    As title states, I've installed a wad twice.

    When I was going to uninstall a wad in wadmanager, I forgot to switch to "uninstall"

    I uninstalled immediately after, but unfortunately 1 instance of the channel is still there and it works fine. Plus, wadmanager gives me an error when I try to uninstall again as if it wasn't there. So now I'm stuck with a channel I don't want taking up precious blocks.

    Anyone else make this mistake or have a possible solution for me?

    Can you delete it from wii data management since it's a channel?

    Yeah man, you DIDN'T installed the same WAD twice! They were different WADs, hence the duplicated channels.

    Each channel has a unique ID that identifies it. If you install 1, 2 o 1000 times the same WAD, it's the same: the previous gets overwrote and leaves you with only one channel instance. But in this case, since you have 2, you have two different channels IDs.

    Anyway, just use AnyTitle Deleter as suggested, that's all you need.
