    How do we use the internal 8gb of storage rather than the SD card?
    I've tried astro, it can see a folder called "Data" but can't write anything to it.
    It doesn't get mounted when you connect it to a computer.
    When I take pictures or videos it seems to store it to the SD card.

    So what the heck is internal storage used for? If its only for downloaded apps, then 8gb is a bit overkill. I barely could fill up the 256mb on the original droid with downloaded apps and I had nearly 90 apps installed on the original droid.

    After a day of using it, my internal storage shows 6.23gb available, although I have no idea what is stored on it. my SD card is almost full after copying all the media from my droid onto the X. The SD card was originally blank, after using it for a day it now has about a dozen strange folders that I didn't create.

    So anyone have any suggestions on how to take advantage of the internal storage?

    I do have a 32gb card coming, but I would still love to take advantage of the faster(?) internal storage.
