comment my phone is always telling me storage full
Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! We will need much more information to give good recommendations here. Please edit your question and include at least: The Android version your device is running, information on free/used storage (Settings→Storage can help you on that, screenshots welcome). Also check and update the tags you've used to match your issue.

comment Nexus 7 (2012) no longer connecting via USB Mac OS X
Welcome to Android Enthusiasts, Esther! You might have missed an important point here: OP is not asking for "file transfer", but explicitly wants a USB connection (in this case, for debugging apps using ADB). While there's also the possibility of using "ADB via TCP" with a WiFi connection, that is at best a work-around, not solving the OPs USB issue.

comment Battery Issues-Moto E
How is this different from the other answer? And why should apps using more RAM be the reason? It's rather apps using more CPU, network, disk i/o, and wake-locks. RAM doesn't consume more battery whether it's used or free.

What about a reboot – have you tried that (you didn't explicitely state)? Also: Boot into recovery, and wipe the cache (possible even from stock recovery), maybe some information got stuck there.

comment Can I format android phone's internal storage with adb?
And for the next time remember to first check which file systems are supported by your device. NTFS is definetely NOT. Whether FAT will work on internal storage is another thing; today's devices rather use EXTFS internally (and FAT for the external cards). If you remember the file system used before, I strongly recommend reverting to that. For what possibilities exist, you need to provide more details: Device rootet (obviously yes), custom-recovery or stock?
