    Hello everyone. I have a quick question.
    Recently I purchased a 1TB HDD filled with 500 games. I asked the person who I purchased it from if I could copy/clone the drive using wbfs manager. He said its not a good idea because there is a chance the original 1tb hdd could get corrupted if i use the drve - to drive option.

    My question is. Is the statement he made true?

    if it's formatted in wbfs than yes there's a chance it could happen.

    why would you want to clone it in the first place
    make the new one fat32 and extract all games to it

    Thanks psyblade
    The hdd with the games is wbfs format. If i use the wbfs manager there is a extract option. What are the chances of corruption if i extract the games?

    Also how would i get the wii to read games off a fat32?

    The chance of corruption is 0 just from reading a drive (unless you have some serious hardware problems.)

    As for fat32, both of the two main usb loaders, wiiflow, and cgf loader support it.

    use wiibackup manager and tell it to install games as wbfs to a fat32 partition.

    choose transfer - wbfs file and select the fat32 drive/partition.
