Is it possible to create a new NTFS partition on a WBFS drive without losing all of the backups I have on there?

Thank you.

creating or deleting partitions does not influence other partitions
you can eg delete a number of partitions on the drive and create a new one for the ntfs in their place

but things get much more complicated if you want to change the size of the wbfs partition to make space
curently there is no tool to do that

as wbfs is not recomended anyway, I suggest you switch to loading games from FAT or NTFS instead
then there might not be need for two partitions anymore, and even if there is there are tools to resize them

Yeah, sorry, I need to resize the current WBFS partition as it is currently the entire drive. I had no idea you could use NTSF partitions for backup managers, I thought it had to be WBFS. I have no way of backing up this drive before formatting it to NTFS then moving everything back over. The entire reason I'm trying to resize this partition is because I'm short on drive space across all my computers and really need the space that isn't being used on my WBFS drive.

    I think that's why I focus on just enjoying single player experiences that aren't too competitive

    That must be rough. Productive I'm sure but hard to balance with daily life

    @Maximumbeans, Indeed. I've been working on getting this Infecutus chip to work on my PS2. But after soldering, I realised that a plastic piece was missing from the power ribbon cable to the power and eject buttons.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Now I could go with soldering the contacts from the cable to the connector on the mobo, but doesn't sound like a good permanent solution.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Man, that's beyond my brain :rofl: I'm no good with hardware for now. I'd like to get into hardmods in future though
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Maybe start practice soldering. Get a cheap-ass soldering iron and follow some good YouTube tutorials.

    Least my experience has gotten better than over a decade ago. My iron would constantly bump into components and break them.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Sounds good. I actually did soldering but like 16 years ago for school so uuuuh probably rusty haha
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Same here. I did soldering at school from a teacher who I honestly liked since he had plenty of good electronics experience.

    @Maximumbeans, I had a friend who had a glass chess set for their birthday.

    That sounds really cool
