Major hosed - app partially partitioned my free storage!
« on: August 12, 2012, 10:41:32 PM »
Rooted 8GB N7.  I ran Root # All Data2SD app.  I hoped it would see my USB flash drive storage and make it available, so I told it to make 15000MB available.  It went merrily along to 4223MB, ran out of space, and aborted. 

My N7 looks outwardly ok, but I can't download apps.  I think the app created a partition, but failed to successfully mount it.

I get 3 menu options.  Create Storage says storage file sdcard/rappsd/storage already exists.  Mount and unmount leave me with a screen saying
File: /storage/sdcard0/rallsd/storage
Size: 8.0 KB of 4223 MB
Storage is not mounted. 

If I hook the N7 to my laptop, Windows Explorer sees 0 bytes free of internal storage.

Suggestions?

I learned my lesson.  It tied everything up in a file at the first location listed in my previous message.  I deleted the file, and solved the problem.    Thought about deleting my message, but I'll leave it as a good lesson for all of us.

I thought I'd just forked over $200 for a pretty paperweight.
