    Hey guys,

    i was wondering if there's a way to get wbfs partitions bigger than 512gb to work.
    i'm planning to buy a 1tb drive and add just 1 partition.

    is there a way to get bigger partitions working?

    afaik the only problem is that the usb loader can't dump on partitions bigger than 512GB, all the rest should work fine.
    There is no solution for this yet
    And your going to use 1TB only for backups? [​IMG]

    yup. i'll just use it for backups.
    so i dont have to buy a bigger drive in future [​IMG]

    well if it cant dump to partitions bigger than 512 gb.
    is it for the loader to load games from a 1tb partitions?
    i mean can it read beyond the 512gb limit.

    it will read partitions larger than 512GB, just not write to them

    Also waiting for a Fix for this...let's see what the next Update from Waninkoko will bring..he's working so hard on the loader, so I guess if it's possible to fix it, he'll do that soon...but currently I have 52 Games installed, and my 500GB-Partition is only 1/5 full...so I can wait a little longer...[​IMG]. And I think this Option is realy needed...because sometimes, I'm still buying games...and ripping is faster than downloading...

    it's no problem to re-dump my games on my comp again.
    would be much nicer to dump them on my wii tho :/
