Yes, it is possible.

Please check the size of your NAND, and check whether Tools > Check NAND reports any errors.

The Size of the Wii Folder in user folder is 398MB. Nand Check reports no errors

Correction 270MB not counting the SD.bin

  • Status changed from New to Questionable

If there are no blocks free or too many savefiles exist, this is actually accurate behavior. I can confirm this because I wrote into the "scratch" area of the NAND once when being an idiot and caused it to crash when accessing the savefile management.

looks like this mean an Override hack or some sort of enhancement needs to be made or a way to clear off files without needing the save manager
