Well, the best way to zero in on what you can get rid of to free up storage space is an app that maps out your storage use such as Disk Usage, a cleanup app such as SD Maid, or a file manager that can search for large files. But since you're facing the Catch-22 of needing to free up some storage before you can download any apps that help you free up ...

First I'll play dumb. According to this, a torrent file should have around 1000-1500 pieces. But let's take an especially poorly made torrent; a 4GB file (FAT32's maximum allocateable file size) split into 16kB pieces; that is ~250 000 pieces, so 250 000 write cycles. Common SD cards (and phone internal memories too) endure approximately 100 000 write ...

I updated my software and all my space came back, the problem was probably caused because I delayed the update.

The folders you are referring to are for multi-user purposes: /emulated/legacy is a symlink pointing to the internal SD folder of the "current user", while /emulated/0 is that folder for the owner (the number at the end will be incremented for additional users created thereafter, so e.g. if you created an additional user, his place would be /emulated/1, and ...

I am highly sure using torrent download on Android phone will wear out the phone's SD card, although it's not confirm-able because there is no direct evidence. Because I used to do BT downloads (about 1 years ago) using my phone, and my phone wears out two of my SD cards during that time period (even using dd_rescue can not read it's content so no evidence). ...

Try the fix permissions entry in your custom recovery menu. In most cases this fixes the problem.

If your device is rooted, another great option is to use ES File Explorer. it has a great root Explorer function that let's you view all installed apps at the system level. I've used this to delete apps on an amazon firetv that do not show up in the regular list. I'm all about using the terminal, but this is another option.

It would be good to check your internal partitioning. First of all I would recommend you to install a terminal emulator like: click if you are not used to the Android Debug Bridge(ADB).For detailed information about ADB see: click Write into this terminal: df and update your question with the output of this comment. Also the output of mount would be great ...

There a couple of places that are known to use space up, once you have eliminated all other space hogs. /.thumbnails safely delete them and then you can add an empty file and name it .nomedia and it won't store thumbnails anymore /data/log safely delete log files that accumulate after time /data/tombstones safely delete debugging logs that accumulate ...

Go to "Manage apps" and then select the "All" tab and find "Google Play Store". Tap on it and then press the "Uninstall updates" button. After that, go to the Play Store all the apps will be installed on your SD Card. This is what I did on my QMobile A110 (Android 4.2).

It looks like Android 4.4 does not support installing apps to SD Card. Your best bet is to root your phone, then install an app that will enable you write to the SD Card. Those steps will get you as far as writing to the SD Card. I don't have a device that I can test this on, but these steps look like they might work for having apps install to the SD card by ...

You can't move apps to SD card if the option is not available (as per the new rules of Google). You need to Root (which voids warranty) the device to be able to move apps from device memory to SD card and to remove default apps.
