Hi guys,

I've installed the custom firmware on my daughters new tablet, but just noticed that is now only has 2Gb storage.

When I check Settings-Apps it shows internal storage 443MB in use, 61MB free

When looking at Settings-Storage it tells me it only has 2GB internal storage and 2GB is free

So where did the 4GB storage / 1GB RAM go? How to install the apps on the 2GB disk?

Google play etc is working fine.

Hello Victor,

There has been similar discussion (and explanations) in our ChildPad forum here: http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/archos-arnova-childpad/childpad-storage-what-shows-as-your-total-storage-2gbsurprised/

The disk space to install apps is limited to about 500 Mb with the default firmware, which hasn't been modified in our custom firmware. We made a separate one with the apps space doubled (so it's now 1 Gb) for those who need it:

Ah okay, I think I get it.

If I understand correctly we only have 512 MB available for the apps we download, and the rest is storage for photo's/videos.

Now only have to find a way to store all downloaded apps on the sd card.

Is there a maximum for the sd card to use? (8, 16, 32 GB?)
