Thoroughly confused by built-in file management/me
I've had this phone for 10 months, and still feel like a complete noob. I love Android, and I'm definitely tech-savvy, yet I gotta say the lack of consistency is proving frustrating.
I have ICS on my GS2-E4GT, and was notified this morning that I have 10 apps with updates available. When I try to run the updates, I am getting "Insufficient storage available."
So, I try to check my phone's available space. Here's where the confusion starts.
Going into the "My Files" app (which I assume to be the TouchWiz file manager), it lists the various files and folders under "/sdcard", and seems to list everything on my phone, regardless of where stuff is actually being stored.
On the other hand, when I go into System Settings/Storage, it tells me my "Device memory" is 1.97GB with only 205MB available, then "USB storage" has total space of 11.50GB with 6.82GB available, and "SD card" has total space of 14.83GB with 14.49GB available.
How exactly could I have all that available space, and yet "Insufficient storage available"? Why does "MyFiles" list everything under "/sdcard" when "SD card" appears to be completely empty?
I would like to move stuff off the main phone ("Device memory"?) storage so I can update my apps, but even that does not seem to be very intuitive.
