    Storage Breakdown

    Can anyone explain the partitioning of space with the Bionic please?

    Phone internal memory is as follows.

    Phone memory 8Gig, SD memory is also on the phone and it's 8G. They use the SD memory for media but many programs to move applications will move them there - don't do it they will vanish - keep apps on the phone memory.

    Then there is the SD-ext 16 Gig memory which nothing goes to automatically which is the external SD card.

    It's annoying.

    Yes, it is annoying. Has Motorola stated why they partitioned?

    So, if I have this right:

    - 8G internal storage (reserved by the phone, like RAM working space).
    - 8G internal storage identified as SDCard (storage space we can access/use, some apps may store stuff here).
    - 16G external storage identified as SDCard-Ext (what we have come to expect as an external SD card).

    thx for this info. it was driving me crazy. i'm trying to change a lot of my apps setting (dolphin browser storage directory for example) to use the sdcard-ext.

    Minus some room for system apps I believe it's correct.

    Follow-up question...

    Then why under Settings>Running Services with "Running" tab selected, does my Bionic indicate:

    RAM:
    306MB Used
    420MB Free

    ?? That doesn't jive with what I wrote earlier this this thread when I was looking for clarification.

    My understanding is that it's actually:
    Internal phone storage: 4GB reserved for apps, 4GB reserved for system files, 8GB avail for files, media, etc.
    External microSD storage: 16GB (formatted size might be somewhat less) all avail for files, media, etc.
