    wii backup manager

    just been looking about in the wii backup manager...


    i was looking at the sizes of the games before i moved them over via wii backup manager

    and noticed that the size of the game to start off with is almost twice the size it ends up on the external hd,

    example UFC Personal Trainer is 4.37 gb,
    when i put it over onto my external HD via wii backup it now only shows 2.40gb on the external HD??

    how is this possible is it something todo with the format it uses?
    or is it taking bits out of the game like video clips and stuff??

    also is it loosing quality???

    i know im asking alot of questions but thats how we learn lol

    the games are getting "scrubbed" removing things it doesnt need like updates and such.

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here
