    Hi,
    did some softmodding of a friend's virgin WII (3.3)
    Worked so far.

    Unfortunately, looking into the WII data manegement, i see only about 100 free nand blocks!!!
    (got a message ingame, that there was not enough room for save game!)
    Can't imagine, what filled the complete WII!
    Any ideas, how to find the big ressource hogs?!?

    He just has a bunch of saves, all small.
    WII fit channel, nintendo channel, WorldOfGoo... but thats sums it quite up. (cant remember the exact sizes, but they shouldnt use that much)

    I'm on 3.1, have dozens of saves and many more channels, but _still_ ~1000 free blocks!
    How come?

    Any ideas where to look for some issues?
    Is there some AnyTitleDeleter mod outside with displaying the used blocks?
    Or any other filesystem lister?!?

    Check saved games, some like SSBB takes a lot of space.

    Down the road around the corner
    You can remove the system channels with any title deleter i dont think it gives you thet much space though.........

    Thanks so far.
    will try to move some big channels to SD.
    (although i still do not know what takes so much space there, since virgin wii with no wiiware whatsoever)

    (Tried moving already some saves, but this renders them unuseable?!
    Games didn't seem to recognise them. Hope this will work with channels...
    Or will this only work on 4.x?!)

    That video that comes on new wiis about what you can do on the interwebs takes up an awful lot of room.

    Exact, with ATD.
    I've done this because they're, for me, useless. (so I didin't delete them for room)

    If you've played Pro Evolution Soccer on the console then the save files for that alone will take up close to 200 blocks if I remember correctly (2 separate files).

    I think the Opera Web browser is another space hog.
