    Hi, I've been trying to split ISOs and WBFS files with the wit tool, but no success.

    I'm using a USB FAT32 FS since the WBFS partition got corrupted several times already.


    The Commands I'm trying, (I'm in OSX/Terminal) are for instance:

    wit CONVERT -z source.wbfs destinationfolder
    and
    wit COPY -z source.ISO destination.wbfs -B

    But these just create the new file with the SAME source's size, is not splitting the file at 4GB barrier (for FAT32) as it should.

    Anyone can point out what am I doing wrongly?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Use Wii Backup Manager, it splits automatically and removes any partitions that you don't want.

    Believe me I would if I was in Windows, but I'm in OSX as I mentioned.

    I've checked several tools before I got to Wiimms which is actually very good for other stuff, but in this particular case I do not know what's happening, it just build up +4GB wbfs files no matter I especially put the split (-z or --split) parameter, even tried with the specified filesize (-Z or --split-size) one but I got the same result.

    Seems to be working!! I tried the 4GB size but it split the file in 4.1 and 75 megs hahahaha. I'm re-testing now at 3.9GB to see the result, I'll keep you posted, thanks for the apparent solution!!!

    What is the exact size in bytes of your files?
    The default split size if 4GiB-32KiB = 4294934528 bytes = 0xFFFF8000 bytes.
    Use for example -Z4g (upper case 'Z', lower case 'g') to split at exact 4000000000 bytes.
