    Hey guys, my usb loader crashed today. I can't read it anymore. Searching this forum I found several people using wwt successfully to fix their drives.

    My problem is that wwt does not find my wbfs partition. I know it's in /dev/sdb1

    This is the output I'm getting:

    Code:
    $ wwt analyse
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sda
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sda1
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sda2
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sda3
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sda4
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sda5
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sda6
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sdb
    
    ANALYZE /dev/sdb1

    Is my only solution to format?

    Don't look at this as a setback, look at it as an opportunity [​IMG]

    Now you can get rid of WBFS and format your drive with one big, happy FAT32 partition [​IMG]

    The diagnostic told you:
    Code:
    !! wwt: Option --force must be set to formatting a WBFS!
    !! wwt:ÂÂ => test mode (like --test) enabled!
    
    # following that, use
    wwt init --recover /dev/sdb1 --force
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ ^^^^^^^
    You need --force because it's to easy to destroy any other file system with init
