    Hi guys. I have a External Hard Disk to use with USB Loader GX games from my Wii times ( now I use it on vWii) with 500GB (FAT32). I also have another External Hard Disk with 1TB that I have encrypted with Veracrypt. I just had one ideia ( I'm having to many ideas today lol). Basically, creating a disk partition on the 1TB disk that wouldn't be encrypted and store there the USB Loader GX games to the vWii. On the other side, formating the 500GB disk to use it with the WiiU Native format. I know that you can't use a partition on a disk when using it with the WiiU system. But, can I do it with the disk encrypted and with USB Loader GX? Actually, I've left the 1TB disk with 30GB not encrypted, so I could expand it a little more to 150GB that is the size my vWii games occup. So, what are your thougts about this? If it was a little misunderstanding, I will explain it better:

    • What I actually have:
      • A 500GB Disk for the vWii games using with USB Loader GX
      • A 1TB Disk Encrypted and only 30GB unencrypted. I use this disk only as a backup of my PC HD.
    • What I thougt that I could have:
      • A 500GB Disk formatted to use with the WiiU (with Haxchi)
      • A 1TB Disk Encrypted and only 150GB unencrypted ( could also create a partition with 150GB and encrypt the other one). Planning to use this as a backup of my PC HD ( the encrypted part) and as a vWii USB Loader GX.
    Thanks in advance :yayu:

    Yes, USB loader GX supports multiple partitions, though Nintendont might not. I think it will only work in Nintendont if it's the first partition on the drive.

    I don't use Nintendont so, that isn't a problem. Also, what should I do. Leave the 1TB disk with only 1 partition and with 150GB unencrypted or create a partition only to USB Loader GX and another partition fully encrypted?

    Doesn't really matter.
    Edit: Wait, the partition is only partially encrypted? How does that work? Are the files just encrypted individually?

    Ok, thanks. Another thing. Since the 500GB disk is FAT32 and the 1TB is NTFS, is there anything special to do, or I only need to copy-paste the games folder onto the 1TB disk?

    USB Loader GX works fine with NTFS, though most other homebrew doesn't.

    Ok, since I only use USB Loader GX, it doesn't really matter. Thank you very much for helping me :yayu:
