Insufficient Storage Space on Device

I recently hooked up my phone to my computer to download the pictures from my phone. There were 95 pictures that I wanted to copy. Once I had made copies on my desktop I deleted the pictures from the picture folder on my phone. I then safely disconnected my phone from my computer. Now when I try to take a picture, even though there are only 3 pictures on the memory card it says that there is insufficient memory. I tried putting the pictures back on my phone and they were all listed as corrupt and I had to delete them. I have taken out the battery and memory card and put them back in but I still have the same problem. I don't know how to get that memory back.

Re: Insufficient Storage Space on Device

Hi there, one way you could try is to format your card. Backup everything from the memory card that you want to keep first (to your PC), connect like before, then go my computer -> right click on the memory card -> format. Once you've done this it should restore it to default - chris.

Why i do not have space on my phone even though i have deleted most of my picture downloads

Hi Thula

First you need to check each and every app whether it is installed on phone or sdcard. If they are installed on phone then you have to move it to your sdcard so that you can save a lot of storage space on your galaxy smartphone phone memory.
So how to move the apps from phone memory to SD card? Please follow the below given steps.
1. Go to Settings->More->Application manager. There tap on any app and tap "Move to SD card". That's it, every movable data will be moved to the SD card. Do this for all the apps and you will be able to save a lot of storage space on your Samsung Galaxy Smartphone.

Cannot download anything, insufficient space on device

Hi Izabel Maritz, I want to help you with your question, just answer each of the following to the best of your knowledge and follow the solutions. 1 Smartphone or not. 2 Removable media inserted? (Micro SD card) 3 Does the Removable media device show unused space? First and most importantly if you know a Micro SD card is installed with sufficient space to save your downloads then your phone settings are set to save downloads to 'local storage' and has filled to it's max. Often you can fix this easiest by removing the card for a few seconds and re-inserting it whilst the phone not 'locked'. Most phones will prompt you asking if saves should now be made to the SD card or to leave it at 'local storage' If you answer yes to each of the above numbered questions, it is likely the browser you are using is set to download to the incorrect destination. Try Solution A below. If answers no to questions 2 or 3 of the above question skip to Solution B. (Solution A) To check this open your browser and look for the settings menu. From here it will depend on the browser you are using, but you want to look for an option related to the following. 'download location' 'file destination' 'save to external media' If you have no success or need help finding the setting for your browser please provide me with browser name. If it is the cell phone provider browser that comes default on the phone then I will need the make and model of the phone. (Solution B) If no Micro SD card is installed to your phone I would recommend buying one they are inexpensive and provide a large amount of space for things on your phone. The average phone whether it is smartphone or not does not have much 'local storage' Other solutions for B, 1 Freeing space in your local storage. This means deleting things saved to the phone itself. Music, Pictures, Ringtones, Video's, Applications could be filling the phones local storage. 2 Freeing space on your 'external media' device. This means deleting things from your 'Micro SD card' (Note. If you plug a phone smart or not into a PC or laptop usb port you may move things rather than delete them. I can assist further with that as well.

My phone is net 10 and it says insufficient. space and won't let mesend or download. some apps

Apparently your phone storage is full.

You will need to remove some items, such as Apps, pictures or music you don't want, to free up some space. You can also first back the pictures or music up to a computer, if you want to save a copy, etc.

Some phones have the ability to put a MicroSD card into them, similar to the smaller one in this link:
Amazon com Kingston Digital 16 GB Class 4 microSDHC Flash Card with SD...
You will have to check the manual for your phone to see if it has this capability.

Why does my galaxy S1 say insufficient storage?

I saw " I was having a similar issue a couple weeks back. Though I had only used half my internal storage, I still couldn't copy anything :-/ I downloaded DiskUsage App and found that there is this LOST.DIR directory with about 6 GB in files. I read online about it and decided to delete it. Free space again! I don't know if this was your problem, but I didn't read anyone mention it. Seems that the phone makes these files when you connect to computer (in case there is a disconnect without "safe disconnect"). After a reboot, the LOST.DIR folder will come back but it'll stay empty." here...

Hope it helps.

Insufficient storage space error

You might want to make a backup on your computer/external hard-drive and then delete videos and photos. Applications also chew up a lot of space. When you're done, try downloading and installing the application again.

How to save a picture on a i68+ touch screen phone

Hi friend,

Could you tell me where are the pictures from that you want to save? From MMS? Bluetooth? Or you downloaded from computer? If you want to save the pictures, you'd better insert a memory card in your cell phone, for the storage space of your cell phone is limited.

If you want to save the pictures that from the MMS, you'd better check if your cell phone itself has much enough storage space, sometimes, your cell phone can only save a certain amount pictures,if there doesn't have enough storage space, you'd better delete some.Or may be you can save them to the cell phone or the memory card (May be you can set the storage space when you receive from others,that depends on your cell phone).

If you want to save the pictures from bluetooth, first, you may need to set it as the following:Bluetooth-Power on -Settings-FTP settings-Shared folder-Phone/Memory card(You'd better choose the one which has much more storage space)-Then choose the folder which you want to save the pictures in.

If you want to save the pictures that you downloaded from your computer, you may get much more information, you can visit

Have a good day!

Nokia 8800

Some nokia models will not allow you to use the camera feature
1. When the battery is very low.
2. When your selected camera picture storage target ( phone/memory card) is insufficient.
3. When you forgot to open the lens cover (if applicable)

Try resolving above these problems by
1. Charging your device
2. Delete some unwanted files to free up some space / change picture storage target in options

Then it should work fine.
