Missing HDD space
I have a PS3 slim w/ a 640gb HDD installed and Rogero 4.41 cfw. I have recently started hitting the limit on HDD space. The XMB shows I have 65gb/596gb available. The prbolem is taht by my count I should have more. I've gone in through all the folders on HDD0 and totaled them up and it comes up to about 465gb used. I figure in 10-12gb used by the system and that puts me at 477gb. That should leave me w/ about 119gb free not 65gb right? Is there something else I'm missing here?
i think the system takes up 10% or more
The PS3 does reserve 10% for system use so you're looking at 60 gigs reserved for your system. Subtract that from 596 (your actual hard drive size - don't pay attention to what it said on the box) and your left with 536. Subtract your estimated usage of 465 and your left with 71 megs. This is estimated since you didn't give exact numbers but you're where you should be
