    I see WIIFLOW supports it and I have the drive space to backup and restore my games.

    Then I can use the same partition for everything
    WII-ISO's
    Triiforce
    Movies
    Apps

    Triiforce and HBC (and other Homebrew-Loaders) don't support NTFS. Not to mention that it's not that stable, and the Wii can't write to it (no downloading covers, no ripping games from Drive, etc.). If you want that everything works, use FAT32.

    Ok I think I'll hold off then.

    I wonder if I lose some space if I use NTFS instead of WIIFS.

    dont know what wiifs is
    *.wbfs images use only neglegable amounts of aditional space over wbfs on disk
    *.wii aka *.wod aka *.iso(wrong) images use the full 4.7GB(or8.6GB for DL) (unless sparse, but thats hard to do)
    dont know about *.ciso

    no

    But you better stick with WBFS or FAT32 with scrubbed iso's (unless we're talking about Brawl, then you must have split wbfs files or something)

    You can't use scrubbed iso's on fat32, because they still take up >4gb.
    Some games can be rebuilt so they are smaller than 4gb and still fit in an iso, but you can't check that they haven't been tampered with ( as they have ).
    If you ever burnt them to disk to run with a modchip then you'd need to traucha patch your ios.

    wbfs files are the most compatible and simplest to deal with.
