3) Move ALL media files (music, videos, etc) to your external SD card so that your internal storage remains clear.  You can do this by installing a file manager app (such as Astro or Solid Explorer). We hope this lesson has helped you resolve the low memory problems you were experiencing on your Android devices.
Exactly right Jeff, i cant understant why android give access to extend ram and inernal space unless you rooted it. Since the device memory is full, even though the USB memory isn’t, no apps can be downloaded and installed which can help me make a backup. Thank you so much this was so helpful =) Now I am able to text back to the family and friends and don’t have to delete any more of my Apps.
Man, I hated that “Phone storage space is getting low” error, especially considering I had an 8GB Micro SD card in my phone. Now that you have easily fixed one of the most annoying problems in Android myTouch 3g Slide history, maybe you should upload your music to the Cloud and use Amazon’s MP3 Streaming service. Another solution to this annoying error, is to upgrade that old droid phone you’ve got. Samsung Galaxy S2 has 16gb of internal storage out of which 14gb space is available, but not the entire available capacity is usable for apps installation. Backup all contents of your android phone including pictures, music, videos as this process will completely format your mobile. Put your phone into download mode by turning mobile off, then press volume down+home+power buttons together for few seconds. Now, go to phone storage settings and check if the device memory has increased and usb storage space adjusted accordingly. Can you please advice me on how to Setup this Connection as I do not understand what exactly should be done. I forgot to mention in the article that you should put your phone into download mode before connecting to computer.. Didnt work, tried it with new version of odin got the pass but still not increase in internal partition. Do you have exactly the same total storage capacity, system memory storage as the international version of galaxy s2? Oh, I just see that you forgot to mention in your article that when connecting the phone to flash with odin, you must be in Download-mode (Volume DOWN, PWR + HOME-Screen), not recovery-mode nor normal boot.
Well, I followed your instructions, chose the 4 GB pit and now my total storage has dropped by 4 GB and the App Storage has remained the same, i.e. However, a note of advice to all attempting this – it is critical that you take a BACKUP of your system to your micro-SD card using existing Recovery (CWM) module on your S2 prior to commencing this process. Update (27 May 2015): Since this article was originally written, it’s become much easier to free up space on your Android device. On some handsets (including my HTC Desire), the contacts list will inflate wildly over time, taking up dozens of megabytes more than it needs to. If you think yours is larger than it should be, you need to export all your contacts to an SD card, erase them from your phone, and re-import them.
You should have a SIM account, a Phone account, and another account for each Google account you’ve connected to your phone.
I recommend importing each Google account’s contacts back to the account they originally came from, but importing the SIM and Phone contacts to your main Google account. Android 2.2 (Froyo) lets you transfer applications from the internal phone storage to the SD card, and run them from there.
The problem is that although you can sort the list of applications by size, you can’t filter it to only show the ones that are currently in the phone storage. It’s a list of all applications installed on the phone storage that can be moved to the SD card. Use App 2 SD to move as much as you can, though be aware that applications on the SD card cannot be used (and home screen widgets will not be displayed) when your handset is plugged into a computer and acting as an external drive.
App 2 SD will also monitor all applications that you install and update, and notify you if they can be moved, so you don’t need to remember to check. It’s possible to force applications to allow moving even if the developer has enabled that ability.
Many applications have a cache for storing downloaded data so that it doesn’t need to be downloaded again. This is a very important point: applications that have been moved to the SD card may still take up some space in the phone storage. So, unfortunately, although fixing Contacts Storage bloat and moving applications to the SD card helps, the only real solution is to uninstall applications that take up space. If you’ve rooted, can’t you move a lot of otherwise un-moveable files (Flash Player, Dalvik caches, etc) on to the SD card?
Well i go to Manage Applications then i go to every app ive downloaded and click on clear data. Michael: I knew about some of these tips, but the advice on contacts storage was a god-send. After “adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2? and moving the apps to SD, the widget of the app (if any) will not be available anymore.
In my case at least, the step of backing up to SD and restoring Google contacts was not necessary and in fact caused all my contacts to be duplicated on the phone (but linked together automatically so they did not appear to be duplicated in the master names list) after the phone had re-synced from Google.
The one great tip here that has really helped was to use the superb DiskUsage app to find out which apps I thought were safely stowed away on SD were secretly taking up phone memory. After exporting the contacts to SD card, I have cleared the app of contacts storage and after that when i an going to delete the contacts then its showing an error. I found that deleting emails doesn’t actually delete them it just moves them to the trash folder.
From your Inbox, click the menu button (the far left hard key at the bottom of the phone) Click on folders.
My problem lies more in the apps that are factory installed that I NEVER, EVER use and I can’t uninstall them or move them to the SD card. On my phone I select the uninstall for the factory apps, it gives a warning that it will be restored to factory default, going ahead reduces the space taken by the apps. Thanks but on my Desire when i go to Export contacts it only exports the first contact event though the progress bar says they are all getting copied.
So, I’m tired of the temp fixes and am ready to start an Internet revolution until whomever is responsible will fix this!


Ok I imported my contacts to my SD card and now that I wanted to import them back into my phone, it says not enough phone storage so now i dont have any contacts.
I followed the Contacts Storage tip on my Incredible last night and now I am completely hosed. I ran into the first issue you talked about – not synching and having a large contact storage file. It doesn’t seem like the relative size of data should be a thing we have to deal with. It just seems STUPID that Android phone makers aren’t adding even 512mb of storage on their phones.
Great article and great tips, esp App 2 SD which I have just used and cleared shedloads of memory… cheers! One of the biggest problem i found with my samsung galaxy ace is when the applications which come installed autoupdate, this mean the original application space is still taken but now the new updates also take the new space, by removing all updates from apps originally installed in the phone i was able to recover lots of space.
For me this post was useful to explain where my space is still going after moving a lot of apps to the sd card. Another tip, there is a tool out there called appbrain, which allows you to filter what apps out on the market can be installed to sd card.
Due to the lack of internal space on android phones this makes all software packages that only install into internal memory useless for the majority of us, then again if such developers cant work out this simple problem then their software is probably badly designed in the first place.
My last phone was a nokia n900 with 32GB of internal space and now this crapy samsung galaxy ace has a miserable 180mb of internal space, shame nokia does not make android phones think they could out sell every other manufacturer out there.
Daily Telegraph’s Rick reccommended your page, a well explained read for an ignorant oldie like me who is trying out his first mobile. I downloaded the disk usage and it says that my system data is more than half of the phone’s internal space and it’s been growing each week what should I do? Storage isn't always an iconic piece of furniture, but the 3-tier storage system has become a classic for bathrooms— especially the tiny ones. Apple saw several of its consumers getting furious over the problem of ios 8 update consuming up most of the storage space in their iphone or ipads. Previously, ios 8 needed 1 Giga Bytes of space to download and further 5 plus Giga Bytes to install in an Apple device. Downloading the update over the wifi without connecting your device with itunes on your computer results in greater storage space taken in the phone memory. This cut in the software size by Apple is less because of the users’ disquietedness and more because of the lawsuit the company recently faced for wrongly advertising the actual storage space of their devices. According to reports Apple earns billions of dollars by selling iphones having lesser storage space than what is advertised.

We often hear from readers about all sorts of weird issues they come across on their Droid smartphones and tablets. The internal storage on most devices is usually fairly small, hence the need for additional storage via the external SD memory card.
I started obsessing about the Android platform as soon as I got my HTC EVO phone in mid-2010. But for those that don’t want to root their devices, this lesson is a less drastic approach to fix the problem. This is the beauty of something that looks simple, but in fact is more complex that your eye can see at a first glance. Unlike modern smartphones like Galaxy S4, our galaxy s2 has two internal partition, known as Device Memory(about 2gb) and USB Storage(the rest i.e. If storage is still not increased, flash stock Samsung firmware or custom ROM for your phone. Something strange, because I do not see any color today, but my laptop and the phone pop-up a notification on successful connection.
For some users, after completing the given steps and flashing android firmware again (stock Samsung or custom ROM) solves the issue..
These days it’s possible to take advantage of services such as Google Drive or Dropbox to relieve the strain on your SD card.
This is a healthy size — previously, it was taking up over 40MB, and growing every day. Select the top account and it’ll give you a dialog, asking if you really want to export it to your SD card. This way, those contacts will stay synchronised with your Google account, rather than being stuck on your SIM card or handset. My handset uses HTC Sync to keep my Facebook and Twitter friends in my contacts list, and it took quite some time to get everything up to date. Tap any icon, and it’ll take you to the Application info screen for that application, where you can move it to the SD card. My contacts storage is also only taking up 4mb right now, so that’s no hassle either. I knew that my contacts storage was causing the low disk space issues but didn’t know how to reduce the size of.
My contact storage went from 16mb to 4mb and my internal memory had been so low, I couldn’t even look at my texts! My Wildfire S is a fantastic handset, but 150MB for storage is proving to be somewhat tight! So, as long as your contacts are all under your Google account, simply clearing contact storage data is sufficient on its own without any loss of data as the sync will restore everything. I saved plenty of space by eliminating data-based apps (such as Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and eBay) whose functionality could be more or less replicated via their own web-based interfaces.
I had more than 85MB Contact Storage on my Desire, now exporting and importing back the contacts brought the Contact Storage down to 9,7MB. I couldn’t get the newest update to install due to not enough space, so I was trying everything.
I did the exporting, but now it keeps force closing contacts before I can do any importing. Can’t android phone makers put a $4 4gb chip in their phone instead of a puny 256mb or 512mb?


I need a help from you about restoring the contacts data which I have not saved anywhere and deleted (cleared mistakely).
Kartell Componibili unit designed by Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Kartell from ABC Home; $190. With a background in photography and interior design, her current creative obsessions include sewing, printmaking, and anything neon. This, left people using 16 GB iphone devices with no option but to delete apps, songs and stored videos. The difference may not look much but will certainly saves one enough space to keep important pictures and few other apps in your phone intact. Keeping this in mind it is still unclear what the last update’s size is, it’s surely lesser than past updates.
The suit claims that nearly a quarter of the storage space of the apple device is consumed up by ios software. It is still a decent thought to verify that you investigate any potential application issues in the event that you utilize the iphone 6 Plus for work, however this little upgrade is pretty safe to install. It’ll restore your phone back to the same settings you had when you first turned it on after you opened it out of the box.
Ever since then, I have been obsessed with learning all that I can about the Android OS and sharing that knowledge with my friends and family. I have moved ALL the apps to the SD Card, uninstalled most of them & cleaned the cache and leftover files using an app. The table is characterized by clean lines, functionality and diverse wood and lacquer finishes combinations between wenge stained oak and white lacquer. 6gb is more than enough for lots of apps installation, 8gb remaining for usb storage is also good for user files, data, etc. Ive loaded the file itself I9100_4GB.pit and now the phone sees 4GB of memory for applications but can not see the remaining memory approx. My USB storage was then reduced by 4GB (I assume to add to the 2GB already in internal storage and make it 6) but no increase to internal storage, still at 1.97. So I went into Recovery Mode (the PhilZ touch Recovery flashed using Odin) and did a Restore followed by a Reboot.
If you want a more advanced cloud storage solution, check out Hightail, which allows you to access and share important files on your Android devices or anywhere else. Less than about 15MB, and you can’t sync emails, Facebook statuses, calendar appointments, and so on. It will ask which account to add them to; this is where you need the notes you took earlier.
This is because, by default, DiskUsage shows the sum of the free memory on both the data partition and the cache partition of the phone storage.
This is different to the application cache partition that we just told DiskUsage to ignore.
It’s one of the system files that can only be moved from the phone storage if you have rooted.
I was kinda hoping I’d come across some magic bullet while researching the article, but no such luck.
But everytime I try to delete or edit my contacts, it will be a message showing ‘People has stopped unexpectedly. If I have half a GB available, I’m skeptical that deleting a handful of 5-10 MB applications is really going to make a difference in performance. My only observation is even if I have most of my Apps on my SD card, they still take almost the same amount of space on my internal memory (DiskUsage showed me this), so now I don’t know if moving Apps to SD card have any point at all. I followed the instructions to the letter about backing up my contacts to the vCard file and even backed it all up to my PC as well before clearing the data cache. Made of copper-plated steel with a grey-smoked glass top, this high-end locker style storage has three uneven tiered shelves. Additionally, adjoin the Living Room with a simple arrangement will balanced from the overpowering minimalist Home Design trend. The Android software has been known to have various different issues come up when it runs out of memory.
Tried connecting it to 3 different computers in order to backup the contacts, messages & photos.
You’ll see one of the rectangular boxes in ODIN turned yellow indicating that the program has detected your phone. Then the system re-booted normally and I found I was at the stage where I was not able to see the reduced internal storage. But I lost every contact that was saved into my phone over the last six-eight months and have no way to get them back now.
Desire of Living Room tone insert a huge amount of design in these interesting room and equipped with touch of sharp ideas. Samsung Kies is useless and the phone has not been detected by a mac or pc, even after changing the USB cable. USB Storage is the location where data (apps data like those of games), user files are stored. Fantastic Simple Living Area Low Level Storage Bench has designed with interesting idea, merge the inspiring and unique style can be generate interesting Living Room even though on a narrow space. So, even though you might have lots of internal storage space available, you might face storage issues during apps installation because you’ve just about 2gb available for apps.
This is a huge problem and now I basically have an updated paperweight because most of my contacts are gone!
The designer has take up this Amazing scheme of Fantastic Simple Living Area Low Level Storage Bench inspired by elegant Living Room design and Minimalist Living Room Furniture, displaying a Amazing tone. In this tutorial, we’ll see how we can increase device memory partition and decrease usb storage partition to accommodate as many apps as we want on our beloved Galaxy s2 smartphone. I recently copied the contents of my phone (both phone storage and SD Card) to the computer several times and still have the information in Windows.
Is there a way to locate where the contacts are stored in one of those folders and copy them back to the phone?
