Discrepancy in space use in HDL Helper GUI
I use HDL Dump Helper GUI to transfer games to my ps2 via ethernet. I recently tallied the sizes of each of my games in the list, which comes out to be 93GB. However, the used space number in the green bar is about 98.6GB used. There's about 5.6GB unaccounted for.
I looked up some information about this, and I found out that all partitions must be multiples of 128MB. Could it be that the discrepancy lies in wasted space due to the partition system? Say that a ps2 game is 1000MB, then the partition for that ps2 game must be 1024MB, which leads to 24MB of wasted space. Is this correct?
I have failed some game transfers in the past, but whenever I reconnect the GUI to the PS2, the used space does not increase at all from the failed transfer, which leads me to the believe that partitioning waste a lot of space.
