    Tell me what is in the wad folder. You won't want to delete everything if you have any custom channels, but a lot of it can be deleted. Also tell me what is in your apps folder.

    Make sure you keep nand.bin and keys.bin. You can move them to your computer, but MAKE SURE YOU DON'T LOSE THEM! If you get a full brick, those files can save your Wii.

    Yes, just make sure you always keep a copy of those files. If by some chance you lose them (accidental delete, a virus, file corruption, computer crashing, etc.), you just need to run Bootmii to make new ones.

    You should keep the following app folders:
    fceugx
    NeoGamma
    SGMX
    snes9xgx
    USBLoader
    wiimc

    Of those, you can delete NeoGamma if you don't play disc backups, snes9xgx if you don't play SNES roms, and fceugx if you don't play NES roms. The others I suggest you keep because, even if you don't use them now, you might find them useful in the future.

    Wow, nice catch.

    @OP: You need to make a new nand backup with bootmii, since your old one obviously failed.

    Nand.bin should be approximately 520MB.

    If the cIOSs on your Wii are still rev20b, you may want to consider upgrading to the latest d2x (v6, I believe). It has many improvements over rev 20b.

    I haven't had an SD card in my Wii for months. What do you use yours for?
