    Default Quick Question - about /data/data

    Prerequisites:
    BobZhome's CM7.2 RC1
    Cronmod's INT2EXT+ script
    32gb sdcard, 1.5gb ext4 partition

    Is /data/data my "actual internal" space? Seems like it.

    That looks right.
    You get 178MB of internal storage space to start, but some of that is taken up by preinstalled apps.

    Preinstalled? The bloat apps should be on the real internal, and since I have INT2EXT+, I need to know which to look out for when it comes to space... Here's a better screenshot -

    I'd say that the 1.5gb is my ext app space (since the script) but there's that rule "100mb required for every 500mb of ext" so I'm a bit confused.

    /data/app holds the apk files and /data/data holds the data for those apps (and system apps too.)

    But the script said that instead of keeping app data where it's supposed to go, like Link2SD does, it puts it somewhere else... Or maybe I'm too confused.

    Remember it's INT2EXT+ by Cronmod.

    the screenshot shows the linked /data specs, it says 1.43Gb total. /data/data is part of /data. link2sd may just move /data/app to sd and leave the rest of the /data partition alone. I don't know.

    I guess I could test all this by doing before and after shots of installing some apps.

    Thanks anyway guys.
