    Wii Scrubber Few questions if anyone can help?

    Playing around with this little application this morning but got some questions now
    for anyone else who uses this or has used this often and messed about with it.

    Say i had a LG drive and created 1:1 iso of a game lets says 4.37GB
    and i used wii scrubber which would let me then compress that game to a much smaller size.

    here is my question if i used say will backup manager or any ISO to wbfs converter
    that converts the file as small or smaller than using the scrubber application.

    am i right in saying when converting to a wbfs file it's removing all the data that wii scrubber does to an iso?
    if not then can a scrubbed ISO be converted into a much less file size when its converted to wbfs?

    i would try this myself but my pc is old and trying to compress the iso says 6 hrs +

    Anyone else interested in testing this out? basically seeing if you can compress scrubbed iso much smaller in wbfs
    and compressing that scrubbbed iso'd converted to wbfs to see if it will make it even smaller?

    hiya shift, good to see you, well you can't scrub the wbfs file it's not possible but looking at the difference between a scrubbed iso and a converted wbfs file
    there is hardly any difference what so ever in size, so i don't know for sure as i a have never reversed engineered a wii game before but i am sure when converting the file to wbfs it's basically doing everything wii scrubber is on the iso. anyone else like to cherp in?

    A standard Wii ISO is the game data plus a bunch of random 1's and 0's to fill up the rest of the disk. When you scrub an ISO it removes all the non-game data (all of those random 1's and 0's). A .wbfs game is also just the game data. So the size difference will be miniscule.
