    Hi all,

    I want to change my HDD from a 160gig to a 500gig but have it partitioned using both NTFS and WBFS(yes, I understand FAT is an option).

    What is the quickest way to move games from HDD to HDD as WBFS Manager seems to re-image the game from the disc back to a temp 4.7Gig file and then used this file to copy back to the other disc and shrink.
    Is there a quicker way?

    I thought if I could use WBFSDrive to recongise the WBFS format I could then just copy from HDD to HDD but this program seems to have a problem when 2 WBFS drives are connected.

    I've looked at cloning but read it copies the disc size over as well which doesn't help.

    What other options do I have?

    Thanks

    I have seen the clone in WBFS Manager but that still seems to write the game back as an 4.7gig to the local machine and then do the normal compress option back to the new drive.

    That's perfect longtom1. Just copies from drive to drive and its quick...

    I was on the complete guide there and got the wbfs driver and that but didn't see that program...

    Thanks again. Case closed.
