Default [Q] Question on Storage

Hi All,

So I purchased a Galaxy Tab 10.1 on Ebay and I noticed that they storage space shows 32. GB but there are "miscellaneous" files that total 18+ GB. The seller sold it as a 16GB.

My concern is what are those files and should I worry that its something on there that could be harmful to my data. I did a factory reset and it still showed it as 18+.

Could this be bloatware and if so does not normally add up to so much.


Thanks,


Unikeo

May be you should try some custom recovery and advanced wipe. Then some stable rom. Interesting tablet %)
