    Hi there, I have used GBATEMP many times for information and always found what I wanted, until now.
    I have a softmodded Wii and external USB HDD which was almost full.
    In just now trying to add another game to the drive WBFS Manager appeared to complete succesfully and then showed the drive completely full, but the new game does not appear in the list of games installed to the WBFS drive. I thought maybe it had run out of space and failed, so I removed a couple of others games and tried again, the same happened. So now I seem to have "lost" the drive space 3 times, but the game still not not appear on the WBFS drive :-(
    any help would be much appreciated as it is for my boy and he's more important than me !! ;-)
    thanks

    Agreed, I would really consider using FAT32 instead.
    The problem is only going to come up again.
    The conversion is really fast and easy nowadays. :rolleyes:

    I was about to suggest you use Wii Backup Manager, actually. Not for that, but for Wii backups in general. It's the most popular backup manager, and not without reason.
    WBFS manager is pretty old and obsolete.
