Deleting Partitions,Games –
Hi, just a quick question.
I use opl and my PC can only connect to my ps2 via LAN.
I want to remove a game from my HDD. The only way I can find to do that is through uLaunch HddManager.
But the opl user guide states:
So, can I remove games with uLaunch or is there a different method I must use?
Use caution not to remove partitions you didnt create!!! pp hdl partitions are your games and names with an underscore in front of them ( _mbr ) are system partitions, so do not remove these. You should ONLY remove partitions that have a + in front of them
as those are user partitions.
Thanks for your patience, and for OPL!

The problem is I am not sure if I should delete games through HddManager.

On a side note, I assume that to avoid fragmentation I'd have to treat my games like a stack (first-in , last-out) when deleting them?
Why,what's wrong with that?

Every time you delete a game from internal hdd,the game is actually still there but in form of fragmented space and when you install a new game,the new game is recorder over those fragments(it's the same principle like on PC hdd)
There is no way to delete a game from internal hdd and not to have fragments.
BTW Open PS2 Loader(OPL) can also delete games from the internal hdd.
Personally I've never deleted a game using the HddManager so I don't know how reliable he is but I don't have any problems with deleting "+' partitions with it
Ah, "Enable delete and rename operations", hadn't seen that.
