're better off using a pc.

    Click your 'drive 1' or 'drive 2' tabs and a drop-down box appears at top left to choose what directory you want to mount.
    It's pre populated as 'inactive'
    :)

    What if I don't have the money or own a pc. I simply just wanted to know a nice file manager that does that
