I would like to start my own personal conversation about this because either every other one I find has no conclusion or just falls off

I have low storage space is what my phone says and when I look at it.. Its tiny.

As IN

142 MB small ... The worst part is I have a 64gb SD card and that literally helps nothing in this situation
And then when I go into ES manager it says I have at least 3 gbs. but whats weird is Safestrap says 6 GB open for another rom if needed

Which I checked and I only have one active so thats good there

So where can I go to free up some space

PM would be GREAT or google hangouts or something

THANKS EVERYONE

Are you booted into a Safestrap slot (i.e. 3 Gb)? How many applications are you trying to install on top of the ROM?

You're mixing numbers up a bit, so it's hard to tell what you're seeing.
Safestrap is reporting 6 Gb free: that's the amount of internal storage that's available for new slots, which is only available to the stock rom.
When you build a slot using Safestrap, it's fixed in size (3 Gb) so if you load a lot of applications on top of your ROM, you can fill that slot up very quickly.

The ES File manager reporting 3 Gb - is that booted on the stock slot, or a custom ROM slot?

Have you tried the Disk Usage App ?


You can hunt down what's eating up your SdCard. Es has a SD Card Analyst as well.

That 15Gb of "Miscellaneous" files - do you have a bunch of ROM images on your internal memory? Or a bunch of nandoid backups?
Other than that, using the Disk Usage app that decaturbob mentioned is a good tool to use to discover where the storage is going.

Holy sh*t 15 gig of misc. Definitely use disk usage. You can keep clicking through until you see what that 15 gigs is made up of. I think ES let's you do that too.
