ps3 160gb only showing 124gb
ps3 160gb only showing 124gb –
Alright, this is all my fault, I did not read the part about deleting stuff before updating to kmeaw cfw, so now I have a folder somewhere wasting space. I had loaded up 3.41 OFW an E3 stick and open manager and loaded up two games, nba jam and red dead. I had not got it working as kmeaw and a bunch of personal crap got in the way. Anyways I recently did the kmeaw cfw upgrade and noticed that instead of the 146 or 149 original gb available, I had only 124. I looked all over using multiman and fxp ftp but can't seem to find the folder that contains these old games. Am I just blind or did the update perhaps create a separate partition and save all the old crap there. I did notive an hdd1 which I don't remember ever seeing but I don't just want to start indiscriminately deleting things. Any ideas?
P.S. I say it so you don't have to "flipping noobs"
I have a 320GB Slim that I was on 3.41 using a dongle on. I decided to upgrade to Kmeaw 3.55 after testing the CFW on a 120GB model I have. Since my 320GB's HD was a mess with numerous backup managers and improperly uninstalled games...I formatted my HD while on 3.41 before installing the CFW. After the format my 320GB HD was showing 268/298GB...pisses me off that a 320GB has only 268GB available..and actually not even register as a 320...but as 298GB!?!

This is the age old 1000 vs 1024 rounding issue. Hard drives are specied as 320 x10^9 bytes, but your PS3 is really talking about gibbibytes - ie 2^30.

So after doing the proper conversion, than subtracting the 10% or so system reserve, the actual hard drive space left for your use is close to what you report. If you want to make sure there is no left over data on a seperate partition, enter recovery mode and perform the steps necessary to format and reinstall the system software.
Not really...... there's ALREADY 23 threads discussing the EXACT same thing.
