So yesterday i was seeing how many apps i have installed and i noticed this...according to which only 248 MB is free. Which looks wrong to me too.

enter image description here

But that is not the case according to storage analyser app...and which i also think should be the case as i know what i am installing and keeping eye on space a certain app takes.

enter image description here

...you can also see it's the same thing (as storage analyser app) in my computer!

enter image description here

So how come..? is it a problem, and what can i do to fix it?

    Your SD card/external storage spaces are not your internal app storage. You're looking at two completely different storage areas. Comparing those numbers is meaningless. – eldarerathis Aug 5 '14 at 18:45
  • sdcard1 is internal storage no? – Muhammad Umer Aug 6 '14 at 0:28
  • It's not app storage. It's internal media storage, for music/pictures/etc. Apps are not installed to sdcard0 or sdcard1. – eldarerathis Aug 6 '14 at 3:12

Apps and their data are stored on a different partition (/data) from media (/sdcard0) and removable storage (/sdcard1). If you are rooted, you can use an app like Disk Usage to check what's taking up space on your internal memory.

  • and whats a difference between disk usage app and storage analyser. – Muhammad Umer Aug 6 '14 at 0:32
  • They have basically the same purpose, but you must understand that your phone storage is divided into lots of parts. The only part visible to you, as a normal user, is sdcard1. Apps are on a different partition (data). – aureljared Aug 6 '14 at 11:11
  • ok i found data folder that you said is internal storage. So yea that is almost full...so how can i increase this partition. – Muhammad Umer Aug 6 '14 at 21:26
  • @MuhammadUmer Check some of the questions under the insufficient-memory tag. Some good advice there already. – Chahk Aug 6 '14 at 22:41
