Hello All,

I have a memory problem with my tablet. I've seen tons of similar posts, but not to the same level of severity as to what I'm seeing.

Acer Iconia
1.3 GHz
1 GB RAM
16 GB ROM
Running Marshmallow

After factoring the 6.32 GB storage needed for the OS, I have 9.68 GB of internal storage left. Of that, 9.59 is used up. ON WHAT????
Apps - 2.41 GB
Images - 269 MB
Videos - 8 KB
Audio - 40 KB
Other - 30.9 MB
Cached Data - 610 MB
In total, this works out to less than 3.5 GB. So what is taking up the other 6 GB? It's rendered the tablet almost unusable as I've deleted as many apps from internal as I can, and I can't make enough room to download apps to move to the SD card. Right now, I can't even download updates.

IS the 6 GB being taken up by the backup partition? If so, is there a way to move the backup to the SD?

All images, music files and any app that can be moved has been moved to the SD card from the get go. I have almost 20gb of storage left on my 32 GB SD card.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Or if someone can direct me a thread that already answers this issue.

Thanks!
