    Update: For anyone who had the same bug, head over to my double post in the Hacking section :P for the solution.


    Yikes, a bit of a bug here:

    I was updating to the latest version of WiiMC (onto my fat32 HD, partition 1), it did so: downloaded then exited the program. then I went back in to WiiMC to check out the changes and I got a message that it couldn't find my usb:\Apps\WiiMC folder. Ok no big deal right?

    Turns out my the whole partition got garbled very quickly... almost instantly.
    Please have a look at the screenshot. I lost everything. about 270 gigs worth.


    Anybody recognize some of the text that my files and folders were replaced with? Windows chckdisk said there was file system errors and insufficient disk space to recover lost data.
    It left partition 2 untouched, yay.

    I am on the latest d2x beta v9 (r47) I used the recommended base setup on the wiiflow wiki.
    the latest Homebrew channel... priiloader... hmmm anything else?

    If there's any more info I can provide to help with please let me know.

    PS: Am I posting this in the right place? should this be in the Hacking forum?
