    Hi guys, well the thing is: i'm having problems to delete a corrupted update data from my USB hard drive, when i try to delete that data, it shows me the message: "The data could not be deleted".

    How could i solve this problem? i was thinking about use FTPiiU or something like that to delete the data, but i don't know if it is possible, please help.

    Download a demo or something from the e-shop. The issue will go away then.

    Yep. Just install anything from the eshop, and it should clear away.

    As far as updates go, you can also possibly try deleting it from the Download Management, but I'm not sure it'll fix the issue in the Data Menu. Do try to do so, though.

    Your mom's basement.
    Last resort would be to format it.

    Your mom's basement.
    Did the other method mentioned from that other person work out for you?

    Did you try downloading the update from Upload Management, then?

    Yes, but then I said that you could try just deleting the data in Download Management.

    Did you remember to backup the non-corrupted files, or at least the saves?

    Access the data with the ftp home brew app and just delete the files
