Hi,

This problem happened to me long time ago and I can't remember when this starts. When I go to Settings - > Storage -> All shows Calculating and nothing happened. It doesn't show the exact memory used.

Anyone can help me on this? I can't find solution

Possibly a bug then. Try another app to check storage for now. Also contact the devs of the ROM (or check its thread) to see if others have the same bug.

This is the reply from the dev of my ROM

Quote:

Mediascanner is started... it then reads all your storage to figure out what is apps, media, data, pictures etc etc...

If you have a large number of files or you have a "corrupt" media file somewhere (most likely a "bad" meta data tag)... mediascanner is likely freaking out and getting stuck...

Check the wakelocks/processes with BetterBatteryStats to confirm that it is mediascanner... if so. you'll need to try to isolate the "bad" media files and remove them or fix the meta data (most likely id3 tags in mp3s, but could be bad EXIF data in pictures)

Can you recommend app on how to fix this?
