Exclamation [Q] Galaxy grand dose not show actual used space in internal memory

Hi developers, i hope you can help me in this problem.Some days ago I have rooted my galaxy grand and then also unroot it yesterday.but after inserting my large 16 gb sd card the rooting process dose not work any more. now I cannot also instal the SU user recovery.coz my phone dose not find the directory. then the problem of internal storage come. I have 4 gb of internal storage where I have got 3.6 gb( approx) but when i go to check the storage it shows 2.68 gb used and 1.96 gb free.And when i go into detail used space it only shows 1.65 gb and that is impossible. and the free amount remains fixed but the used amount is increasing with time. I have added two screen shot. Please some one help me

The 'miscellaneous files' section in storage will also be missing.( I can see it from your screen shots )
I often have the same problem.... go to settings -- app manager --find your stock gallery app in 'all apps' tab and clear its data ( it usually shows huge data being used ). This will solve your problems

I think it is a problem with the stock gallery app of grand..

Now I am in gennxt rom which is super smooth and completely bug free for me....

Hope it helps..

Don't forget the THANKS BUTTON..

Yes... I too had that experience when I was on stock rom...

The ' miscellaneous files' option comes and then vanishes .... I just can't view the miscellaneous files...

Later I found that you should select the 'miscellaneous files' option quickly before it vanishes , so as to view the files.....

Any way its still a bug on stock 4.2.2
Now I'm on Gennxt Rom ( same as stock rom without Samsung's bloatware apps )

Hope it helps you..
