    Wii backups on hard drive show as very small size on GX loader

    Hi all I've got my external usb drive to work with GX loader now.

    All my backups work fine.

    A couple of games have very low file size in the menu.

    It shows Wii sports as about 0.80gb which is obviously cant be?

    It works fine though, just wondered.

    My other games shows as realistic file sizes

    Thought id ask

    Thanks all once again!

    That's normal. When you transfer the .iso to your WBFS drive, it's "scrubbed" to remove unused space.

    Yeh i' seen that it reduces the size a lot of my games are about a gig smaller now.

    But Wii sport report only 0.80gig?

    the game cant be that small surly?

    Main reason I want to know its showing the right games sizes is so I know that the free space on my hard drive is correct

    It's correct. Some games are just very small. Edit: My Wii sports shows as 0.33gb. Resort is 0.70gb.

    New Super Mario Bros is actually a little under 400mb.
