    so when i copied games from 3.5 to 2.5 it does shrink more but it is because wbfs manager for some reason compresses at different sizes for 2.5 and 3.5 hard drives

    so a pocket size 500gb hard drive is gonna hold more games than a 500gb book size hard drive

    just thought this would be useful information for somebody else
    This is so false!!! Both HDD can hold the same amount. The problem in your situation is the block size and probably partition type. One can be ntfs, the other fat32. Also, look for the "space on disk" and not "size" part, it could be different.

    If you have 300 megs file on a 8k block hdd, and you put the same on a 32k block hdd, you're second hdd will likely waste more space (can't have 2 different data on same block) thus appear that the same file is taking more place on the hdd, but it's only your partition scheme.

    Hello everybody,

    Yesterday i just bought a wii. I've modded it and now i'm playing the games from 8GB Flash. I found in thep*ratebay many "scrubbed" games, which are very little - TvC was 1.4GB. And now, my question is, how they make them so small ? I'm "scrubbing" them with Wiiscrubber but iso's are with the same size. Please, tell me how to do that, becouse my flash is small and i want to put more games. Sorry if there's a topic about it, i couldnt find anything about that.

    scrubbing doesn't reduce size directly, it remove unused data (such as update partition). To make it smaller, you must use the trim command. If your game hasn't been scrubbed first, I suggest you do then make a trim.

    True enough. The space saving comes in if you either a. compress the image (like into winrar, zip, etc) or b. install it to a HD attached to the Wii. If you do this solely for the purpose of burning as an image to blank DVD, it will still take up the entire disc. Some folks still prefer doing this (disc users only) as a form of "brick blocking" as some refer to it.

    So this means that when i transfer the iso to WBFS partition(usb flash) it automatically "shrinks" ? Then, i'll use wiiscrubber to remove update partition, use wii backup manager to convert to wbfs and then transfer the created file. Thank you very much, and sorry for my bad english, i'm bulgarian

    You do not need to remove the update partition when using a usb loader, the usb loader will not read the update partition of the ISO. The ISO does not shrink, the junk data is removed from the ISO, a game like Guitar Hero 5 will still be over 4GB in size, because there is not much junk data in the ISO. Sizes vary from game to game.

    You're confused. On the Wii (this ain't the PC and don't confuse ripping there ie stripping stuff to bare minimum to this), there's a data partition and an update partition. Effectively the update partition contains extraneous stuff for a softmodded user. A lot of padding goes into it and if you strip or remove it, the final disc image can be compressed far more than with it left intact.

    While I cannot answer your two questions, if you look at the illustrations you'll see they're enabled and what they're set to.

    It's not deleting any files it's just deleting filler data. A scrubbed game and a non-scrubbed game contain the same content. No loss of videos, music, or whatever like a PC rip. I can't tell you about "Scrub type" or "Keep headers" because I don't use this program. I let WBFS Manager or USB Loader GX scrub my games.
