Hi,recently i have reflashed cm 10.2 after trying out MIUI and now i have an issue with phone memory,i have a 16gb version of s4,before flashing cm10.2 i wiped data/cache and now it looks like 9.13gb total memory 1.2gb free space,and the is nothing on the phone memory apart from 35 apps,200mb taken by app cache,200mb downloads and that's it,where did the other 7gb go? and of course the massive 5gb taken by CyanogenMod?? any solutions or ideas how to fix this?

Hi Nik, I'm not overly familiar with Samsung devices so I keep my input to a minimum where they're the issue. I do know there is/was an issue with ClockwordMod recovery, a quote from the CM forum:
1There is a bug with CWM that causes your file system to get duplicated - sometimes more than once - when you flash 10.x over 10. Get the latest CWM or TWRP, factory reset, and install 10.2 clean.
Don't know if you're aware of this or not. Was the Miui rom stock based or CM based?

I have found a solution,please note the above method does not work,you must boot into recovery,go to mount and storage,reset system,cache,data and format SD card,then install from zip,you will have to drop zip on SD card again as it was formatted, so install from zip,flash gapps and voila,no duplication,everything sorted
