Wow, that's quite a paradigm shift! All this time I thought it was moving the apps to my external sd card!

So when I change some options for where other things get stored, like pictures I take, to "storage card," is that also still the phone, or is that actually the SD card?

For apps, there are some apps that are designed to get around the partition and actually go onto the external microSD (some allow you to type in the extension, so that it follows the path to the external card). There are other apps that, when choosing the "SD" card, it still goes to the internal storage. Best way to find out is to use one of the File Exploring apps (e.g. Astro, File Manager, etc...) to see what apps actually back up info on the internal storage and what apps actually back up info on the external storage. Either that, or you can check by connecting your phone to a cpu and indicating the usb drive view (on the phone), so you can manipulate the information on your cpu.

FYI - I'm purely referring to "back-up" settings on the apps and/or pics, not actually moving the apps to the external SD.

Default Available memory

What ever happened to storing app data on sd cards? Install 3 gameloft games on top of every other app you have and the measly 11gb of internal storage you have is completely full. It sucks having another 64gb of space just sitting there unable to be used...

I've been using System Panel and ES File Explorer but can't seem to figure out exactly where these large files are at? Is there a certain setting I need to change so I can see the size of all the folders and files because its currently not being displayed? Or a better file manager?

Extended storage phone.

Set EStrongs File Explorer so that it comes up at the root directory, aka /

Your internal storage marked for default sd card use is /sdcard and if you have an actual sd card, it's at /sdcard/ext_sd aka /sdcard2.

If you want to root, you can swap the definition of the two.

Default Error: Storage Issue (But it isn't) ?

I keep getting an error that my SD card is full, for instance when I try to take a photo or when I try to save a photo.

What I don't understand is that my SD card shows that I have plenty of space?

I need help on what is going on here, because it is super annoying.

Thanks for all the help!

The message is really about the phone storage which is a virtual SD card. Thus why the actual SD card is listed as ext_sd. Just move some of the stuff to your actual SD card. You can control where the pictures are saved in the settings of your camera program. It can be set to Phone Storage (the virtual sdcard) or SD card which is ext_sd.

This.

I have no clue why they would name it that way, but when there is a phone that has both the internal storage and external micro sd slot/card, the phone storage is named SDCard. I wish it were just called phone storage, so as to not confuse people.

Based in those pics, the internal storage needs some cleanup.

Legacy. Every phone needs an sdcard, virtual or not, and the actual sd card here is optional.

Thanks for explaining that, EM. I seriously never understood why it was kept that way when Google changed the protocol, but now I know. Without your mentioning, that probably would puzzle me for a long time...lol
