My phone keeps telling me it's running out of System Space but when I go into settings and look at the storage settings it shows this.

Look for recovery backups in data-media.

Available internal storage too low. If it gets below 375ish you'll get that notification.

But look at how much available space the bar shows, and I added up all the "used" space and it's just under 8gb. Also no recovery backups :/

Did you hit refresh next to the bar graph or power cycle? The categories below that won't show all data on the internal sd, there are partitions and hidden files and folders that don't factor in to it, it'll never equal the 11.30 gigs.

And I know it won't be exactly equal, but it should be close right? Not many gbs off...

If you have games that store a lot of data, or download a bunch after install it won't show in the settings screen.You may find it in android-data or android-obb.
