    Well I just converted a 4GB Twilight Princess ISO to WBFS and I was shocked to see it was only about 1GB. So WBFS in my opinion. [​IMG]

    fat32 and .wbfs files is best because also u can store almost all homebrew on your drive as well.

    for only backup use wia: http://wit.wiimm.de/info/wia.html

    The best compression at all is:
    1.) convert it with --wia=none
    2.) compress it with the best compression tool you find (try 7zip first).

    wbfs, wia and cios all have good compressions. They really are not going to differ to where its going to matter.

    Format your drive to fat32, and use isotowbfs to convert your files. Unless you are just dumping your games in a usb loader.
    Configureable usb loader or usb loader gx is what you want.
