7 Ways to Help to Increase Internal Storage Space of Android
Method 1: Delete unwanted apps and clean all the history and cache
Sometimes, as a matter of fact, users don't really need more storage, they just need to make better use of what they've got. No doubt, there are several apps users have no interest in using or have never used them. Therefore, if users don't use them, they can uninstall them. If they later find they need these apps, they can just download them again. (Any app users have paid for at Google Play will be available to any android device on which they are logged into their Google account.)
On the other hand, even some apps users keep in their devices will take up more space than they require. To be specific, as time goes by, every app on users’ phone fills space with cached files. At this time, users can clear these out to release more free space to store more data. Meanwhile, clearing app cache won't delete any important files on phone. If users want to completely clean cache from all their apps using android’s built-in settings, here's how:
Step 1: Click "Settings > Storage". After that, users will see total storage and other useful information related to Storage such as Used space, System memory, Cached data and Available space, etc. (as shown below)
Step 2: Click "Cached data". Then, a pop up will show up saying "This will clear cached data for all apps". At this time, users just tap "OK".
Note: if we accidentally cleared cache on SD card storage for smartphone, what should we do to recover deleted cache files including photos and apps data? Now, we can try the Best Free Android Data Recovery Software - MiniTool Mobile Recovery for Android Free 1.0 to recover cache files.
