    Small Question about WBFS

    Hi guys, I'm not sure if this is a right place to ask ? but I'm using WBFS for the first time, I downloaded a test game about 400Mb, it extracts to a huge iso file ~4.8Gb, then I using WBFS to put it in my usb (only 4Gb) at first I thought it would not fit but I see it says something like Estimated size for only 0.05GB compared to the huge total size, it's fits my USB and run perfectly but
    I just wonder if it's going right ?
    why there is a much different between Estimated and Total Size ?
    Some TuT says I have to install the game in usbloader and then boot it but for me I just can run it directly in usb loader without installing.

    Everything is fine. Almost every ISO will be about 4.73 gigs. That is because the dvd wii games use holds 4.73 GB. A few games are dual-layered and hold more space. However most games do not need all the space on the dvd, so the rest of space is filled with garbage. When you extract a game to your computer, it displays the whole size of the dvd, but WBFS Manager automatically scrubs the iso (gets rid of the extra garbage), so that only the necessary files for the game go on your hdd.

    For installing a game with usbloader, that is how you rip a retail disc to your hdd. However, if you already have the game as an iso, then you can boot it with almost any usb loader.
