I keep getting a error saying cannot download not enough space. But according to my phone I have 429MB and the file I want downloaded is only 40.08MB. I don't want to use my SD card because the file will be deleted later but, it's needed now. What should I do?

  • How much storage does your phone have? – Zackary Nov 7 at 19:33

    Android considers a phone lacking storage if less than 10% of its total storage is free. Bring the value of stored materials off the trigger value of 10%. Plenty of questions here with answers about that to find. – wbogacz Nov 7 at 20:06
  • That 429 mb is not all for the tangible storage of the phone. Some of those are for cache, system storage etc – HEWhoDoesn'tKnow Nov 8 at 0:09

Do you have your permissions set for the app in which you are downloading from?! Sometimes you can't even save your settings if they can not write to the drive/device.
