ACER A500 SDCard/Internal Storage Problem ICS (Storage Low)
I have the ACER A500 and I noticed that I was running out of space, so I deleted apps cleared out cache and it wasn't making a difference. Finally I started adding up the values from the different groups such as apps, photos, music and others and it didn't add up. There is a know problem that GPS writes out text files and they build up in the directory /data/gps. Acer has a fix listed in their forums but I could not get the update.zip to work for me and was getting the same problems as others in the thread, click here to go to the community website for this issue.
I finally rooted my tablet and installed Superuser and Terminal software so I could manually delete these files.
# cd /data/gps
# rm gl-*.txt
It was able to regain about 8 gigs of space.
I am going to monitor the ACER site to see if they get the update.zip file working correctly.
Hopefully others will find this helpful.
