    Scrubbing is the permanent deletion of the data in the unused portions of the disc by overwriting.
    Reversing this process is simply not possible short of things like restoring a backup or reripping.

    You probably need to convert it to ISO first
    But even then, you'll need a diff file to do it (it can't magically recreate the data out of nowhere)

    Other than that, any reason to unscrub it?

    You can use:

    Wii convertor GUI 1.5.0

    or:

    Wii backup manager

    Where do the tools get the data from?

    And why would I want it back?

    They just fill it up with zeros [​IMG]

    As I said, you need a diff file if you want to unscrubb

    Yes so did I in post #3

    But then some guys posted tools (2 Posts above mine)
    and I wondered "why (n how) unscrub?".

    It might be possible the filler data is actually created by a algorithm.
    Could be used in copy protection.

    you will have to convert it back to .iso

    but what has that to do with (un)scrubbing
