UlaunchELF can't see whole partition
UlaunchELF can't see whole partition –
I just made an 8 GB partition (8192 MB) and UlaunchELF see only 4 GB... what's wrong? is this a bug?

I made a 5GB partition and can handle all the files in it without problems.
Yeah it may. I only vaguely remember creating 8192MB and couldn't use the whole thing. I made all my partitions without sub partitions so 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1024MB, 2048, and 4096. I really didn't want to have a fragmented mess. I checked and rechecked the toc with hdl_dump to make sure those standard partitions don't have sub partitions.

I have a 10240MB partition, it's filled with DivX movies right now
I have not look through all the movies, but I can see them all and all are able to start playing.

Mind finding out how much free space LaunchELF says you have vs. how much space you have used? There could be an issue with how LaunchELF calculates the total space. I should have checked this out more thoroughly before but back then I wasn't a developer for LaunchELF. At the time, I wasn't going to dump 8 gigs worth of stuff to test my large temporary partition out. I took what some other developers said over at ps2dev at face value.

EP -> You want access to my PS2?
No, just some info on your large standard apa ps2 partition. Open the partition with launchELF and tell me how many MB's free. Also do a RevMark to select all the files/dirs and GetSize on the partition within launchELF. Adding the free space and the used file space should get in the ballpark of your actual 10240MB partition size. It's the possible discrepancy that I'm after.

This free space calculation problem should be fixed by uLaunchELF v3.72
Please test again, and report any failures ASAP.

It's great to hear that it was only a calculation problem. So the larger partition issues that have been discussed in other places were just problems with size calculations?
