    hi guys,

    i've got a wii, which is already fully soft-modded with a 500gb hdd. My problem is that i made a mistake as i should have use a 250gb hdd which is more than sufficient for my needs and now i would like to take the 500gb back to use on my PC. Now here are my questions:-

    1. If possible, how can i transfer/copy/clone all the wii data from one hdd to another without having to redo the mod again?

    2. If the above is possible, then does it matter if i've split the 500gb hdd into two partitions? (I want to copy the whole lot!!!).


    I urgently need a reply as i need to setup a newly built PC ASAP for my work.


    Thanks for helping.

    after doing somemore searching, i have realised that wbfsmanager allows you to clone the hdd. But will it matter than the wii drive is 500gb and the hdd i want to transfer to is 250gb?

    pls pls help me.

    Well, first off. Learn2Spell, it's please. You're asking for help. The least you could do is spell it right.

    Using wbfsmanager, clone the 500 gb drive, and put it on on the 250 GB drive. Then simply format the 500 GB drive.

    There won't be any problems, unless of course you have more then 250 GB worth of data, but I doubt it.

    use wii backup manager instead... as that supports hard drives that are partitioned as wbfs, fat32 and ntfs
