Hi, Guy

I just found that my SD internal storage get very small every day, I did not install lots of thing, but now it is only 1.5G.

So you need to check yours as well on your computer to see is it happen to you. It is very serious problem which will cause SD care data lost in the end.

This is how you can check.
1 Connect your One X USB to PC. Use USB storage mode.
2 In file manager click on your X'sd card name and mouse right click choose properties, it show how much data used and how much left. Write done the number.
3 Click you SD card icon and pop up another screen show all folders and data in SD card, use Ctrl+A to select them all, then mouse right click and choose properties to show the calculation for how much all those files storage.

The used space for step 2 and step 3 shall be almost same if it is correct. But on my One x it has 13G difference. Which means the 13G storage is nowhere on the SD card but system think they are. So you will loose those space.

Do your check and see how many of you has this problem.

I must admit I felt that my storeage was showing a considerable amount less than what I was expecting the other day...

I'll have to plug in my phone to cross reference the figures there agains't what the handset is saying...

Then again I did pump my HOX full of Vids, Movies and .CBZ files.

I had the same problem with the One X ported rom on Sensation, I kept loosing GB of memory for no reasons...till I found the bug: gallery cache!
There is a folder for the Gallery app that keep adding cache and eat huge amount of memory, just delete this folder and disable caching in gallery

I'd also like a bit more info about the gallery cache folder please.
My phone memory is definitely lower than it should be. I was going to format it, but if this folder is causing the problem... maybe i won't need to.

It's in the camera folder aka DCIM
The cache folder must be there if I remember well.

sorry no folder of such. And it is not folder issue I guess. This issue is now reported world wide in other place as well. It just break out. And it is not 1.29 issue I'm still on 1.28 rom. it is related to USB connection and also install program in SD card. I hope XDA dev can look into it seriously!
