    you are confused i think you formatted your drive to wbfs?
    wbfs files go in a regular folder on a fat32 or ntfs formatted drive if you havent already put any games on your wbfs formatted usb go ahead and reformat to fat32 now for simplicity later on

    A .wbfs file is used for FAT32/NTFS partitions. They can be converted to .ISO with some WBFS Managers (like the already named Wii Backup/Game Managers).

    The .wbf1 file is there because the game is too big to be stored in 1 file (for FAT32, because there's a 4GB limit on files there)
