Default Dual-layer Ps2 copying

Ive rented out the PS2 game 'God of War' (excellent btw) and am now trying to 'back it up'. I have doen this successfully in the past using Toast, but this game seems to be on a dual-layer DVD and comes in at 7.5GB.

The thing is, Ive seen it on BitTorrent at a measly 2.9GB.

How is that possible? Is there anyway I can get it down to that size in order to burn it onto a single-layer DVD?

Well, i guess you could download the 2.9 gb version.
Im not an expert at this and dont pretend to be, but i think i read something about there being dummy files in the dvd. Theyre not exactly dummy files, but they are files that the game can run without. Like cutscenes or somethin. I might be wrong though....

They're compressed files, they take some data and compress it so it fits into a normal DVD (think of it like converting a .mov to a .mpeg, lower quality, but smaller file). It'll retain everything of the original though.
