    Rezound storage question

    Hi All.

    Just wondering if anyone could explain the difference between
    Phone storage
    And
    Internal storage
    On the Rezound as it shows in the
    SD and Phone Storage menu in Settings.

    Thanks

    Someone else may be able to go into more detail, but I'll give it a go. The internal storage is where things like apps are installed. The internal sdcard is where things like pictures and downloads go.

    SD Storage is obviously the removable SD card.

    The internal memory was partitioned into two parts:

    Phone storage: for media, pictures, music, movies, external app data etc...

    Internal storage: the smaller partition for the storing of the apps themselves along with contacts and other system data (primarily for apps)

    All storage is referred to as "SD" on the Rezound. This was kind of weird to me when I first got it. The external storage is usually called "External SD" or some variant.

    The Internal storage is divided up into a 10 gig partition (called just "SD") and a 3 gig partition...the 3 gig partition is where all your apps are stored by default. You cannot access this unless you are installing or uninstalling apps to it.

    You can still install apps to the other areas if you want to, just as with any Android phone. 3 gigs is a lot of space though....I cant imagine anyone would need more than that. Thats pretty roomy.

    (I came to this phone from a Droid 1...the Droid 1 has only 130 megs of app space or so on its internal storage, LOL)

    As did I, and I liked it so much I wasn't sure that I wanted to upgrade, but kept running out of space.

    That was one of the motivating factors...
    In addition to the bigger screen, blinding fast processor and 4G capabilities...
    I don't regret the move.
    Lol

    The main thing that would have dramatically increased the lifespan of the Droid 1 was RAM. That 256megs of RAM is what killed it.

    Every other problem could be solved (overclock the CPU to 1ghz easy, add a big SD card for apps) but there was no getting around that RAM problem. It was the only real flaw in the Droid 1's design IMO.

    Agreed. Especially if you used the OG for corporate mail as Touchdown alone was 30 meg. Once I went to Froyo and loaded TD, the redraws started and it became unusable. Too bad as otherwise it was awesome.

    This is what I'm not understanding.....so what is the "SD Card" storage for then, showing 15 GB? Using Astro to "move to SD card" some of the apps doesn't impact that number. Astro won't even show hardly any of the apps on SD....some are there, maybe 5 -6, but not the 30-40 I moved. I didn't have this issue with the Tbolt.

    I have my camera set to store pics on the SD card, set from within the camera app. I go to Astro, and the DCIM folder is empty.

    Poking around in SD and Phone Storage in Settings, and clicking on "Make More Space" under the SD Card storage, i can generate a list of the apps that I moved, so apparently it's Astro that can't make sense of the storage options on the Rezound. I still don't know where it's putting pictures.

    Just kind of confusing and disappointing (with Astro, not the Rezound) that my favorite file manager doesn't work right on it. Any other file managers working well for any of you?

    *edit: it was closer to around 80 apps i moved to the SD card

    Actually, Astro works just fine, you just aren't looking hard enough. Try this;

    Open Astro and Press "File Manager", then press the menu button. then select preferences. From here you can change your "Home Directory to ext_sd. You can also change your "Backup Directory" to ext_sd as well. - Problem solved.
