    After using the Brazilian USB install method I had one game not install correctly and now when I go to my USB storage through data management it tells me,

    "Found unnecessary data. Do you want to delete it to make more space?"

    I have selected "Delete" twice now and left it for a whole day and it never seems to do anything. Has anyone found a fix for this?

    Download a free game from the eshop, play it and then delete it. That should fix your issue.

    Get that game you failed to install, and install that game correctly, I fixed mine this way.

    I concur with jimmyz. Tried to install scribblenauts unlimited and failed, and it said this. When I installed the game properly, it said it no more

    You need to download the demo then immediately go and remove the unnecessary data do not play the demo do not unistall the demo until the unnecessary data is removed I have used this method several times and up always works.
