    Hello all,

    I'm trying to convert my WBFS partition to FAT32 using this guide (http://gbatemp.net/topic/292391-how-to-convert-from-wbfs-to-fat32-or-ntfs/)

    However when I tried to do so it told me the "WBFS is corrupted: Blocks used multiple Times (try "wwt -v" to fix)

    So I installed Wiimm's wwt and then used "wwt check" and it told me that 16 errors were found: 16 free WBFS sectors are marked as used."

    But then when I try to do "wwt repair" I get the following: !! wwt: ERROR #17 [NO WBFS FOUND] in AnalyzePartitions() @src/wbfs-interface.c#448
    !! no WBFS partitions found -> abort

    Why is this happening? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    did you run wwt with the partition as an argument?
    the repair option might not use the automatic selection to avoid accidents

    or try wbfs2fat v0.7a2
    if I interpret wwt's message right that error should not really be a problem

    even if you fix the partition it you might need to use it
    v0.6 is a bit to cautios
    even if it is an alpha im convident of its quality now
    but the still missing gui options kept me from releasing a real v0.7

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply

    I downloaded the GUI for wwt and was able to check and repair the WBFS but wbfs2fat still says it is corrupted

    I am looking for the v0.7a2 version but I can only find v0.6, can you give me a link please?

    Never mind, I managed to find it after some googling

    0.7 accepted the drive and everything worked out, thanks
