> Fully-merged sets is the recommended way. Split sets are far too large.
Yes i know that split sets are less efficent in terms of space, but if you rebuild the full mame sets excluding the chd, the difference between split/merged is barely 3 gb and I was expecting a similar difference with hbmame.
It was like that up to version .196 (or it was .197?) the last full rebuilt i did, so i was expecting a result of 30gb more or less, while 75gb seem a bit weird
(ps sorry for the english )
