    i'm asking because my 32gb only has 23.5gb (is this the same with everyone?)
    i know that when dealing with memory the actual size is always smaller than the advertised size but 8.5gb seems like too much of a difference.

    I have 26.4 available out of 32 according to the device info but I have a lot of apps and some pics and about 2 or 3 gigs of music.

    ok let Me say this again total space = 23.5gb available space = 21.7gb used space = 1.67gb

    and the poster above you says his has 26gb available and he is using 2-3gb for music
    his tp has about 29gb total while mine has only 23.6gb

    I was hoping for a couple of people to hook up their tp's to computers and tell me what their total space is for 32gb touchpads

    these forum use to be a lot more helpful back in the day

    Here Ya go mate:

    At present my 32Gb TP reads via 'Properties' in Win XP:

    Capacity: 29,538,598,912 Bytes. 27.5Gb.

    Used Space: 14,895,431,680 Bytes. 13.8Gb.

    Free Space: 14,643,167,232 Bytes. 13.6Gb.

    And via a PC 'Scanner' app (which probably doesn't 'see' the webOS files?):

    Total: 28,170 MBytes.

    Used: 12,910 MBytes.

    Free: 15,260 MBytes.

    I have around 11Gb of Videos, 1-2Gb of Photos, 1Gb of 'downloads' and 300Mb of 'appdata' installed.

    TP 'Sys Inf' Reads:

    Memory: 32 GB

    Available: 13.6 GB

    I had OTA'd to 3.0.2 and subsequently 'Doctored' to 3.0.4

    So, according to how Mb's, Gb's, and B's are measured as existing or 'free'.. there appears to be between 3-4Gb always 'missing'?

    Bit like my own memory really!!

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply
    3-4gb missing sounds about right, problem is mine is missing 8.5gb's
    and i just doctored and gave it a full erase.

    i wonder why my Tp is missing so much space?

    I wonder if it's got a few copies of 'Android' or something 'stuck' in there as well then?
    Perhaps there is a partition already installed that is not being recognised?

    'Tailor' app from Preware might spot it?

    That, or an actual faulty mem-chip now...

    Are you reading those figs. off PC?

    i checked device info and used the pc to check the figs
    i also used swissknife to check if there was more than 1 partition, but it only shows 1

    So Device Info reads:

    Memory: 32Gb.

    Available: 23.5Gb.

    ? Hhmmm..?

    Try 'Tailor' as well then.

    OK.. Tailor is still in 'Alpha' V.0.3.0.. so if you are willing to 'test' it at your own risk etc etc.. and have 'read the rules'.

    Testing Feeds - WebOS Internals

    It should then show up under 'Available Applications'.

    I suppose 'Remove Android' (as a 'Linux App') might assist too.. if that is in fact the case?

    "Bon Chance!"
