    Question compressing a backup

    Is there any way you can compress a wii backup game, say down too 500meg approx, as i have got a few games, and want to put them onto a external hdd, so if my kids knacker the discs (as kids do) i can just back it up again?

    hi m8
    just convert the back up disc to an iso file then compress it with winrar.

    compression will vary greatly, ive seen some stuff scrubbed down to 200meg, it all depends on how much real data is in the .iso file.
