I've been backing up my games using the Xtreme method and my toshiba drive. However now that I have my 10 games backed up my hard drive is full do to the fact that each game has 2 7gb+ files (the raw iso image made by ISObuster and te .000 file made by the batch360 file). I only used the .000 with CloneCD to burn the disk since its patched.
My questions is will I need the raw image for anything? If there ever is a modchip will the patched .000 files work with it? I want to free up some room so I would like to delete all the raw ISO images.

I am not sure why you would want to keep them, if you have the original then you can always make another backup if need be or even use the backup to make another clone. Halfway down the first page on the above thread it explains how. Don't worry about the first comment written. Read and you'll see waht i mean.
Hope that helps
