Storage Space Warning Empty Storage Space Warning

Post by Trailrunner on Fri Nov 23, 2018 11:34 am

My Samsung Galaxy phone, a couple years old, keeps giving me the "Storage space running low" warning. I pared it down and the warning soon came back. I took it to Ana and she "fixed" it. After a couple months it came back and Ana "fixed" it again. I have deleted as much as possible, moved as much as I can over to the SD card, and now the warning is back. No music downloaded and all photos and one tiny video in Google cloud.

Is there ANYONE here that can work on these phones besides Ana, the TelCel store in the mall, or any other TelCel store? Ruben? Bennos? Anyone but TelCel? I'm thinking it is programmed to force me to buy a new phone.

Additionally, I have Chrome (big but efficient app), Opera, and Samsung Internet downloaded, do i need all three?

Total Space 8 gigs Available Space 444 mb

Arrrgghh. TIA

The app "updates" eat all the memory over time. You can go to each app and undo the updates, then turn off auto-updates.

Bob, that is exactly the right answer! Thanks mucho.

So, I should go to the apps that offer the option to "Uninstall Updates" and do so? No harm no foul?

Yep. You may find down the road the app doesn't function properly but by then just get a new phone.....
