Questions and Answers

How can I free up storage when the majority of the space (3.52 GB) is for Android OS?

Delete some of the apps you no longer use. You can also put pictures and videos either onto your computer or into your preferred cloud service and then delete them from your phone, as they take up a lot of your phone's storage space, as well.

Any time the internal memory of your Android is full, it will be slow. This will make working with your Smartphone very frustrating. The best way to free up memory is by deleting unnecessary Apps, or transferring them to your SD memory. You can also move or delete some of your songs, videos, and photos.

    Perform these steps for any other apps, until you've freed up enough internal memory to speed things up.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If you can't move or uninstall your apps, or if you don't have an SD memory card, you can free up your memory by deleting some songs, videos and photos, that you might not use or access much. For those who do have an SD card, you can also buy a larger memory card for your Android Smartphone, and then move apps and files over to it.

How do you format a phone's internal memory using a PC?

Even though I've formatted the internal memory of my phone, a pop-up reminder still says that I have to delete more files. Is there any virus or malware whatsoever that is affecting my phone's behavior? Due to that, I can't even read any messages sent via SMS, e-mail, etc.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

As applications are installed on the smartphone, they leave more trails that might not be erased properly; and formatting a smartphone is recommended from time to time. To format your smartphone, you may not even need a PC (in rare cases specific models may have only a specialized program that will format it). You can use a special key combination to enter the recovery menu and erase all internal memory on your smartphone, which is a good countermeasure for viruses as well. The other, less preferred option, is to erase the phone from the powered-up state. To read more on both methods, please take a look at our tutorial on how to preform a factory reset on an Android smartphone.

Can I delete Unknown mp3 files?

Using Windows I searched for *.mp3 files on the phone memory. There are a handful of small files which I have added as ringtones and 84MB of files (typically 1 MB each) which are hidden from the Android file manager. I can play them and I don't recognize them as being used by any app. I didn't put them there> I would dearly love to recover 84 MB which would stop updates of my very large Chinese dictionary from failing. Any ideas? have a good day. I have tried: I made a copy of all the files. I think it was caused by: Old files that Android no longer use
