    Well I have just ordered this and am wondering wheather it would work if I partitioned it 3 times one WBFS for Wii games the other FAT32 (used to say NTFS) for homebrew channel and loader stuff and another NTFS for backing up my laptop ( 80 Gb memory)?

    1) Wrong section.
    2) I'm not sure if the HBC reads NTFS drives yet for homebrew and loaders (I know some USB loaders have compatibility). I'd use a FAT32 partition.
    3) Having three partitions shouldn't be much issue, as long as the HBC is able to find all of the stuff it needs through the partitions. I've had issues with detection even without multiple partitions, so I guess it's more trial and error at this point.
