After installing Cyanogenmod 12.1, my phone’s available and used space were not summing up properly. I was getting only 2.38 gb available though the used space was 5.56 GB out of 11.19 GB. After doing the math I realised I should be getting  5.63 GB space. To fix this below are the steps I performed.

  1. Install the app ‘DiskUsage‘ and scan your internal storage.
  2. In my case a folder from root directory was eating my space ‘Device/Data/Core’.

3. After giving root permissions to ES File Explorer I deleted all contents of Core and tadaaa I regained my space back.
