  30. Hi everyone, Mess up something, so Need help.
    I have Karbonn S9 rooted phone.
    The phone comes with 2 internal memory and 1sd card slot. Internal phone memory are: (1) 1 GB shows as internal storage (2) 16 GB – shows as Phone Storage. I can extend memory by using external sd card by upto 32 GB.
    Since Internal storage is just 1 GB, it’s always difficult to install new apps. Even I transfer apps to Phone Storage, it keep showing every now and than short of storage.
    So i decided to transfer phone storage to internal storage to increase memory size.
    What I did:
    1) Downloaded Link2SD and installed it. Done 🙂
    2) Reboot phone and started in recovery mode, done 🙂
    3) In Recovery Mode Clicked on – Advanced – Partition SD Card – 4096 MB – Swap 0 MB. Done.
    4) Rebooted Phone, good till now, no problem.
    5) Open Link2SD, no popup shows to Link new created partition to join with internal storage :'(
    6) Click on 3 Dots – Storage Info:
    a) Internal (10% Free) – Total 0.98 GB, Used: 0.88GB, Free: 102MB
    b) SD card (86% free) – Total 12.83 GB, Used: 1.69GB, Free: 11.14GB
    c) External SD – /storage/sdcard1
    d) SD Card 2nd Part. – No Found

    From the above, it is clear that Phone Storage is partition properly. Phone storage decreased from 16GB to 12 GB. One additional External SD is now showing but no memory is showing. In Phone File Manager, only Phone Storage of 12GB and Internal Storage of 1 GB is showing.

    IN PC:
    Before it used to show 2 Disks (1) 16 GB and (2) 1 GB. Now when I connected phone to PC. It shows 1 Disk with 12 GB and 2nd disk only name but no memory is showing. I also can’t select it.

    IN MINI PARTITION TOOL – Free Edition:
    Installed and check the memory info. it shows “H Drive : 12.83 GB, Used 1.69 GB, Free: 11.14 GB”

    I am sure that partition is done. Now I need to activate new partition but some way. Maybe formatting. Problem is new partition is visible only in Link2SD’s Storage Info and nowhere else.
