    Have you checked the storage volumes? Post the internal storage values (total, available application, available media)

    Settings -> Storage

    So you're still running gb??? Have you tried to pull ics yet? Or are you intentionally staying off of ics? Or am I seeing things? :blink:

    ^My first question now. Why no ICS? Assuming this isn't an actual storage issue, my first advice would be to update and possibly do a factory data reset.

    This could be a hardware issue, but I doubt.

    I believe you likely just have a lot of apps, data, and files on the internal memory. Use file explorer, or connect your device to your computer and use your computer's file explorer to check this. Ensure pictures are not being stored on internal memory, music, downloads, etc.

    Even your SD card has almost 20 GB on it. Do you have that much on there, e.g. LOTS of pictures, music, documents???? I don't claim to know how everyone uses their device, but even with hundreds of pictures and thousands of songs, I'm not using half of that.

    Using your file explorer see how much free space you have in /data or /data/app (assuming you are rooted), it is different than Internal Storage and the space is limited to 3GB I think.

    4000 songs is a lot of space. Consider putting them on your external sd card instead of the internal storage. Or use google play music to save them to "the cloud" (or whatever it's called, I don't use that).

    Try settings >storage.
    You should see the available space for applications, and on internal and external.
    I'm guessing one of those is getting full.

    I'm not sure at want point you should get that warning but if any show less than say, 250MB you should consider deleting something.

    Check that out and maybe post your results.

    I remember getting that not long ago and sure enough my internal storage was low.

    If your taking about internal and not application then A FRD won't help. This app

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.diskusage

    Should help you identify what's using your internal SD space.

    This shows memory used by applications this is the only memory that a FDR will help. If your internal SD is full it may be the backup app.

    Get the app I posted. If will show you graphically what is is using Your storage. In my case Appmonster, an app that backs up all apps and also older versions. It used several gig in back up.
    Once you know what is using your storage you can delete what you don't need.

    Of course you could also select to delete everything in a FDR and it will delete your personal stuff like pics and everything else.

    That would be like your phone came from the factory.
    You would get your contacts back when you log in to Google. Some of your apps would also be restored by Google.

    That would be quite drastic but if you don't have music or pictures or any other files you care about it would clean up your storage.

    FDR is in settings > privacy. Erase internal storage is an option. The only thing left will be what your phone came with, and your external SD.

    If you have updated your OS that will not be effected.

    You said you don't want to lose anything. If you have no pics music or videos what are you concerned about losing?
