How To Free Up Phone Memory On Your Android Phone (Beginner's Guide)

If you are an entry level or mid-range Android phone user, running out of phone memory is a major problem you encounter every day. I'm an Android user and I have a Moto E (1st Generation) phone. It gives only around 2 GB of internal memory for your use. That is a huge limitation when it comes to installing apps, because if I download and install a lot of applications, I will run out of memory very soon. And I'd say the best solution is to get another phone. But then you wouldn't be here, right?

This guide is meant to help people who have very limited technical knowledge.

Before you get started, make use of the option on your phone to move media to SD Card. You can find it here Settings >> Storage >> Move Media. This way, your photos and videos saved in phone memory will be moved to corresponding SD Card folder.This applies only to the media in standard folders like DCIM, Videos, Photos, Pictures.. You have to move everything else manually. So, let's get started.

How To Fix Zero Disk Space Issue On Windows 7

If you are a Windows user, you might have encountered the issue of C drive running out of space at least once. There are several reasons why this happens. Most of the time, it'll be because of:

  • installing more and more programs into C drive, 
  • downloading large files into C drive (movies), or even 
  • viruses replicating and populating your drive and eating up drive space
  • ...and many other reasons.
Sometimes, you end up with zero disk space and cannot even uninstall programs to free up space!

Now, we know C drive is where the operating system, ie, Windows is installed. So a part of C drive memory has to be free always, because Windows by default uses a part of C drive memory as virtual memory. When you run a lot of programs, RAM is not enough sometimes and thus a part of the hard disk space is used along with RAM and it is called virtual memory. Thus if C drive is full, no virtual memory is available and computer hangs. So, you may not even be able to uninstall a program to free up space.
