    Hey guys! So I'm having this problem that I'm hoping somebody might be able to help me with..... So you see, I have the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy Note 2 running slimrom, and I have just under a gig left of space? I looked at what I have saved, and I DO NOT have huge files that would take gigs of space on there, what's taking up all my memory? Any suggestions? Thanks guys, hope you know something I don't know ;)

    Do you have nandroids, roms, kernels stored on your internal memory? If so, this can take up space very quickly

    Nah, I have all of that in my external SD card. This makes no sense o.o On my computer it shows I have like 900 some MB left. I even cleared my data and cache in clockwork recovery and it's STILL in the red? :/

    Are you on a JB 4.3 version of the ROM? If so, did you format data, cache, dalvik, system and your internal SD prior to flashing? If not, then you likely have double the folders and files on your internal partition as the new partition structure of JB 4.3 introduced major change in that area. TO get rid of that problem you have to copy your data (pictures, sounds, music, etc. to your external card and then format as mentioned above and re-flash your ROM. You'll find afterwards that you have a lot more memory space then before.
