    I do believe I should now be in a home for the bewildered.

    My Samsung Galaxy Ace - keeps telling to reduce the internal memory,
    I have an SD Card total space 28.98GB and I was adviced to partion this, that's when my troubles started.

    So I rooted my phone by watching the instructions on youtube, well I've got that app with half an Andriod and cross under it (SuperUser).

    So then I downloaded Link2SD to my SD Card and install it by watching YouTube.

    By now I was becoming somewhat of an expert so I thought, I soon came crashing to earth again.

    For now I installed to my SD Card recovery-clockwork galaxy.

    Here's where my problems start I go into recovery mode, and download recovery-clockwork galaxy from my SD Card to the phone and every time it tells the "Istallation has be aborted"

    I need HELP!!! What on earth have I missed, can some deserving sole help me solve this problem, and place me back onto the road of sanity.:thinking:

    If you'reading this "May I wish you and your Family a very Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.

    Where did you get the recovery file from??
    Is it made for S5830i specifically or some other model/variant?

    Many thanks for your prompt responce.

    I downloaded it free from the net "recovery-clockwork- galaxy" after viewing some Guy on You Tube partitioning his Galaxy Ace SD Card.

    Thanking you.

    I still don't know where you got it from, i for one never download anything until unless its attached along with a tutorial and reviews by other users.
    You should also know that yours is S5830i and not S5830, they are not the same device.

    Well done, I followed everything in your tutorial and its done the trick. I've been able to partion my SD Card. Just one fault everytime I restart my phone, link2sd instructs me to quick reboot, is this normal??

    I don't know about that, i never used link2sd for more than 2 days, i prefer scripts instead, setting up and managing all the apps through link2sd is a very messy business, i use cronmod int2ext+ script now, installed it 2 months ago, never had any problem since.
