    Just about an unlimited size, but if you are going to use a big one, I'd recommend getting an externally powered one, especially if it is mechanical.

    1TB formatted to NTFS should work, I don't know about hacking every firmware version, but you can definitely hack the latest one (4.3) so if you have a Wii that isn't on 4.3, just update then you can, and yes, you can play GameCube games with the hack, either using the built-in support for it (if your Wii has it in the first place), or if it doesn't have support, or you don't have a GameCube controller or memory card, or would rather have the games on an SD card or that external drive, I'd recommend Nintendont. Just look it up and you'll find it.

    1TB formattted to FAT32 will definitely work. Just don't format it to WBFS, it's old an not needed anymore and should have be depricated long ago.

    There's also no point in formatting a 1TB to NTFS. NTFS support is not universal on Wii homebrew. FAT32 is.
