I have inadvertently found myself where my SGH-i747 running Cyanogenmod 4.4.2 nightly, presently 5/27/2014, shows storage as swapped. I.E. When I go to settings/storage I see 6GB external and 16 GB internal. This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I'm getting insufficient storage available even though over 10 GB are shown as available. When I go into a file Explorer there are multiple emulated paths with redundant files/folders.
I'm looking for a thread that will show me how to format both internal and external storage followed by a reinstall of the OS. I've looked for days and while I see plenty of instructions where the OS sees the storage properly, I'm not sure it will work in my environment.
Does the fact that my phone has the storage swapped make a difference when doing a full blown format and reinstall?
If I do need to follow a different set of steps because my storage is logically swapped, would you please point me in the right direction?
My end goal is to have the majority of my storage usable. I have very few apps installed, no pictures, etc... Yet I'm constantly getting out of storage errors. If there's a simpler way than to format the whole device, reinstall OS then restore apps and data, please point me to the right post.
Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
