Help I Lost 6 GB of internal storage!!!

Views: 391 Replies: 4
I bought the Moto X Pure with 16 GB and I decided to add a 32 gb micro sd card. I formatted it as internal storage and went to settings> storage and usb> internal storage. I pressed the 3 dot menu in the upper right corner to migrate data to my sd card. Around midway through the process i got a notification saying there was not enough storage. Now my phone is telling me that I've used 9.52 gb out of 9.61 gb internal memory used. It seems as if 6 gb were erased. Before I did this I had plenty of data left. My phone is also telling me that I cant even receive sms messages anymore and certain system functions wont work. Even basic stuff like the camera app have been removed. Can someone please help me?

Haven't heard of anything like this yet. Have you tried a cache clear in settings?

I would suggest a factory reset and see if that restored the memory. Be sure to backup what data you have before the reset. Let us know how that goes.

It appears that I have fixed it somehow. I migrated my data from the internal storage to the sd card, but that didn't help. Then I migrated it back to the internal memory and it still didn't fix it. But then I migrated the data AGAIN to the sd card and it seems to have worked. My camera app is back which is good. A couple of nonessential apps were removed, but other than that i believe I fixed it. Weird I've never had anything like this happen before.
