AnyTitle Deleter DB uses tona's AnyTitle Deleter and adds several features.

Its main purpose is to list all titles (such as channels, IOS, etc...) and allow the user to delete the ones he/she wants to get rid of.

Red Squirrel released AnyTitle Deleter MOD which used an external database to associate the cryptic title IDs (such as "HAXX") with a meaningful name (such as "Homebrew Channel"). AnyTitle Deleter DB uses his database format to achieve the same goal but adds support to read the title's name from the titles banner.bin or file which are stored internally in the Wii's NAND. Not all titles have a banner.bin or - actually only some channels and about half of all game saves have a banner.bin while files are found only in most channels, never in gamesaves - but combining the names on NAND with Red Squirrel's database allows the user to work with a broder scope of title names. This way cleaning up your Wii's internal storage is made easier and much faster than using Nintendo's gamesave and channel manager.

Feel free to leave bug reports on the Talk page.
