I have a 32GB Iconia Tab A500 tablet running ICS. I have a low storage icon showing so I went to Settings > Storage to investigate. The calculations are as follows:
Total space: 27.37GB
The bar graph above these calculation indicates roughly 20% of the storage is used, yet I only have 257MB available. Any ideas on how to correct this and make the missing memory available?

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. We are forwarding this information to the proper department for investigation.

Same problem with my 16gb A500 running ICS. I've had to restore to factory once already. Another forum listed the problem as a GPS file leak problem, better described as:
"The bottom line is that when the GPS is used, the GPS driver for ICS 4.0.3 on the Acer a-series tablets apparently writes numerous gl-YYYY-MM-DD-HHMMSS.txt files into the /data/gps directory. The files are apparently not automatically deleted, and so over time will consume most of the internal storage space."
If this is in fact the problem when can we expect a patch to fix this seemly simple issue?

We will be releasing an application soon that will help resolve this issue. Once it is available I will post here with directions. Thank you for your patience.

What is the status of the patch necessary to fix the GPS memory drain and remove the excess files to restore the available free memory? I am on the edge of the painful process of a factory reset, but can hold off if a patch is to be released soon...
