Default [Q] storage issues after safestrap to CWM

Preface:
My wife has the atrix HD. I lurked here for a bit, did safestrap and rom installs until BL unlock was relased then went that route with CWM. An issue I'm having now on her phone is the SD card is only recognized as having 5gb instead of 8. I reinstalled safestrap temporarily to see if I had an option of resizing the SD card but didn't seem so and then I was stuck in a boot loop. Reflashing a rom fixed that but I'm still stuck with the storage issue.

Any ideas? I thought about wiping the internal storage but there isn't an SD card so I'd be worried about trying to push files back over to flash a rom after that. Thanks.

You only have 5 because the stock ROM takes the rest try removing bloat and stuff or flashing an aosp ROM

I have custom rom installed (Carbon kk 1st Sep 2014), I only have 5gb of internal storage visible and out of that only 3gb user available on fresh install. How can I recover the remaining 3gb? i guess some other partition is taking up that extra 3gb but want to know how to recover it.
