    Loss of power while installing game to WBFS

    I was installing games to my WBFS via usb loader gx when this part of town experienced an unexpected loss of power. What, if any, repercussions may exist due to this? The game does not show up in the list of games, however, surely there is data floating around within the wbfs. I'm lead to be believe that a successful reinstall will overwrite all of the previous attempts' data.
    On a similar note, one game I had been installing previously locked up at 97% and I was forced to power off the console. Has anybody experienced said happenings?

    I would guess that nothing should really be hurt. I would hook up to a pc, open wbfs manager, and look under your games list for the failed install when the power went off. There might be something there to delete like when a game doesn't go on right for one reason or another. Just try ripping it again.

    ditto what junkmail said

    the 97% thing happens i think its just "one of those things".

    Of the two instances this occurred, one appeared in wbfs manager with a 0kb size - deleted and reinstalled successfully. As for the other, I had not checked in wbfs manager but simply reinstalled and have not experienced any resulting difficulties. Afaik, the games are indexed within a wbfs by specific game title codes and thus no title can be installed twice. Thanks for the insight.

    edit: Thought I'd expand this thread as opposed to start a new one.
    On a somewhat similar note, I'm experiencing a rather annoying issue now regarding the installation of games via usbloader gx. More often than not, when i select the install game button there is no furtherance in the process, but usb loader returns/remains in it's main window. It's necessary for me to eject and reinsert the disc and follow the prompt to install a game brought upon by the disc detection. Also at times, I experience a stack dump when i follow said workaround procedure. This occurs in both the newest version, 938, and 937.
