Internal storage question
I was just looking through my Xoom's settings and decided to check out my storage settings and to my shock found that I only have 10 gigs free.
I have @ 2.5GB of media but the shocker was it says I have used almost 16GB (SIXTEEN!!!) on applications! I checked my installed apps and I have less than 100 apps the majority of which are under 1MB, a dozen or so at under 10MB, about 5 at under 20MB and only 3 apps that are using more than that (Maps, Earth, and Dungeon Defenders) at just over a gig together.
Since I'm only using less than 1.5GB what the heck is using up all the space?? Is Android using up even more space than a loaded install of Windows Vista??? I sure hope someone can shed some light on this.
What does your storage usage look like?Rockin' a Xoom and a Galaxy Nexus.

EDIT: Well, now it makes even less sense! Below is what the SDCard usage tool tells me and the numbers don't add up. Can anyone make sense of this?
Capacity: 29.48 GB
Used: 18.92 GB
Free: 10.56 GB
(folders in order of space used from highest to lowest)
Music: 1.16 GB
Android: 826.92 MB
Movies: 889.69 MB
glu: 119.65 MB
DCIM: 77.57 MB
eBooks: 54.30 MB
Download: 10.68 MB
Pulse: 1.79 MB
...and so on in descending order. All less than 1 MB.

I'm on the phone with VZW as I type this and they are checking to see if anyone there has encountered this before. At this point it's looking like they want to replace it under the worry-free warranty. Ahh well...here goes he reload game all over again with a new one.Rockin' a Xoom and a Galaxy Nexus.

I have rebooted and it's the same deal. If it wasn't inside the 2 weeks worry-free they would have had me do a hard reset and start from scratch all over again but since it is, they recommend I just swap it out for a new one and check each time I add an app until I find the one that is causing the false space reporting.Rockin' a Xoom and a Galaxy Nexus.
