How to increase/delete internal data?

My phone is a ZTE V793 with Link2SD setup as an SD card with two partitions. How to increase/delete internal data? Warning message shows storage decreasing by 128MB. Already uninstalled a lot of apps.

Link2SD is an application that bypasses Android's requirement for applications to be installed on internal storage. Instead, with this application installed, other applications can be stored on the SD card, which is traditionally not allowed in Android. In addition, your ZTE V793 only has 512MB (half a gigabyte) of internal memory. With these two things in mind, and depending on your SD card's size, you are probably running out of room quickly for all of your applications, photos, videos, and other data, which is why you're getting this error message. Deleting a lot of your apps is only the beginning to clearing up your SD and internal storage; you will also have to remember that photos, videos, and other files like email and text messages take up a lot of internal (and external, if you set it up) storage, too. Note, however, that Android defaults picture, video, text, and email storage on your internal memory, so to clear that up, you will have to remove pictures, videos, texts, and emails. You can, however, back all of these up by logging into a Google account and allowing it to sync all of your data to your Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ accounts. Once they're backed up, delete them from your device to free up your internal storage.

Always shows this error message "Uninstall applications"?

Unable to receive message and WhatsApp, call registers, etc because of internal memory full space

Basically, your applications leave a part of themselves on the internal memory even if you move them to an SD card. When your phone's internal memory (usually, 256 MB - 4 GB) overflows, applications start to lose functionality; and you are unable to download anything. Before following our tutorial, check if you have a microSD card installed. To find out if you have an SD card, you may want to open the back cover and check the microSD slot on the side or under the battery. Then, follow the tutorial advice and see another article on freeing up internal storage memory.

I am trying to delete trash pictures off SD card for LG phone!

Did it once but cannot do it again to delete and free up storage space. I have tried: everything. I think it was caused by: I don't know

For the first method, you can take the microSD card out of the LG smartphone and place it into the card reader of your computer. Open File Explorer on your computer by pressing the Windows and "E" keys. Click the microSD drive. In the upper-right search window, type

ext:.gif OR ext:.bmp OR ext:.pcx OR ext:.jpg OR ext:.tiff OR ext:.jpeg OR ext:.tif

Then, you can select the files you need and right-click any selected file. Choose "Cut". Now, enter any folder on your PC and right-click the empty space on the right pane in File Explorer. Select "paste". The files will be moved. You can also just delete the files by pressing the "Delete" key.

The other method is installing any file manager like X-Plore and entering folders like "DCIM", "ANDRO", "Pictures", etc. Then, you can choose the files and delete them from any file manager.
