    i am trying to shrink the size of my WBFS partition.

    the only way i know how is to remove everything off of that partition, resize it, then put everything back on. the games on that partition are automatically shrunken when they go on but when i remove them they go back to there full iso size of around 4GB. i don't have the space to back them up at that size.

    i am using WBFS Manager 3.0 which is probably outdated by now.

    can someone help me use WBFS Manger 3.0 for this task or suggest a better program for managing my WBFS partition?
    Thank you in advance.

    on the pc:
    take an ntfs partition, make a new folder for your iso's and enable ntfs file compression...

    I suggest extracting them into .wbfs files and then simply loading them from FAT32 or NTFS from here on out.

    I haven't heard of any compatibility issues at all.

    And you should go into the thread for configurable usb loader and get wbfs_file.exe. You can look in the readme for info on how to extract everything from your WBFS partition into .wbfs files in one go.
