Wii Backup File System Manager 3.0.1
Easily transfer files to a WBFS drive
For those unfamiliar with the WBFS term, it stands for Wii Backup File System, which facilitates the launching of Wii games from external devices while reducing the size of the discs to even less than 100 MB. Since there is no way to natively perform this operation in Windows, it’s compulsory to use a third-party application in order to transfer an ISO image to a WBFS drive.
Support for batch processing
This is where WBFS Manager intervenes. It bundles everything that you need to deploy your ISO to a USB drive, including the possibility to format to WBFS, add backups, extract ISO files, as well as to get and export the list of existing backups. In addition, the application supports batch operations and allows you to rename, delete and clone WBFS drives.
Visually appealing and easy to use
WBFS Manager relies on a standard installation procedure that shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete. As soon as deployment is finished, you can start to get acquainted with the user interface, which sports a simplistic, yet user-friendly appearance; the features are bundled in a few menus and buttons that are easy to spot and explore.
Little effort required on your behalf
Usage is not rocket science: after you’ve plugged in the USB removable drive, launch the application, select the drive letter assigned to the device and start the formatting operation (if you haven’t already), after which it’s safe to load its contents. The final step is to browse for and copy the ISO files (drag and drop is also supported) and to add them to the drive. You can now launch your favorite game from the USB stick.
To end with
In conclusion, WBFS Manager is an awesome choice for Wii enthusiasts. It’s easy to handle and is equipped with everything you need to transfer game ISOs to a WBFS formatted drive. You surely own a PC and if you happen to also own a Wii, then this is a must for you.
