Missing storage on Tesco Hudl 2


I have a Tesco Hudl 2 running Android 4.4.2. I have 9GB of total storage. But little free, despite not using much.

It shows a few GB in-use and 0.5GB free. The usage bar shows 80% available, but the table shows 581MB available. I used to have many apps installed, now there are fewer apps, and no room for more.

Total space 9.12GB
    Avalable 581MB
    Apps 1.58GB
    Pictures 12.46MB
    Audio 496kb, 
    Downloads 35.61MB, 
    Cached data 59.51MB
    Misc 113MB

That is less than 2GB in-use, and 9GB – 2GB = 7GB ≠ 0.5GB

I have no idea what has happened to the rest of the memory. Can you tell me how to fix, or diagnose?

Note: I have read wiki.


It has 16GB of internal storage, and according to various websites I should only see about 9GB of this. The storage tool shows about 9GB of total storage.

As requested, I ran Diskinfo & DiskUsage. DiskUsage shows System data of 6782 MiB, this appears to be the problem, but what is system data, and why so much?

Unable to download facebook app, though having a new SD card


I have an android gt9000 and I’m getting very frustrated because it won’t let me download the facebook app and it keeps saying insufficient storage available but I only have one app downloaded and I have a brand new SD card in it.

What happens if I uninstall the Google Settings app?


My android device frequently runs low on free memory space.

Can I delete the Google Settings app?

I want to install a game but it is not installing what should I do?

Enough space, downloads most of the app, then says not enough space


So I’m trying to install a little game called Xcom: Enemy Within, Google Play store downloads most of the App- I’d say 99% at least…then it gives me an error and says there’s not enough memory- I have about 338 MB left after that.

MORESO- I have an external mini SD card that I want to put this on but it won’t allow me to download directly to it.(Which- I must say is a dumb design oversight that…well the ability to do that has been around since Windows XP guys come on) so long-term it isn’t going to be that big of an issue. What can I do?

Galaxy Tab 3: How to get it to make use of the MicroSD card?


I’m kind of a noob when it comes to Android tablets. Anyway, I have a Galaxy Tab 3 with only 16GB built it, and of course I’ve hit the point where I’m running out of space. So I bought a 32GB MicroSD card, and assumed that would solve the problem. However, the tablet doesn’t seem to want to make use of it, especially when it comes to moving over apps and data that are already on the device. And I’m totally lost as to how to make it move at least some of that stuff over, as well as when it comes to setting it to use the card as the main storage on anything new from this point forward.

Can anyone explain to me just what I need to do to make this silly thing start using the card? I’ve totally hit the limit of the built-in 16GB, and don’t even have enough room left to save new photos, much less update apps or install new ones. No matter what I try to adjust in the settings, it just won’t make the switch, and I’m totally lost at this point.

Thanks…

HTC One model c525c, errors downloading from Play Store (491, 905, 915, and insufficient space)


Earlier this month I thought I had a virus so I factory reset my phone, which is rooted. I have been trying to reinstall my games, over 40 of them. Only have 6 of them now and my phone keeps telling me I have insufficient space, with all the apps and games that I can move to my 16 gig SD card, which only has less than one gig used on it.

I used to always get error 491 before factory reset. I have been getting 915 and most recently, 905. And the ones that do download to 100% lockup at 100% and won’t open. Plus I can’t even update. Please help me fix, especially the 915 latest error.

Can't download apps on Micromax A106 even though I have enough space


I am unable to download apps from the Play Store on my Micromax A106 even though I have space on the memory card and phone.

'Storage space is running low' while I have plenty of space remaining


I have an LG-D855 smartphone having 16 gigs of internal storage and running Android Kitkat 4.4. Although I have plenty of space remaining, the phone prompts Storage space is running low.. I had only installed an obb file of 1.2 gigs, which was of Fifa 14; and a few apps which sum up to around 3 gigs out of the total 16 gigs, yet the phone prompts so.

I deleted the obb files and it freed up around 8.5 GB of memory. Likewise, I guess 3 GB worth of apps filled up whole 16 GB. I have tried factory reset over and over, but in vain. Please help me.
