    As the latest ios module in cfg loader is filesystem/fileformat independent it should be relativly easy if you know how to use the module and know the wdf structure well, I guess oggzee knows the module at best but not wdf and wiimm knows wdf at best but not the module.
    I understood it this way:
    The loader tells the Âios-module which sectors on the hdd represent which sectors on the wii-disc. So it doesn't matter if you are using FAT/NTFS/HFS/EXT or if you use .iso/.wbfs/.wdf/.ciso as long as your file format keeps all needed data untouched and only removes junk so that you can point the ios to the data parts.

    App and source:

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XVOASXNX


    Do one file before your entire batch, just to make sure it does what you want it to. And remember to select the files in the list that you want renamed.

    but another feature request:
    insead of copying, could you add a button to MOVE file to its destination?!
    (my disk/pc is currently very full, no temp space left [​IMG])

    Alternatively, you could :

    * make a new folder in windows explorer
    * Right-click and choose properties.
    * Click advanced, then select "Compress contents to save disk space"
    * copy any iso into that folder (note: move does not work)
    * check the disk size, and the size on disk (it will equal the scrubbed size, not the 4.7GB size)

    of course this only works on an NTFS drive.

    Compressed folders in NTFS and sparse files are not the same thing. Read up.

    this app does not work for me at all..

    I have scrubbed ISO files that are full size on my HD.. I try to run this through the tool letting it copy the files directly to my external NTFS formatted HD.
    The file size is still 4.67 gigs or so (for both physical size and size on disk)when it should be 2.6 gigs.. for the generated file.

    I have tried using wiiscrubber, wii backup manager 3.5r1 beta to even scrub.. I have tested every scenario Ican think of.

    does anyone have a good reason why I shouldn't just use .wbfs files ? All the loaders seem support it.. I only hear complaints about CISO files..

    "wit copy source... dest" supports sparse handling.
    If you don't like scrubbing then use option --raw

    check that you really scrubbed with 0s (0x00) not 1s (0xFF)
    sparse files only save space on sequences of 0s
