Thank you! You're not saying anything about it so I assume the upgrade is relatively safe to do and will normally not wipe the tablet?

I think the thumbnails was one of the first things I deleted. Unfortunately it didn't eat up much of those missing 30G.

Thanks, I wasn't rooted so it wouldn't have helped me then. Good to know for the future though...

@AlEverett It sees the same files as the others. Whatever this is, it is something outside what a non-rooted device gives you access to.

It doesn't have much cache registered... I assumed it did something else, like unjar/unzip of the apk somewhere and then bailed out with an exception and forgot to clean it up when it failed installing. If it tries again and again and again it could add up. But I have no proofs, it just feels like the main suspect :-)

I somehow suspect it is Market/Google Play which is behind all this... With the now 500M free memory, the only time it falls back to some 200M is when Market has been out checking for updates and failed updating (because of low memory it claims, but I doubt 500M wouldn't be enough for an 3,5M update).

Thanks for all the good pointers... I didn't really get anywhere except closer to realizing a real backup and a factory reset is probably my best bet. Thanks again.

Not sure if it is the tombstones or not (because I don't know the unit)... If they are 250k there is no way the 10 of them eats up those 25+GB...
