i've Galaxy S2 and had big problem made me frustrated.
I'd LOW ON SPACE notification about internal phone storage although i've 5 GB free on USB storage and 6 GB on external SD card.
i've tried everything and move alot of programms from internal memory to SD card but in vain.
i'd one programm to check the space and it indicated that on internal storage all applications takes space of 347 MB, and system data is 1,528 MB which means that problem is not related to installed programm but became of system data.
previously i downloaded ICE CREAM SANDWICH version 2.3.6.

so please advise if this version is taken 1,528 MB or may be old version files still in internal memory and need to be clean, and if so, need to know how to clean it to solve this issue as i can't download or install any new programms also phone start hanging and became slower...

thanks for help

Are you rooted?

The reason i ask because the easiest way to solve all of you problems is to flash a custom ICS ROM

This could be caused by bad files, bad memory management' or most likely cache storage.

Go to the market and download a cache cleaner app. There are a dozen of the but a couple are root only so look carefully.

No i'm not rooted, and frankly i don't want to root my phone.
i've alot of cache cleaning but didin't solve the problem, even i tried to go through recovery menu to clean the cache but i can't open this menu.
i think my phone modle is the reason GT-I9100G.

Hello A_nawar2001,
I have got exactly the same problem with internal memory. Something probably a system application occupies ~1.5GB of memory. I have tried whatever you have tried to move applications to SD card, remove applications, Clear cache but nothing worked. By the way I have the same phone Galaxy S2 with the same software version 2.3.6. I am thinking of upgrading to version 4.0 something.
I was wondering if you managed to find a fix to this issue?
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks

you could connect your micro sd card to your windows pc and run chkdsk. it will then check if there are any errors, missing free space and so on, and will fix it for you.

Had tried everything! Nothing much can be done. Backup everything. Reset to factory default.
