    So I have a Moto G2 and it has been saying that the device storage is nearly full, despite my stripping the number of apps down to the bare minimum, as well as moving nearly all music and pictures to an SD card. Out of the 8 gigs, it says that the Android OS takes up 2.49 gigs, and my internal storage takes up nearly all of the rest of the space. However, the amount of space being used by individual categories adds up to only about half of the 5.2 gigs it says it's using. Where did the rest of my storage go?

    Can you post screenshots of your Storage volumes.
    This guide will help :

    I am using a G1 on 5.1.1.
    The OS storage sounds about right, for 5.1.

    Thanks for registering and posting those shots.
    You weren't kidding.
    I can't figure that for you, I did a little search, but will find someone who will know. I had better past experience of Samsung storage anomalies.
    You have Android 6.0 and my current Motorola X Style is away getting a screen replaced.

    If you don't get another response here soon, please say Hi and ask again in the Android Central Community - Introductions forum where site ambassadors will also help.

    Welcome to Android Central.


    Added: have you tried exploring the storage from a pc via usb cable (swipe down to change USB options to MTP), or tapping Explore in Storage which iirc is a built in file explorer. I am also surprised the Marshmallow OS was kept that small, even on an 8gb device.
