WBFS reporting incorrect HDD Used Space

Jun 10, 2009 at 11:35 PM

Hi all

First I would like to say a big thank you for WBFS Manager, it is an excellent app.

I have been using it to transfer Wii ISOs to a 500GB HDD.  I have noticed that the Used Space display is incorrect and was wondering if there is a bug or other issue that I am not aware of.

I have transferred 70 ISOs to the HDD over the last 2 weeks, but have noticed that the Used Space is now reading 393.22GB - this gives an average of 5.6GB per ISO.  This has to be incorrect since most of the ISOs scrub down well below 2-3GB in most cases.  What is more puzzling is that it was reading 290GB Used Space last night and now reads 393.22GB (72.53G Free Space) after plugging the drive in this evening.

Has anybody else experienced this kind of behaviour.  Does the Wii save game information to the HDD when in use?  What could be causing this?

Any help will be appreciated as I do not want to run out of HDD space because WBFS Manager may be readin the HDD incorrectly.
