I am having a serious issue.

On ES Explorer it shows:
I have a 64GB memory card in the phone and it has 18GB free
Internally of the 32GB I have 11GB free.

However, when I go to the Storage option it shows that I only have 1.25GB free on my internal card. This number goes to 200mb when Google Drive is installed:

Applicatiuons-2.71gb
Picutres,videos 424mb

Why is there such a massive discrepancy? Anyone have any idea how I can fix this? When I open Miscellaneous files it says System Memory 28GB then Whatsapp 749MB and Canon CW 650MB. Ok lets say I delete that but where is the other 28GB? See Misc files below. It has to be reading incorrectly in someway since my file apps show a lot more data free.



Google Drive shows 832mb used - in the app it says max cache size 50mb. All I can think is that I uploaded a 800mb video file to my drive from my phone and now its downloading this. I deleted the cache but when I start the drive back up it goes back to 800mb

found a .pictures folder but it had 1GB. After deleting available data stays the same.

I am really at a loss here, ES file explorer states I have 11GB free anyone?

How in the world is Miscellaneous files using 28GB!?!? Come on, its obviously being read incorrectly and causing me issues

What ROM are you on?

It seems that you have 30GB of "Misc files" - if you click on those you should get more details.

Also in the future make an effort and post in Q/A stuff that is exclusively about your problems.

Ok,

When I click Misc files it just shows System Memory 28.1GB, System Storage has to be reading this incorrectly somehow

What ROM? On my MJ7 (EU) when I click on Misc. files it shows a (very long) list by file extension / app.

I forgot to ask - do you have Safestrap on it?

I forgot to ask - do you have Safestrap on it?

Downloaded the analyzer app:
It shows everything basically free I can't figure this out, the only thing I can thing of is look at my 2 system partitions /system /data but those have a lot free too.


Phone is using Jelly Beans custom rom v5
Android Base 4.3
Baseband is: N900VVRUBMJE

Safestrap is on, how would I move the rom to the stock slot? Someone mentioned that if its not this is the cause of the issue... Doesn't make sense but is there a way to move it?

Maybe it is a good idea to ask in the Safestrap thread? And generally to ask in

http://forum.xda-developers.com/verizon-galaxy-note-3

instead of here, where is the international Note 3 forum? You know, SLIGHTLY different phones/partitions/bootloaders/software and so on
