Question: I was checking the memory storage and found that under miscellaneous, Clockworkmod took up 4.5GB of memory. Is that normal? I’m operating on a HC 3.1 3G 10.1 Tab. with 16GB only. Now I have 4GB left. The rest of the other files are less than 50MB. Please advise.

Is it a backup that's taking up all that space? Do you have 4GB or so of data (music, photos, etc) on your device? – eldarerathis Sep 14 '11 at 13:19
Check your backups in /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup. It sounds like you have a lot of backups in there. – Ryan Conrad Sep 14 '11 at 16:00
@eldarerathis, Ryan, one of you should probably post that as an answer :) – Matthew Read Sep 14 '11 at 16:09

I would check your /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup folder and remove any old backups you have in there.

You can also remove them from within Rom Manager under Manage and Restore Backups. Then click on the older backups and select Delete from the menu.
