SD Card and USB Storage Problems
I had a look around the forums and I don't see any threads that quite address my problem.
Essentially it seems as the data contents of my SD card are being double-counted in the USB storage of my phone.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S2, and a 32GB mirco SD card. In my Storage settings, under the SD Card Storage breakdown, I see that the SD card contains 8.69GB of data.
In my USB Storage breakdown, I apparently have 8.65 of "Misc." data categorized as "external_sd". When I take the card out, the "external_sd" category is gone, and my "Misc." data accounts for less than 5MB.
This same thing happens with my old 16GB SD card. It appears that that storage capacity of my phone is limited to the USB storage capacity. Has anyone experienced this issue, or can someone suggest how I can obtain the full glory that is 32GB of actual storage?
