    Can I copy/burn WBFS compressed games from HDD to a DVD-R?

    Not to be playable, but purely for archival purposes. I know I can just burn the ISO's to a disc but the compressed versions would obviously fit a lot more onto a DVD and then also I could just copy those wbfs (ISO's or .WBFS I'm not sure the extension) back to the HDD if I ever need them. Anyone know if it's possible? Thanks a ton in advance! My hard drive on my PC is yelling at me for being too full I need to get some of this stuff burned off.

    You could use ncWBFSTool to extract the compressed iso and I imagine burning a few of those to dvd would work just fine for archiving.

    Edit: You could use Wiiscrubber to compress an iso that's already on your computer as well.

    Oh I forgot about that software, I've heard of it before. So it's my understanding that Wiiscrubber will basically compress the .ISO image (like WBFS Manager is doing now) but it is also still transferable to the HDD through WBFS Manager AND I can still burn the .ISO and play it in the DVD-ROM portion of the Wii?
