    ** this is fixed. Solution is to look at Settings /Device Management for avialable and used space. Samsung Files app shows used space not available space.

    Original question:

    How much free space did your Note8 unlocked come with? Mine has 17GB and I cannot find the OS and default apps are taking all of it. I looked in the default Samsung Files app but it does not show me how much GB the folder has in it (like Windows).

    Are there better alternatives?

    I did not check the available space (Android Noob) before using the Smart Sync from my iPhone.

    I moved all of the Music, Pics, and Videos folders to the SDcard so I those three are not filling it up.

    I had 330 messages transferred over - where can I see those to delete them - stock Samsung messages app?

    Thank you for your help.

    False alam. Android Noob here.

    The solution is the Samsung Files all shows what is taking the space out of 64GB NOT what what is left.

    Ihave 46GB left and 17GB used.

    I checked with the Settings / Device Maintenance and saw the numbers above.

    This is a great learning experience for those new to Android.
