    I'm a complete smartphone noob, so I apologize in advance.

    Today I downloaded a new game and it had to update/download new files. No biggie. Says it needed 112MB of data free.

    Here is how my storage is broken down:

    Application Space: 1.62GB

    Internal Storage:
    Total: 4.31GB
    Available Space: 0.90GB

    SD Card:
    Total: 7.50GB
    Available: 7.49GB

    Diskusage broken down:

    Data 1983mb
    Applications 204mb
    System data 123.5mb
    Free Space 1655mb

    /mnt/sdcard 4409mb
    gameloft 1375mb
    Android 1045
    Free space 735mb

    /mnt/sdcard-ext 7674mb
    my_pix 5.13mb
    Free Space 7668mb

    I really don't have many apps. My girlfriend, with the same phone and SD card size, has TONS of room and has nearly double the apps. I do have one or two large ones, but that's it. I have a whopping 6 photos on my phone, no music, and no videos.

    Where is all this data being stored? How the hell do I free it up? At this point I'm extremely frustrated with this phone. I really wish I would have went with the "other" smartphone on the market, none of my friends have any issues. We've had nothing BUT issues with our Droids.

    I've tried moving apps to the SD card, but magically I LOSE internal storage when doing this. I don't have the phone rooted, modded, etc in any way. What the hell is going on? I used two different apps to move stuff to the SD card but it gains me absolutely no data. It's like I have a HUGE folder that is hidden or something that is clogging up all my internal storage and not allowing me to update or download any files for new games.

    I also have it set to download any new media to the external SD card (even shows the 8GB card). But for some reason.....nothing......goes....there.....

    Welcome to the forums, Burks.

    Right away I can tell you that your internal storage is the most prominent culprit in the scenario. ;)

    You would probably benefit greatly by moving as much as you can to your SD card, via the application manager, then reboot.

    Be sure to always clear cache and data just prior to any change you make in app location, as this is a sort of "hidden" benefit with regard to storage space. ;)
