    Get it checked out by whom? Where?
    I wiped it and haven't allowed the tablet to get more than half full and it has been fine...

    It actually has a little over 13 gb of use able space after space for the OS and what not is used up. It's common sense. No device that has an advertised am out of space actually has that amount of use able space. Yes you paid for 16 gb and you got just that, 16gb. You just can't use it all.

    I'd recommend sd maid pro, it's a paid app, but it's better

    Still nothing... I had a very bad feeling but after about a minute the tablet rebooted and the notifications that popped up were about 1/2 a day old... meaning that it notified me about a text message I received and read this morning...

    But nothing seems to be missing/awry... and I manually deleted the files Forever Gone created and I have made the app Forever Gone...

    Did I do anything wrong? Was I supposed to turn off Wifi before running it or something?

    Thanks...

    When I ran Forever Gone it flew through the first couple of gigs, but when the avialable space got to around 300-400mb it started going REAL SLOW. If my memory serves me, it stopped responding so I restarted it and it went through the process again this time with out issue. Now both of our N7s fly agian.

    Yep, one of the cheapest ways to speed up am old computer is to throw disk at it. More space means better memory paging performance, which improves performance in general.

    My tablet froze during Forever Gone too but I came back to it and it had restarted and finished. This is all normal.
    And although my device was running fine, it seems even faster now :-)

    I have a 16g N7 and used this to make my unit run faster and also opened up more storage. I do not have that much on my tablet for apps and data. I had 10985mb free space prior to running the app.....after using it.....my free space was about +200mb more and I did notice my N7 running a little smoother and slightly quicker in some instances. Fully worth trying this app if you dont even think you need it, could help out where you didnt think so.

    The only thing you did wrong was lack of patience. Forever gone writes 100MB files over the "free space". It takes awhile, and yes it slows down when you start getting down to 800, 600, 400 MB's. It takes it time, it does it's stuff and it will get there and when completed free up the space automatically. If it doesn't it will let you do it. Because you are writing to a file system that the OS uses for it's purposes, when you get down to "that limit" as stated above, Android (linux) will slow down and the Forever Gone app will eventually pick up again.

    Have some patience, yes scary if you've never done it or are new to Android, Linux, Unix of any flavor. These things are, after all tablets, not desktops, laptops, mid-range servers, mainframes etc. etc. etc.

    If my N7 was a mini-Super computer, I'd still want more. Probably all would, human nature.

    But for mobile devices, these things are "super" computers. At least until next week when something new comes out.
