    Can you tap "apps" and scroll thru them to see which one is huge?

    O/W there should be apps to show/clean sdcard usage.

    Do you see similar numbers in webOS?

    On my phone (no sdcard, similar to my TP), I have 5.86 gb under Misc, which would be recovery backups.

    Thanks for the reply. I do not see any app that is huge. What makes me wonder is the graph of the storage. If you look at it, the gray area is still somewhere 75% of the space which should be around 7gig. It doesn't match the figures as it was breakdown below.

    And yes, when i boot to webos, there's a notification that i only have that much space in my sd card.

    Sounds like the file system is corrupt or reporting the wrong amount of disk space. Trouble is that cm9 already checks the sdcard at boot up. You need an disk utility app that checks the sdcard.

    Might be easier to plug it into your computer and right-click on folders in the sdcard until you find one that's really big. Then uninstall/reinstall it.

    Highlight 10 folders, right-click on them.... properties.... should give the size. If it's not several gigs (clockworkmod or titaniumbackup might), highlight 10 more and check them.

    When you find the group that's big, then try smaller selections or individual folders.

    If you make backups in recovery, clockworkmod/backup will be quite big... several gigs. Same thing with titanium backup, esp if you have pro version that allows more than one backup per app. I'd check those folders first.
