First, find a big directory with your data.
Run DiskUage, select 'Storage Card'. Note the directory pattern, i.e. Android/data/com.ea.deadspace_na
Menu -> add new entry
Menu -> data transfer assistant
Find the directory you used above.
Hit the disk to activate the mount. It should turn green.
Now rerun DiskUsage.
A) You should see a new 'disk' which corresponds to the directory you just moved.
B) Check 'Storage Card'. You probably need to 'Rescan'. You should have more memory now.
Now try playing the game or whatever you just moved.
You would not believe it but finding your post here has saved me hours of anguish! The one flaw I found in the Note II was the crazy storage problem. Now resolved. Thank you so much!
