layout file. you either dump your own or get one from moogui website.

http://layouts.xbox-scene.com/

Some people prefer to "optimize" their backups so they work better and load faster. (Info in link)

I'd use MooGUI if you want to try it out.

There are various dummy file creators and you can realisitically just add any file thats the correct size, irregardless of its content...

And just for your information, the way you are presenting this, makes you sound very much 'pirate like'... If you catch my drift...
