    I have recently bought a new external HD with more space and I want to transfer my back-ups to the new HD but no matter what I do, they somehow get corrupted along the way. I have used WBFS Manager and WBFS Intelligent and both have failed. I also tried first extracting it to my PC, then to my new drive but it still doesn't work.

    I noticed that after adding them to the new drive it always reads .02GB higher than normal or no size at all. Am I missing a step here? Many thanks to anyone who can help.

    what format are these drives? i recently moved from a 500gb wbfs to a 2tb fat32, and wii backup manager did all the heavy lifting for me - no runs, drips or errors.

    They are RAW as far as I know. I formated the drive through WBFS Manager so I guess it's a WBFS format. I use USBLoaderGX and, as far as I know, it can only load WBFS partitions.

    In the mean time, i'll try out the Wii Backup Manager you mentioned.

    EDIT: I tried Wii Backup Manager and it ended the same. The file went into the new drive with a larger size than normal. I'm just assuming that means it's corrupted, right? Or is that what it's supposed to do?

    USBloaderGX runs FAT32 or NTFS as well.
    Are you moving *to* a WBFS drive? If not you could be just extracting the files as .wbfs and dropping them onto the ntfs/fat drive. might be worth changing formats while you have the chance too, WBFS is kinda outdated and inconvenient.
