    Update: I was doing it wrong. You must move all the apps to the phone storage and then link them to the SD card with Link2SD, not copy them to the SD card. Doing this has given me about 45MB of space on the internal memory which should be enough.

    I've got a Samsung Galaxy Y with about 200 MB of internal storage.

    As it keeps filling up I've tried to create a partition on the SD card and move some apps over to it. Even after doing this I've still only got about 21MB free and keep getting the 'out of space' warning, which means I can't receive messages or emails.

    After installing Link 2 SD and creating the partition on the SD card I was expecting to have more internal storage showing?

    This is what I did:
    Copied SD card content to my computer
    Changed to Root user
    Ran Clockwork Mod to format the SD card with a 1GB partition
    This formatted the SD card
    Used Link 2 SD to 'activate' the partition
    Copied the old contents back on to th SD card
    Copied over all the apps I could to the SD card

    When I go to applications > manage applications it still shows there only being 20 MB or so free of internal storage.

    Is it supposed to show the extra 1GB?

    If I go into Link 2 SD and look under Storage Info, there are five areas:
    Internal /data

    SD Card /mnt/sdcard

    SD Card 2nd Part. /data/sdext2

    System /system

    Cache /cache

    Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
