The solution here is to use a link2SD script, but for doing that most Android phones need to be rooted. Also, the link2sd script must be compatible with the particular model of the phone.

May be Ashwin can add something to it.
Do not PM me for help. Just open a thread at the forum or use the search function.

SD Card would be the actual external storage, i.e, the memory card. The other two are just partitions in the built-in memory. 2gb for Device memory and the rest as USB. Not a very great idea from Samsung I suppose :p

Device memory is reserved for system apps, while the bigger partition will be for your media files. Try using a file manager and see if you can find the sdcard folder, it will probably be the same as the USB storage you are referring to.

Try installing free apps like App2sd or similar to see if you can move apps to the external storage. Not all apps can be moved though.

Yes I found the SD card folder and it seemed to be empty. All the stuffs were dumped into the USB memory.

According to him, he tried installing a similar app (forgot the name) but instead of moving it to the memory card all the apps were moved to the USB memory.

Another problem is after uninstalling few apps the free space remains the same.

Apps data may still be there- eating up space.

Root the phone and install a custom ROM. They usually have scripts which will take care of such issues Smile

Since its not my phone so rooting is not an option. I have decided to take a backup of everything and then reset it.
After that will install few apps and monitor the whole thing.

If the phone is not in warranty I highly recommend you root it. I rooted mine within a week of buying it, since there are ways to unroot devices :p
