Hi, my internal storage (1 GB) is only 200 MB free. Someone say that I should clear the /data/lost+found folder, but i am not able to access /data with any file manager. How can I recover internal storage space? It happened after installing Android 2.3.5; i haven't much applications...

Thanks, Max

It seems to me that you are in error ...
1 - The internal memory is 2GB sd in U8800
2 - That you say have free memory is memory for rom, hence only 200Mb free ...
To see the 2GB you have to root the phone, and oh yes, after that Can you see in file manager real internal sd memory.

Excuse my bad writing

Hi Bruno, I don't think to be in error.

I can see a 1,56 GB memory (it is the /sdcard, the internal sd card, completely free)

I see a 4 GB memory (it is the /HWUserData, my external microsd card)

Finally there is a 1 GB memory, that is called "internal archive" and someone say that it is the /data (NAND or ROM)

I think I have to access /data to free some memory. I will try ES File Explorer with root permission... the I will update the post.

Thank you very much for you answer.

Ok, I understand.
Or you should have repartitioned the memory ... usually because the dimensions in which the U8800 are told ... Sd 2GB internal memory and a 600MB rom ... if you have 1Gb 1.5Gb and re-broke is because the memories!!
Or your phone is not the U8800 ... is another model (U8800 or U8800 PRO-51) that have 4GB of internal memory ... check behind the battery the actual model ...
Again excuse my bad writing! Google translator, lol

I say this from being another model, because the folder is HWUserData which is usually the internal memory ... to the micro sd is the external sdcard folder!!
