    I'm having a storage crisis and maybe scrubbing ISOs before using WBFS would work?

    WBFS Format knows the difference between garbage data (that which wii scrubber removes) and actual data in the iso files so by transfering it to the WBFS it will give the same size as a scrubbed file.

    There seems to be some confusion on how WBFS works... The program takes the GAME partition from the game and puts it on the hard drive. That's it. It doesn't do anything special.

    When you take a game off of the hard drive, the WBFS program remakes the ISO file, but it doesn't make it identical to the original. It makes a "scrubbed" type ISO with a single partition (the game partition from the HDD).
