    Default Something just recently went wacky with storage.

    This just happened recently, when i go in and add up all the used storage (apps, pictures, downloads.....) i come up with roughly 6 Gb used space, i have a 16GB internal card and a 16Gb removable sd card. but it tells me i only have approx. 3 Gb of space available on the internal storage. which is way wrong should be about 10Gb. the external cards stats are correct ie. 15Gb total space, 5.7Gb available.

    So question is , is there an app thats taking control of all that space..7Gb worth.. or is the operating system gone stupid ???

    BTW i am on the lastest update Version 4.0.3
    kernal 2.6.39.4+

    and i'm not rooted.

    anybody else seeing the same thing/?

    Hey there....just noticed the same issue. All of a sudden all app updates failed to download and I got a low disk space warning. This just started out of the blue and it makes no sense.

    Read about this a year ago. I'm sure the solution was a factory reset

    Do you know what files are taking up this space?

    If you don't, download a Free File Explorer to find out

    Free from the Play Store:

    ES File Explorer File Manager https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Ryb2lkLnBvcCJd

    ASTRO File Manager / Browser https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...8uYXN0cm8iXQ..

    Please post what you files you find that are the largest so we can try to figure it out.

    Hope that helps


    Tip: Never rush to download any APP "Updates", read the feedback for a few days so that you can see if other people are having issues with it and/or changes to permissions or other you may not want! Always use a Back Up APP!

    May be related to temporary files and specifically GPS files. Root to gain access or factory reset to clear automatically.
