Gmail app stores those previewed files under its data directory. The file location would be /data/data/com.google.android.gm/cache/<YOUR_EMAIL_ID>/<ATTACHMENT_NAME>. It seems that Gmail app doesn't have an in-built preview functionality so it gives the option to choose an installed app to open that file. If you did that then very likely, your ...

There are some memory hogging "other" files that require root access to delete. Try to root and download a root file explorer. I had some big .log files eating up gigabytes of space that weren't neccesary. Of course, once you have root access, be carfeul with what you delete.

I was able to resolve my problem. I found out that since I am restricted in accessing the app's personal storage I couldn't create the folder called "files" (from /data/data/appname/files), however, by directly writing the data to /data/data/appname/, I was able to access and upload the data. Hope this helps someone.

I ended up deleting the account and re-adding it. Space used by Email went from 2.7Gb to 16Mb. On my Moto X, running Android 4.4.4, Delete the account from System settings (i.e., not in the Email app) -- under Settings, in the "Accounts" section, find the account with the Email app's icon and name that matches the name in the app. Tap the account name, ...

There was an issue with my friend's phone Galaxy S2. Phone keeps logging and space was keep going low. So we solved issue with following; "Try punching in *#9900# on keypad and choose option 2 (Delete dumpstate/logcat)." I don't know if this is available on S4.

Basically every app will store some data. Hence it increases when number of applications get increased. To get some free space, do the following: Press your device's Menu button → select Settings (or System Settings) Tap Application Manager (or Apps) Tap the app icon Tap Clear Data\Cache. Next thing is to disable\delete the application that you ...

I you work at a company with an IT department that your device has been added to, you may need to consult with someone there as to how to handle this matter. Administrators have to be very particular about who has access to what on the company network.

Have you tried playing the video on the computer using VLC media player? If the video works all the way through, then use a video encoder or converter and convert/encode it to a different format and try playing the video on you phone. E.g. 001.mp4 -> Adobe Media encoder(You can try encoding it back to .mp4) -> Output file: 001.avi or 001.mp4 -> Put on ...

They say 8gb storage since it looks cool, the true applicable size is smaller (i have 32gb Nexus 5 yet i have only 27gb free storage according to file manager) - same goes with any Flash disk you buy. (if I am not wrong its because of the difference between GB and Gb) Anyway you have 1gb of internal storage which is part of the 8 gb space and is used for ...

To be able to download apps in the Play Store you will need at least 510mb available or 10% of the internal memory. Also depends on the size of the app you download. The Android OS uses the internal memory also to RAM purposes so is very relative the available space. Try to clear cache and data from GPStore, GPServices, Reset Apps Defaults and also remove ...

I had the same problems recently and cause was app2id. Uninstalling that and any other similar app might help. Also clean cache of play store and play services.

If you are using the Pro Version of Link2SD, then you will be able to move everything of the APP(Apk,Dex,Lib,Data and Cache) onto the second partition of the SD card.And thus you won't be using any internal memory. My Phone has 157mb internal memory and I have apps that would have allredy filled it installed on my phone without losing space.

Apps can/do store "persistent" data in /sdcard/Android/data, /sdcard/Android/obb and sometimes a mirror of that on /storage/extSdCard, and some apps tend to leave "corpses" in /data/data. a cache/dalvik cache wipe does not clear this. I definitely recommend SD Maid if you have a rooted device. I've been using it for centuries. It has functions available even ...

A lot of apps leave behind what I like to call junk files. There's an app called SD Maid which helps you clean up your F.S. (filesystem). There is also Ccleaner and System app remover, these apps will assist you in cleaning up cache and removing apps. You can also navigate to /sdcard/Android/data/ and remove any left over folders an app may have left ...

I would click "clear data" under the app manager settings for this app, but kepp in mind it will rest your app back to when you very first installed it E.g Your not logged in,changed back to default settings etc. I know this cant be your only solution, as I would hate to put everything back the way I like it but this can help reduce sizes. Alternative: Use ...

Firelord gave me the tools to answer my own question, by asking me to post a screenshot of DiskInfo, which I have now added below my question. Corrections (if any) to my answer here are welcome. Looking at my DiskInfo, according to my understanding of Linux, I'll make the following deductions: Android 5.0 (ignoring the SD card) consists of the following ...

Looking at my 32gb Nexus 5, it says that I have 26.8gb total space, so about 5gb sounds right. Samsung is also know for having a lot of bloatware on their OS which could be taking up some space. To my knowledge the only ways to free up space from the Samsung apps would require you to root your phone. In terms of running out of memory, it really depends how ...

Most Android phones come with only 16 or 32GB of internal memory, much of which is already taken up by the operating system and preloaded software. After you start adding your own apps, shooting photos, downloading movies and putting your music collection on the device, you risk running out space. To move apps to the microSD card using Android’s application ...

You're not approaching that quite right. Every time you boot your phone, start and app, flush your cache and so on you are rewriting real files time and again. PNG, TXT, XML, most commonly, and so on. Those overwritten and/or deleted files don't ever actually "disappear" from your device. Their link/reference is removed from your device's file allocation ...

Alright. From what I gather, it is in either a separate partition "SBL1" and/or it is in a file called sbl.bin. See here for the partition names/ locations. And, yes, it is chain fire's triangle away which is featured in the post, but it seems that the flash counter is stored there, among other things. So I downloaded a partition viewer, looked for, ...
