Exclamation [Q] Stumped

I've had this phone for years and I'm always messing with it.. But now it's doing something I can't figure out how to fix. No matter how I wipe, reset, re-rom the phone, the problem is always there. The phone even in a fully wiped and reset mode will tell me the internal memory is full right away. Then, in settings - storage, it shows the the internal memory is nearly out and the usb is nearly empty. aren't these two suppose to be the same thing?? i feel like I'm asking a really stupid question but I'd really like to be rid of this problem..

Have you flashed any Kit Kat ROMs lately? Usually this problem is a result of the data/lost+found folder being bloated after running ART on any number of 4.4 ROMs. Wipes don't get rid of it. Delete it with a file explorer app of your choice and see if that solves the issue.

No worries, it's a simple fix. The lost+found folder contains a bunch of junk, and that's what's taking up all your space. My GS2 also had this problem.

adb root
adb shell
cd /data/
rm -rf lost+found

Done.
Nook Color running CM7 Mirage, no gapps, Nook Tweaks app @ 1.3GHz (+500MHz past stock 0.8GHz)
Nook Tablet running CM10.1.3, no gapps, BexusNv4 kernel @ 1.3GHz (+300MHz x2 past stock 1GHz)
SGS2 T-Mobile (unlocked) running HellyBean 4.2.2, no gapps, @ 1.72GHz (+~200MHz x2 past stock 1.51GHz)

^ This and also, check your Android folder with a file viewer app or simply by plugging it in to your computer, I had GTA SA installed but when I flashed a new rom, I never deleted the data folder where it contained everything about San Andreas.

It's ok, performance is good but it's the controls that pretty much ruin the game, If you have something like a controller plugged in to the S2, I don't think it would be a problem.
