I keep getting warning that apps cannot be installed on their default location since there is too little space.

However, when I check in system there is a bunch of space, especially for small apps of a few MBs.

I tried moving some apps on SD card, but again I got a message that there is not space available.

Is there some system space occupied by unnecessary files which I can manually delete?

Or other way to solve this silly bug?

This is Galaxy S2 with official 4.1 OS. I have root access (rooted phone).

  • Please check if our insufficient-memory tag-wiki might help you on this. The error usually points to internal storage only, so non of your SD cards (neither internal nor external) should be the cause. – Izzy Nov 18 '13 at 12:39

Aside from Izzy's suggestions, I also find Clean Master helpful in cleaning unecessary files / cache. Check it out. :)

  • does it clean system folders as well (only for rooted devices)? – AnDroDroo Nov 19 '13 at 7:10
  • @AnDroDroo I am not sure, but maybe NO. – geffchang Nov 22 '13 at 8:58
