    It's really simple: I have a WBFS formatted USB drive, and it's working perfectly.... However, i need some extra storage space on my PC, so i decided to use it for that too..... Is it possible to resize my WBFS partition and format the rest as FaT32 or NTFS? And if so, how?

    PS: I'm using ubuntu linux
    PPS: I'm kind of a noob, so be gentle... xD

    Curently its not possible to resize a wbfs partition.
    It would be easy to program but most ppl have lost interest in wbfs partitions since normal (fat,ntfs,ext) fs can be used.
    You would have delete and recreate it.

    But switching to fat32 entirely instead would have the benefit of using the same shared space for wii homebrew, wii games and normal files.

    If you dont have the time or space to do the back and forth copying you might want to give wbfs2fat a try.
    It does the conversion on the fly in a few seconds.

    Tried doing that.... Didn't work, error6'd on me.... So i got WWT and used the verify function (as the guide instructed me to)..... Well, it outputs a whole bunch of crap to the terminal, and exits..... But that didn't fix the error, am i doing something wrong?

    PS: Terminal output

    the verify function did exactly what it is supposed to do: scan for errors and report them

    to fix the errors you have multiple options
    you may simply remove the corrupted games and rerip them later when the conversion is finished
    or you might try wwt's repair function
    or simply ignore the errors (option since v0.7a2 - last resort kind of thing)

    you might need to use v0.7a2 anyway (see last part the wbfs2fat post)
