    Is there a wii application that can tell me how much memory my wii hard drive has left?
    I've search and nada.

    Screemer is right, there is no hard drive in the Wii.

    I'll just guess you meant NAND flash, in which case, your answer is no.

    If you goto WII > Settings > Data Management then it shows you how many blocks you have left in the bottom right hand corner.

    Space available is 512 and roughly in my experience you can fit about 4-5 VC games on and around the same number of other channels such as homebrew, backup loader, internet, etc.

    There's ~512 MB in the NAND.

    the wii has 512 and this is 4096 Nintendo blocks each block is about 128 kB. so you can go into the wii wii settings and see how many blocks you have left [​IMG]

    yeah but do we actually get a full 512mb storage? what about all them IOS's or whatever you install manually? all that like the sys menu is on the Nand aswell i assume, so we probably get about 475mb? i#m possibly wrong, i simply don't know

    Yea, well I found this Title Lister
    It only tells you what you apps have and also your IOS version. That's the closest I can get to the NAND Flash I guess.
    It wouldn't be too hard to make such tool.

    Thanks for the info guys [​IMG]
    With the math, I got roughly 8mb left.
