    Hi. I recently noticed that I had over a gig of photos and videos taking up my internal space on my phone. I thought this was weird since I had set this stuff to auto go to my external SD card. So I looked around on all my internal files for videos or photos and I can't find any. Where did this gig of space go?!

    Please advise,

    Hi, Thanks for your welcome and quick response.

    I had done what you said and I can't find anything that would be taking up the space. Is it possible that the space is available but it just hasn't registered with the phone yet?!

    All of my folders look like this. I'm not big on media.

    I swear I've looked in every folder. I don't know where else to look. These are the only photos I have when the SD card is removed too. Surely, not enough for a gig of space. Screenshot_2013-06-10-16-53-59.png

    I'm sure! lol. When I tap on the photos, they just take me to a larger image of the same photo. Basically a different view. I'm just at a loss...
