    Hello, I'm going to softmod the vWii mode on my Wii U.

    Can I put everything (homebrew, ISOs, Nintendont etc) on a FAT32 64kb cluster size formatted external HDD?

    Is everything compatible with a 64 kb cluster size or do I need a 32 kb cluster size FAT32 partition?

    I put everything on a fat32 2tb hard drive and everything works like a charm.

    Another Code: R cannot be finished using 64 KB, it's not likely you'll encounter such an issue but I would just stick with 32 KB to avoid future problems. Devolution for example still has instant load times with HDDs formatted with the 32 KB size, so on Wii I'd say there's no benefit to 64 KB and just takes up more space.

    Most of the problems with 64 KB do not apply to vWii, like DM, neek2o, or other limited programs.
