    12gb internal storage?

    I bought a 16GB Transformer, loving it, but when I go to settings, storage, it tells me that the internal storage is only 12GB.

    Am I looking in the wrong place or at the wrong thing?

    Your thoughts on this are appreciated

    The missing GB's are used by the OS and apps.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Check this thread for the answers to your question: http://www.transformerforums.com/for...highlight=1024

    Basically, 16 Gigs total internal (16,000,000 bytes) which equals about 14.90 GB. Then part of the TF storage is used to hold the OS files and pre-installed apps plus info on reflashing for a factory reset. That means you only have about 12 GB of internal memory as do the rest of us.

    Most devices are like this, my 16 GB iPhone has 14.0 GB free.
