    I had a 500gb drive I was using for my Wii awhile back, then decided I wanted to use it for my computer. Then I changed my mind again and formatted the drive to use for my Wii.

    This time though, now that I'm smarter than when I first started copying Wii games to it, I'd like to have a partition devoted entirely to roms.

    Also, it's been awhile since I've been around so I'm out of date on everything. I remember there being talks about being able to load WiiWare and VC from a hard drive through NAND emulation or whatever it was called, did that ever go through or are they still working on it?

    I'm just trying to decide on all of this so I know how much space I should devote to Wii games and how much needs to be for roms and wads.

    Also, since I'm on the subject (I could probably find this in a search but oh well) what file system seems to be the best for storing and reading roms (NES, SNES, etc.) on the Wii, would it be NTFS, FAT, or FAT32? Also, what program would allow me to create a separate WTFS partition and which partition should be created first? WTFS or NTFS/FAT/FAT32?

    Great, thanks for your help. Triiforce looks like a bit of work but I'll look into it. I made the FAT32 partition 10 gigs just in case.
