    I just tested it and works fine [​IMG]. Thanks.

    So, if I always add games from pc and never from the usb loader, I won't to have corrupted games, right?
    I mean with the new WBFS Manager 2.2.1.


    Because I dont want to change the usb loader that I have yet to adn 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, or whatever.

    Thanks!

    I'd be grateful if you didnt post a link to a zipped up version without the installer. The reason I have the installer is to help people avoid confusion over not having .NET FW 3.5 SP1. Please send this link privately if you plan on doing so.
    Thanks.

    So here's my question.....I have a number of games that are corrupt from the old bug. My wife and I have been extracting the working games from the HD to reinstall and intended on reformatting and reinstalling everything before the WBFS corruption fix was released. So my question is, do we still need to reformat the drive and reinstall all the games from scratch, or can we safely delete just the corrupt games with WBFSM2.2 and reinstall those only without messing up the working games? I dont really savor waiting 2 hours to reinstall everything, so if I can get away with just deleting the corrupt games, that would be great.

    you'll have a little bit of unusable space, because 1 block was leaked for each game you deleted, so the choice is yours.

    So I shouldn't be worried about corrupting the existing good games by just deleting the corrupt games? That was my concern, as I didn't know if the bug was in the code that was used to format the drive to WBFS in the first place, therefore inherent in the filesystem itself, or it was a bug was simply in the code used for deleting games from the drive.

    My dilemna is this: I deleted all the original source ISOs from my PC. Even though I've backed up the good games, the way they extracted was peculiar, never getting above 49.80% in wbfs_win.exe, so I have no real way of knowing if they extracted properly from the drive or not. So, I can A) Take a gamble, reformat the drive and hope the ISOs extracted properly when I go to reinstall them, or B) Delete just the bad games, and hope since I formatted the drive with the bugged wbfs.exe that no more games will be corrupted, even with the new bug-fixed WBFS Manager.

    Thanks so much for the quick reply last time Troy.

    nah, the bug wasn't in the file system itself, its how the deletion of games was handled.

    Thanks for the quick reply again Troy, I feel a bit more at ease.

    Alex, have you considered adding some sort of CRC or MD5 hash checking to your manager for both the left and right view panes? It'd be excellent to know if a game is corrupt even before we install it, or verify existing USB drive images for any possible future corruption.

    Are you running this inside a virtual machine or something? Can you give the complete specs (hardware and OS and 32-bit/64-bit) on your system and whether or not you installed .NET FW 3.5 SP1 using the WBFS Manager setup or if you did it manually.
    Thanks.

    When I try to format my drive with WBFS Manager 2.2.2 it just doesn't do anything. I downloaded the 64bit version for my Vista 64bit.
    I have tried running it in compatibility mode and as Administrator, no difference.

    I have the same problem. Vista 64. It tells me that an error occurred when trying to format the drive.

    OK, I ran as admin and got the drive to format. I added a few games from .iso files and that transfered successfully.
    I can't see the drive on my wii. It's a Seagate FreeAgent Pro. I've tried everything, unplugging it at different times. Just can't get it to recognize.
