    I have Samsung galaxy 3 Verizon.I'm using 2g SD card and i have most everything set to save to phones internal storage but it's telling me SD card storage is full. How do I see what's on there, and what is safe to delete?

    Welcome sunnydawn79!!
    You could plug the phone into the computer and navigate to the drive assigned to the device, then you can see the "phone" files and the "sd card" files.
    Or you can use a file manager app to navigate to the external sd card.
    Is your phone rooted at all or stock?

    Well, if you are still on stock, then you may have a file manager called, "My Files" or something like that.
    As far as rooting, what version are you on....4.3 or lower?

    I'm a little cloudy on the root process for 4.3 as that update included the Knox bootloader.
    I think you can root but cannot flash custom roms. (I could be wrong)
    I also think you can root with Kingo root.
    Like I said, I'm not totally sure on that :eek:

    Were you able to find your file manager app?
    If not, there are apps in the PlayStore for file managing such as ES File Explorer
    Or how about using your computer to navigate your sd card files?
