    Arrow Wii Backup Manager - Why are the file sizes so different?

    Here's a screenie from my Backup Manager:



    My question is, why are some of the games 4-5x larger in size than others? Mario Kart vs. Super Mario Brothers, for example. I'd like to make as much room as possible on my jump drive to store games. What could I do to reduce/correct these file sizes? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Adding files to a WBFS drive removes all the useless data and update partition from the original .iso, leaving your file with only the relevant game data. There's no way to reduce the size beyond what you're reading there and still keep it functional.
