    I have just installed the new, PS3 AVCHD and Game Manager Mod of OBM manager, and stupid me forgot about the deleting of all your games when installing a different manager. My question is are the game all deleted or are they still stored on the inter HDD somewhere, as im sure the HDD space has stayed the same even though the Gamez folder isnt there anymore??

    Each manager is associated with a folder. When you delete that manager, you delete everything inside that folder.

    In order to switch managers, the best way would not be to move everything from one associated folder to the next, but rename the folders to their respective one and move icons and other data into each folder then delete.

    To be sure, right before you delete, view information. If the data storage is relatively high, then deleting that manager will probably delete your games too.

    I think if u overwrite the old manager with the new one (instead of deleting it then installing the new manager) it does that for u. It may even ask u if u want to use folder "X" the first time u load the manager.

    I could be mistaken, but that's just my 2 cents.

    XFlak is right, if you use the same manager, the update just replaces the core files for the manager to run and overwrite the pre-updated one. Open Manager lets you use the OMAN folder or LAUN folder (if you used the original back up manager)
