    I have the 32GB version and my memory got loaded with just zelda, splatoon and mario installed, but when i saw the memory usage on console's config, only 22gb was being used for this games, so where's the other 10gb?
    Is there a software that let's me check the console's NAND to see if there's no useless file occupying space?

    So? All apps installed on my Wii U are marked, the total is 22gb, so where's the others 10gb?

    some of it might be system usage, but that's a large chunk, so I don't know. I see other things installed over to the right. afaik, there's no app or anything to check the NAND for wasted space. it could be a shadow or ghost image of something that was deleted. look for an import folder. that's where a failed install would probably remain.

    about 22-25GB of space is usable on a 32GB Wii U

    The same thing that have on the 32gb version, there's on the 4gb one too, so, I rly doubt that, maybe 2 or 3gb may be used for the system itself, but 10gb I rly doubt of that

    Advertised storage numbers are different than what they actually are, because computers "count" differently.
    https://www.gbmb.org/gb-to-gib
    That website states that a computer will read 32GB as 29.80GiB. There's also some storage loss from formatting, as well as storage taken up by system files (about 4GB).

    mlc partition can be either 29.2 or 29.7GBs from what I remember depending on the chip that's used.

    It's not the computer's fault.

    I wouldn't worry about it. you're only option might be to reformat and see how much space is being used from nothing being on there.
