    Scrubbing removes the "garbage" from the ISO, which makes it (sometimes) smaller. An Example: EA Sports Active: More Workouts goes from 4.4 GB to 1.78 GB. Uploaders who upload their ISOs often use this, so the people don't have to download much (btw, this is illegal). When you unrar the ISO it will be again 4.4 GB/the full size, like it should be, like an original. So, basicly: Normal people like you shouldn't care about it.*

    *Unless you want to save your games on your PC, and want to save Space. Though, the .wdf-Fileformat is a better way for that than Scrubbing.

    Yeah the guy above this post is right. Basically it just compresses the iso to a smaller size. You have to use WiiScrubber to do any of this though. WiiScrubber can be used for much more than scrubbing though
