    Some how my Note 2 Factory Reset itself. dont know how. I restored all my data and apps but for some reason it shows low internal memory. My internal memory is only using 1GB for apps and everything except Misc Files which i cant find out what it is. This is using ~5.5GB. Anyone have a Solution?

    My Phone restarted and then I noticed the whole setup wizard again and all my apps were gone. I have about 500mb free now and cant install anything. I tried installing the disk usage app but it fails.

    After doing some digging I found a lost + found folder that was around 5GB. After deleting the contents and rebooting. I went from 548MB Available to 5.5GB Available. No more low storage space warnings.
