I've a Samsung Galaxy I5510 with Android 2.2 FroYo. It has about 160MB of internal storage. Right now I have only 16.79MB free (according to what Android Settings show) and I want to find out what is using more than 140MB. So I started looking for some apps which can provide some more info.
I'd already installed app2sd so I sum all the apps under "phone only" and under "movable". The don't get to 50MB. So I'm still missing about 90MB here. In the SD card app2sd shows 53MB.
I installed DiskUsage and when I select "Applications storage" it shows:
- 113.7MiB in apps
- 42.8MiB in System data
- 16.7MiB free.
But the problem is in those 113.7MiB, it is also including SD apps.
How can I really find out how many storage is using each app or info. so I can decide what to get rid of?
Also: The math doesn't close: 113.7MB in apps - 53MB in the sd + 42.8MB system data + 16.7MB free = 120,2MB, not 160!
I found this
and this answer
. After someone says he may have corrupted the FAT and suggest a factory reset.
- IF my problem is that the FAT is corrupted, is the factory reset the only way out?
- Will the factory reset make me lose my guarantee or may break my phone as rooting it?
- How can avoid losing contacts (including the linking of them), text messages, all the apps (installed in the phone or in the SD card) and the phone and apps settings?
