Deleting games from memory card not freeing up space?

2 replies 212 views Edited Feb 13, 2013

So I've been grabbing a bunch of stuff off PSN and needed to make room by deleting some stuff from the memory card. So I backed up stuff on my PC with Content Manager, deleting the applications and...it didn't actually free up any space. At all. Despite removing 1.5 GB of PSP games, it still says I only have 400 MB of space. I can't even redownload or put back on the games I just backed up because it insists I don't have the space, which isn't true.

 

What happened? How can I free up this space? (Without formatting the whole card, preferably.)

That should not be happening.  When you delete a game icon from the Home screen, the game an its data are deleted also, and the space should be reflected in the Settings app. Of course, you have to exit out of the System Information screen in order for it to update the free space.  If you just switch to the home screen, delete games, and then switch back to the System Information screen in the settings app; it won't update while the screen is displayed.
