Is there a way to expand a WBFS partition .

Sep 24, 2009 at 12:18 AM

Currently i have one wbfs partiton which is about 32 gigs, the total hard drive size is 160 gb, the is one 19 gb  fat 32 partition, as well as 100 gigs of unalocated space.

Is there a way to expand my wbfs partition, or would it be easer to back up my isos, wipe the hdd and try and format a 160 gig partion as WBFS( i wanted to do this originally but i couldn't find a way to create a fat 32 partion thats 160 gbs, since usb loader wont format a nfts partition.

I guess, NO! I lost 100GB of ISOs, when I tried to reduce the size of the NTFS Partition (with some partition manager) on my ext. USB drive    :-(((

ABSOLUTLY!!

No use!  With the windows tool (or any partition manager) you delete every partion, primary and logical drive on the HD.

Then create a new logical drive (Or, if it won't work, try a primary drive) with a dedicated drive letter BUT NOT FORMATTING it to any filesystem, (as wbfsmanager formats it).

Then start wbfsmanager, load the right drive letter :-), and format to WBFS
