I was able to free a ton of space by backing up my phone, performing a full reset ("Erase All Content and Settings"), and restoring the backup. This shrunk the discrepancy, but didn't completely eliminate it.

Your question is hard to answer because you don't mention the layer you are looking at. There at least four layers to consider: Hardware layer Usually the hardware consists of some administrative blocks, the "payload" blocks and some spare blocks. A hard drive contains some dozen and an SSD drive up to 15% of the official size of spare/reserve blocks. ...

I reset my iPhone and recover the backup data. My all installed apps and data are seemingly maintained well, but its storage usage became changed: about 7 GB of new free space came out. Also, it’s reported in the same way by both iTunes and iOS settings. I’m still not aware of the cause, but my problem was anyway solved.

I just had this same issue, with a 3GB discrepancy between what iTunes and my iPhone were showing as free space. After looking through "Manage Storage" I realized that iTunes doesn't see the space taken up by downloading music for offline listening through apps like Spotify, but your iPhone does. The numbers matched almost perfectly. Hope that helps.

The Retina MacBooks use a format of SSD that can be replaced, but Apple does not make it especially easy for simple replacement. Rather than the more familiar 2.5" HD format you might be familar with, the Retina use a newer blade style, somewhat similar to memory modules. Your best bet it to look over the ifixit guides, to see what is involved: ...

I do have a MacBook Pro 13" mid 2012 (no Retina), and I was able to upgrade both RAM (from 4GB to 16GB) and the drive (from the standard Hard Drive to Solid State Drive). I bought the items on Amazon and did it myself, it wasn't difficult at all (and there are tons of tutorials around the web). You must check how old is your Mac: in the newest models you ...

In the past, Apple doesn't upgrade any storage as a rule. This is HDD/SSD across the board. The only exceptions I've known are: If you have several internal bays and you buy the part (Think Mac Pro with 4 SATA bays or Xserve / Xserve RAID) You are paying for a service repair and they upgrade you for free to a larger drive. You don't ask for it, but Apple ...

According to the App Store, iMovie would require 641 MB of storage to download on my iPhone 5S (it should be about the same for a 5C), so yes, you have more than enough storage available. I'd try restarting the iPhone, accomplished by holding the power button and home button down together until you see the Apple logo appear. It is completely safe, I do it to ...

The Photos link on iCloud.com lets you look at the contents of your iCloud Photo Library which is an optional part of the new Photos app. If there are no photos in it, the most likely explanation is that you don't have iCloud Photo Library enabled on any of your devices. It does not give you access to photos stored in iCloud as part of an iOS device backup, ...

Your question is probably about 5 ones about how things work, so I'll address the elephant in the room. You need to decide how you want your photos to be stored. Where do you archive them for long term storage? How many can you afford to lose? When and how will you clean up all the photos that come from dozens of places so that your long term albums don't ...

Try Microsoft Essentials Photo Gallery The iPhone's folder hierarchy was never meant to be human-readable.

Go to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage (iCloud) and delete the backup for your old phone. The new phone will overwrite it own backups, just like the old phone did. It won't overwrite the backup for another device (I.e your old phone).

Yeah try using something like this: du /Application du /apps etc Just use the path to where the files/folders of interest are. To find them you can use the grep/find and cat the results into a txt file or simply pipe the results into your du. Depends on where all your files/folders of interest are.

First of you you cannot expand a RAID-1 (Mirror). If you want to make a larger RAID array you will have to back up the drives and recreate the RAID array in a different configuration. Once you have done that you have several configuration options with 4 disks. A quick google of types of RAID will show that... However if it were me I would set up the 4 3TB ...
