Hello everyone, I am a bit confused about installion CIA files to a 3ds. (For once, this isn't urgent)

I can do it fine but bigredmenu tells me that I don't have much space on my SD card (Installing smash confused me when it just wouldn't work). Big red menu reported that I had roughly 1.3 GB free but when I checked my SD card, it reported 8GB free. After deleting 10GB of files (I was installing a lot today), big red menu only reported 1GB more free space, is there a reason for this? I don't mind the real technical details, I'm just really confused and Google couldn't help

FBI had problems installing certain .cias while DevMenu/BBM works perfectly every time so that's why I wouldn't really recommend FBI anymore.

As for your problem I wouldn't know. Care to give us more details? Pictures maybe?
Possibly a problem with the SD card? idk.
