Seems like /data is where it is all used... 26 out of 27G used... Currently 467M free... I just need to figure out with what :-)

@Izzy If you move you're comment to an answer I'll vote you up... I had 10 cores there, the android ls doesn't seem to understand -h so I am not sure which unit it is but if it is bytes (and not blocks) they are just some 250k each. Will try that SD Maid.

@Izzy thanks anyway... Of course, I thought more in the terms of being able to do "du -k|sort -n". You're right of course, it could be that it is partitioned and it is one of the mount points which is running low... If I root it to find out, can I get back to unrooted later or is it an one way street?

@Izzy as I said, it is not rooted... df wouldn't help me much, "du -h" would be great but as it is now, I can only see what the DiskView apps sees and it really doesn't add up. I must be something else, database waste, log files, cores, something. The question is how to find it and get rid of it :-)

@jlehenbauer No, I mounted it on my linux and windows boxes just to see if I could get a peek of what was in /data from there... Couldn't...

@Izzy Tanks but I've done that over and over while clearing data. Chrome is on top with 59.79MB (of which 13MB is on SD card and the rest is the app). I have some 30 apps installed, to get even close to 32Gigs I would need more than 500 in the size of Chrome... I don't use Google Play TV & Movies, all my movies are on the external MicroSD.

comment Is there a way to transmit all sound over wifi from my tablet to my pc?
I don't think you will be able to use the youtube app to get where you want to go but there are a quite a few DLNA (google it) based alternatives out there which could be what you are looking for. I am currently evaluating some of them but my objective is a little bit different and probably the toolset as well. Good luck, maybe someone else have good app suggestions.

comment Why do some devices ship without the Market installed?
Ok, I read it the other day but it looks like most wifi only Honeycomb tablets include Market so it has either changed or wasn't entirely true.

Yes it may, but as I understand it this was about Market and not about Android. Google, to my knowledge, still don't allow Market on devices lacking telephony hardware. Most of the vendors of such devices have their own Market (or people download the Market apk from elsewhere).

Actually, it also seems like they simply don't allow it for devices with only WiFi. I guess one reason could be that they at least used to use the sim card ID to figure out if you lived in a country where the payware part of market should be enabled and a few other things.
