    What is the fastest way of extracting to an ISO off WBFS? Seems to take forever on the few things I have tried - is it a limitation with wbfs.exe itself?

    It goes pretty fast for me. Does your computer only have USB 1.1 ports or something?

    Try this, its WBFS Manager 1.0. You can extract an ISO off of your WBFS drive.

    the only issue i have come up with is that it dont read up to 100% when ripping the Game to the PC ..

    it seems to only make it to 48% then kick it out but the ISO is 100% Compleat on the PC side . [​IMG]

    WBFS Manager sorted it. It took no more than 5 minutes where previously it was taking 20+. Cheers guys.

    is there anyway of "extracting" the ISO off of the wbfs filesystem so that it keeps its small/scrubbed size? i'd really love to save me some HD space while storing my isos 4.5gb instead of 500mb in some instances is rather inefficient [​IMG]
    (without zip/rar'ing up the ISO that is)

    U could scrub the isos again with wiiscrubber & the "trucha" method...
    ...but i would prefer "zipping" because it is much safer for the future.

    I thought the USB loader sizes were smaller than if you'd used WiiScrubber anyway.... I'm with the funkygibbon though, I'd like to be able to dump off the shrunken sized images without needing to ZIP/unZIP or RAR/unRAR a 4.37GB image every time I wanted it back [​IMG]

    i guess theres no way to do it yet then. even if you scrub a iso the resulting ISO is still 4.5gb. its only any smaller if you zip it up. kinda defeats the object [​IMG]
