Hello,

My internal storage on my phone is a bit messed up...

It has 8GB of internal storage. When I look at the Storage screen in settings, though, it says:

Apps: 1.16GB
Pictures, videos: 32.27MB
Audio: 292KB
Downloads: 148KB
Misc: 39.80MB
Available: 850MB

That... only adds up to about 2GB!? What's going on?

Thanks!

Apparently the RAZR I has 5GB usable, but the storage screen is saying that in total I only have access to about 2GB (that's from adding free and used), so it won't be that!

Are you using a custom ROM or stock?

2gb is the system partition. The missing gigs are mounted as sdcard0

Nope... If you want to understand android partitions better, check this out:

Read the part about internal memory. Btw its about the nexus but concept is the same.
