    Is it because you have a lot of system files? Or the apps use things that you SSH into to get? Like sendfile, or Docs? Cuz those take up lots of space. Or it could be the 300 mb from the soft upgrade if you did that (Does anyone

    Do you have SSH capabilities?

    What are the apps you use?

    They might have an effect, or it just might be a bug.

    Try to reset all of your settings. That has done the trick for many people.

    Maybe, all of your notes and stuff are taking up space.

    I doubt that, as this is a relatively common problem and it happens suddenly, not after months of note buildup.
