    I have a drive I use for my PS3 backups that I'd like to put my Wii backups on. The problem is FAT32 formatted drives don't support files larger than 4GB. Is there a solution besides creating a new partition? And if I shrink the current partition to create a new one for the Wii games, will all my existing files have to be moved or is it a quick process?

    WiiBackupManager will split the files as it puts them on the drive.

    Convert your wii backup iso's to wbfs format. Most of them should be smaller than 4.7Gig already.
    I use "Wii Game Manager" for that purpose. It splits larger wbfs files (>4.7Gig) as well.
