    so far, i've tried a lot of vc and wiiware and custom channels.
    and when i wanted to delete them, i just went to wii setting -> channels then delete from there.
    but someone told me i should always use wad manager to delete these?
    does it really make any difference?

    yup... your leaving small bits of data behind which takes up space...

    rule of thumb use wadmanager to install/uninstall... but if you have an emergency or problem wad use anytitle deleter.....

    use tie listter to savr a list of titles to a txt file on your sd card then copy paste the contents of it here and well see what you have on the wii....

    also no you won't see it... you might have to do a format... to regain space....

    i've installed and deleted so many, i can't remember them.
    so if i format, my homebrew channel will also disappear.. and do i need the original zelda disk again? because i don't have one anymore.

    It's the reverse, use the (-) on the controller. But you need the wad that you used installing it. Go to the wad just like when you are installing and press (-) and it will ask you if you want to uninstall. [​IMG]

    i THINK that if you just put the channel on an sd card, you can put it back on your wii later?
    not sure though
