    Did you wait for them to finish deleting? 20GB is freakin huge. That much would probably take 30-40 minutes to finish deletion.
    I assume you exited Multiman during the deletion process since deleting them from Multiman XMB never gives you a progress bar.

    The File Path for Game Backups is HDD0;//GAMES(or GAMEZ). In there, you might be able to find the games you were trying to delete.
    I usually name my backup folders BLXX#####-[Name Please] so I can keep track of which folder is which game.

    The best way to monitor deletion in File Manager is to move between folders continuously and see the space open up. When the amount of space
    stops rising, it means deletion is finished.

    Edit:BTW, you shouldn't double post, Edit your original post with more details. You also aren't allowed to bump according to forum rules and wait for someone to respond.
    You can PM about any further problems. I'll respond whether I can help you or not though. With reasons.

    Try to delete multiman. I had much more space when I did that.
