    Been having out of memory problems with my SGV. I have it rooted and Link2SD installed. I have it set to auto link all installs to the external SD. I have a 32gb SD partition off with about 10GB allocated to the phone. Even though EVERY app is set to go to the extSDCard, the internal 1.73gb card fills up.

    I just don't get why internal fills up. I browsed the internal card on my PC and all the folders there are empty but the card is still full. Another thing is about 19GB of the extSDCard is not viewable by the phone or on the PC but shows in Link2SD as free...

    Any tips?? Thanks!

    I just uninstalled all apps I don't necessarily need and now 718 Mb is available. WTF? If they were linked to the externalSD then why did the internal free up the space??

    Even though the apps themselves are linked to sd card the apps still store their data in the phones storage not to sdcard. This is why apps are still using phone storage. There is a method to have app data linked to the sdcard also. I'll try to find you a link..

    Like kwnott said, apps still store data and obb files to internal. That's why some ppl use externalsd2internalsd. It swaps swaps the internal and external. But it has its drawbacks as well. But that's why to have all app files completely on external SD it takes link2sd and external2 internalsd.

    I found my error. I had 2 Fat32 partitions on the ExtSD(32GB). When I shut down the phone and removed the SD card, I put it in my PC and repartitioned and formatted the second part as EXT4 per some Link2SD tutorials online I found. While doing this I lost ALL my apps and the phone was almost bricked. I had re download the Play Store APK to get everything back.

    The good news is I now have 818mb free on the internal! Yay me!

    Thanks for your tips fellas...
    :D
