    Welcome.

    I am polymerized tree sap and you are an inorganic adhesive, so whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off me, returns on its original trajectory and adheres to you.

    I did! Tried dialing *#9900# and clearing dump, nothing happened! And I am not willing to do a reset as I have important data, and not willing to gamble.... I recon there should be an app that checks for such hidden "ghost" data!

    Are you talking about the 16GB version? Also, are you including the OS?

    @Belodion may be right. Are you looking at the Storage screens. This is my 32gb Samsung Note 3 without an sd card.

    Ah. OK then. Needs looking in to. If you want to post a screenshot you can do so on the Tapatalk app or AC Forums version, or now also on the Android Central app.
    The Tapatalk uploading is better but you need a separate first time log in for Tapatalk.

    It's hard to know what you are counting but I remember something similar in an old thread and they were able to isolate the 5gb error there.
    I will be counting sheep shortly in London. If this get's missed on this new quickie Q&A forum, it would be worth starting a thread in: Android Central Lounge - Introductions (experienced moderators and ambassadors say hi there), and the S4 forums.
    But keep an eye here.
