I recently started getting the following notification:
Low on space: Phone storage space is getting low.
When I click on the notification, it takes me to the "All" applications screen listing how much space each application takes, and at the bottom it shows:
Internal storage: 296MB used, 452MB free
Why is it complaining about low space when only 1/3 of the internal storage has been used?
Edit: This is on an HTC Incredible both before and after the upgrade from Froyo to Gingerbread.
Edit 2: Looks like it's not just me:
Edit 3: Called Verizon about the issue (expecting to get the standard "do a factory reset"), but instead got escalated to Tier 2. The Tier 2 person looked up the issue in their system and said it was a known bug and that HTC is requesting all people with the bug not do a factory reset but instead call their tech support at 866-449-8358. I called them and they told me a fix (via OTA update) has been released and will upgrade the Android version to 4.08.605.2 (I currently have 4.06.605.3). Last night my phone did try to do another OTA update, but after restarting it complained that it could not install it due to low memory. The HTC rep told me to remove applications from the phone until the low memory warning went away, then dial the following number to force the phone to check for system updates (it normally only does it once a week or so):
I did this and still haven't received notification of a system update, but hopefully within a week I'll get pushed the new version...
Edit 4: Called again (both HTC and Verizon) to see if there was any other way to force the update again, but they told me all I could do is try a factory reset. A lot of people are running into this, more references:
