    Good Day everyone,

    Recently i just brought an SanDisk 32gb memory card for Xiaomi A1. I formatted as Internal Memory. Everything seems fine while I can see 2 storage in the storage settings.

    However, the problem is
    1. In file explorer, or USB connected to PC, it still showing the original internal shared storage which is 54g ++ ( Please note that Xiaomi A1 originally come with 64gb )

    2. I later migrate the data to the Sandisk memory card, then when i checked in file explorer or PC, it now shown 29gb++.

    where is my internal storage folder? i cannot use both of the storage to store my files?

    I tried to turn on the developer mode for the USB configuration, it always set at MTP but still either file explorer or PC also will always showing one storage path only no matter I migrate to either Internal Storage or SD card. Is there any one facing the same problem? is a bug? or else?

    Please Help. Thank you

    When you choose to make the SD card internal storage, it becomes part of internal storage - you no longer have "external storage"). (Technically, internal storage is normally mounted as sd0, external is mounted as sd1. When you make the card internal, it's just added on to sd0 - there's no sd1.)

    So there is only one storage path. But the internal storage is the total of the "internal storage" and the SD card.

    (SanDisk has a very good live help line at SanDisk microSD Tech Support - upper right.)

    Good Day Rukbat,

    Thanks for the reply. However i still confuse with the storage capacity. I understand what you delivered that the phone now should only appear 1 storage ( as it already combine the internal memory storage & Sd storage ) but by means, shouldn't it should display 83gb ++ ( 54g+29g+ ) when i connected to PC? But it now only showed 29gb, where's the 54gb?
    Currently , all my files had to only store in the 29gb+ storage which i felt is not fully utilized all the memory storage, is there anyway i can find back or store my files to the both of the storage? Or it is a bug? Thanks for answerring
