    Hi guys

    what is USB storage app? When I move an app to SD, it moves there rather than to SD. Is this part of the SD or something? Been trying to find the answer to this since ics update

    An example:

    App info

    World of goo

    Total. 34.48mb
    App. 412kb
    USB storage app 31.52mb
    Data. 2.56mb
    SD card. 0.00mb

    It appears that there is nothing on SD even though the app has been moved. Most of the app has moved to USB storage app, whatever that is?

    If it is a partition on the SD, that's cool. There doesn't seem to be info on this anywhere

    It's the .android_secure folder on your SD card.

    I have no SD card.
    SGS3.

    For one app (GOF2) it shows some data to be on the SD card (even if it does not exists) and some on the USB storage (no USB is connected, neither an SD card).
