    Hi, I was wondering what the difference between the original and the scrubbed version of Super Mario Galaxy 2. What has been removed?

    Unused and/or blank data.

    Ah, so there won't be any gameplay differences; only the dummy data will be removed correct?

    Scrubbed versions of games are just versions that have the random crap that is not necessary made into something so winrar can compile it much smaller. When the game is extracted, it will be the normal size (and yes, still have all the files for the game)

    Data from an optical disk can be read faster from the outside of the disk than can be read from the inside of the disk. However the inside of the disk is where data is stored first, so console disks will have dummy data on the inside so all the data gets pushed towards the outside of the disk. This increases the read speed.

    Dumps will contain all the data, scrumbing removes the dummy data from the inside of the track.
