    is there anybody who knows of a tool to resize/move wbfs partitions? that way i don't need to redump everything to pc and then move them back again...

    i would like to know this also, but since WBFS format isnt very widely known i dont know if a partitioner will have been made that will recognise the format...

    surely someone will have the knowledge on this forum to make one, if anyone thought it was worth it XD

    i doubt it.
    but if someone with enough know how could modify gparted's source to recognize wbfs that would be just super.

    I think you can modify the partition table with a hex editor, e.g. WinHex.

    can you also tell us how? cause it would take a lot of time to dump everything to my pc resize/move and then redump everything and i'm afraid that moving with powerquest partition magic will erase the data as it reconizes the partition as a unformated partition...

    i tried the move with partition magic way, but that causes all iso's to be deleted... so don't do that if you haven't backuped your iso's... or you'll lose them all
