It could be great if somebody gives me some pointers to investigate this issue .

Which version are your testing? Original version or customized version?

Hi @JordanZhao Thanks for the response .
Its a customized version and I was able to find out the issue i.e the data was written in the location named /data/emmc2(utilizing internal memory) instead of /data/emmc (EMMC) .
But it was also observed that /data/emmc2 had files with size greater than 104 MB . Do you have any pointers on this ?

I saw the similar case reported in SF ticket, right?
If yes, we will continue to follow up there.

Yes . A SF ticket is raised on the same

Question:
The eMMC2 partition is not mounted to physical eMMC. As per your suggestion below customer is mounting the eMMC folder with the physical eMMC.

Also the mounting takes place from the /data directory in this case as the eMMC2 folder is not mounted to physical eMMC and is just a directory in the /data. It is seen that the size is around 350MB whereas the flash size of the WP7608 module is around 256MB.

Would like to understand how the file size greater than the memory size is created in the module? This stops the entire legato framework which can be restarted on deleting the eMMC2 directory.

Answer:
WP7 use UBIFS which support on-the-fly compression so it is possible the total written data is bigger that the actual flash space.
But the compression rate cannot guarantee as depends on the actual data written, i.e. more effective on text and repeat data.
