    Stop WBFS for Mac OS X un-scrubbing ISOs

    I want to back up the games on my WBFS hard drive as ISOs, but WBFS for Mac OS X unscrubs the ISOs. Is there any way to stop it doing this, or is there a scrubbing tool for OS X?

    That is what the wbfs file system is for, If you don't want this you'll have to load them from disk as this seems to be an essential part of usb loading.

    I thought the unscrubbed version (i.e. the full 4.7GB) was only necessary if you were burning it? The versions on the WBFS hard drive were as small as a few hundred megs. I don't want to burn them - I just want copies of the ISOs. I want them scrubbed so I can zip them up to the smaller size.

    There aren't any scrubbing tools ported for mac. You'll have to use windows through a virtual desktop or bootcamp. There are other managers that will allow you to extract a compressed .ciso, etc. but again, those are windows only. Unfortunately there just hasn't been high enough demand for mac users with these applications, as is usually the case.

    Thanks for confirming. I finally managed to find a copy of Wiiscrubber 1.4 for Windows and am trying it in XP under VirtualBox.

    Can someone just confirm that the following settings are correct for scrubbing an ISO copied using WBFS manager:

    Save Option: ISO
    Scrub Type: 0xFF
    Keep Headers: Yes

    The purpose of this will be to be copied back to the WBFS drive if necessary.
