    Hi guys.

    Okay in my quest to get this bloody A3SD working right, I've been recomended an app called Quick System Info.

    I used this to check the amount of space on my A2SD partition of my SD Card. However I've noticed that as well as INTERNAL storage, there's something called SYSTEM storage. Which is considerably bigger than whats left of my internal space.

    Is the INTERNAL used for Multimedia files as this thread suggests?

    If so. How come my multimedia files have ended up there, when they've always been saved to my SD card.

    As for my constant ongoing issue with A2SD........don't ask LOL

    Andy.

    Internal storage is the storage on your phone, and system storage is your SD card. The system storage should be significantly bigger than internal.

    How can it be?

    I have a 16GIG card.

    4.37GIG Free
    AS2D Partition is 457MB with 254MB free

    System Storage is 250MB with 44.42MB free.

    I think System is for things like phone logs, messages, browser cache etc etc.

    Or System might just be the ROM, although that should be about 512MB not 250MB.
