    Hi all,

    I found this conversion for 3DS block file size:

    128kb = 1 block
    1mb = 8 blocks
    1gb = 8,192 blocks

    Helpful Equations:
    Blocks10248 = GB
    Blocks8 = MB
    Blocks128 = KB
    GBx1024x8 = Blocks
    MBx8 = Blocks
    KB128 = Blocks

    I'm making the assumption this is accurate, so that said if my 3DS says I have 547,111 free blocks then it would mean I have:

    547111 / 8192 = 66.79 GB of free space on my SD card?
