There are a couple of options within the browser I didn't find until after searching for it, so I thought I would share it with the rest of the community in order to help out. -Everyone should clear the browser cache and previous history in order to save internal phone memory. To do this go to BROWSER press the MENU button and press MORE. There should be a list of things in there but what you should be interested in is the last item which is SETTINGS. From there in privacy settings there will be options to clear both cache and history. - Another little tip I wanted to share was viewing webpages in landscape mode without opening your keyboard. To do this simply press the MENU button from within the BROWSER and go down to FLIP ORIENTATION. You should realize tho by doing this you browser will continue to be in landscape the next time it's used. In order to return it to it's normal portrait mode just follow these steps once again. -There are a number of other things you can mess around with or find with the MENU button within the browser so just take a look at it yourself even if you don't want to do any of these tips.
For some reason my text didn't save when I first posted this, so I'll try again: My issue is that Google Play Music seems to save all cached music to the internal memory of the phone, and not the external SD card. Android can see this external SD card fine, and in fact saves any photos to it, so there is an issue with Google Play Music's visitbility of the SD card. with my HTC Desire S, Google Play Music cached to the external SD card no problem.
Why does my phone, sometimes become slow? I get it about the caches and stuffs but I already installed history cleaner, there should not be any problem. Now my phone memory is low, probably 1/3... is it because of surfing the internet? I always use dolphine browser hd, but I always delete the cache and history.
I frequently clean my history and cache using the 'options' menu from the browser ...by going to options > Cache operations > clear.. BUT what about Options > Security Options > Memory cleaning. My memory cleaning is currently set to "disabled." Do others recommend enabling it ??? I manually chose "clean now" from memory cleaning ( left click) and my Curve 8330 seems faster. Do you guys use this memory cleaning option, in addition to cleaning the cache from the options menu in the browser ??
I just received my first warning "my internal memory was getting low". I have the same number of apps I installed 5 months ago. But my internal memory has been steadily going down. I have cleared out browser cache, cookies, form data and any thing I could shut off or eliminate. I still only have 17 mb. Of memory left. My phone is getting sluggish too.
I have a problem with the phone memory of my E90 device. Although I have installed almost all applications in the memory card, the phone memory is rather low (10 MB available, 125 MB in use). What's more, it is progressively shrinking after browsing the Internet. In one week, I lost some 2 MB - I only saved some text-only pages from mobile web sites and I deleted the cache memory and the history before exiting. Any ideas on how to solve this?
I've just got a htc desire and would like to know where photos (taken using the camera) are saved to? i.e. sd card or internal phone memory. Also, when you download attachments where do they go? This is my first Android device. My previous devices have been windows mobile where i could see / choose where attachments, photos etc were saved to.
i am new to android and just got my xperia x10 just want to know how do i know what is saved to internal memory, phone comes with 1gb but mine is know showing 220mb free, i am sure android operating system is on it but how do i see what else is on internal memory
I just owned a N86.Its cool.It has Phone memory of 74 MB and Mass memory of 8GB and its great.but on by using apps or downloading updates or due to broken downloaded files its memory gets low. and it cannot be removed.So its necessory to have a application tool to remove unwanted dumped files from the memory as like clearing all cache cookies history in the nokia browser.
Can anyone help on transferring pictures saved in the internal memory to the microSD memory of my Motorola RZR V3t phone?
i have been trying for a while now to free up storage on my phone in order to solve the problem and have even inserted a new 4gb memory card into the phone, and have been unable to store apps to the sd card, to free up space on the internal memory of the phone. also i have been unable to direct downloading apps to be saved in the sd card instead of the phones memory.i have a funny feeling though that there is a fault within the phone itself.
I bought iball andi 5li android smart phone a few days back. The configuration of the phone is: 512mb ram 4gb internal 1.2ghz cortex a9 processor android 4.1.2 Although my device runs almost every app out there (including temple run, subway surfers etc.) but occasionally im facing problems. Problem occurs after 3-4 days of restarting the phone. When i restart and check the ram usage it says 350 mb (approx) as used and 150mb(approx) as free ram every app runs smoothly but as days pass by gradually the free ram starts decreasing down to 30 mb where all the apps (games and browsers) start crashing with a low memory message. then the conditions get worse after approx 2 hrs free ram is now 0.0 bytes and even the launcher,settings etc crash with a low memory message. The only solution out is to restart the phone. [used androids before and is quite aware of closing or killing apps but none is working] Already Tried: # removing apps from recent list # stopping apps from Setting>apps>running apps & cached apps as well # restoring to factory defaults # used ram freeing apps (no change on ram)
All my pictures save to the internal memory of the phone.How can change the settings to have pictures saved to the SD card?
Couple of questions regarding internal memory and the Android folders. I have over 125 apps on my phone, but I have hardly put a dent in my internal memory space. So my questions are: 1) Why is it helpful to move apps to SD if they take up such little space? 2) If I want to put *data* in internal memory (possible?), or in an Android local folder *not* on the SD card, where is the best place to put it?
I've started seeing some apps that offer to read/write data to the internal phone memory (like Super KO Boxing 2, which offers to save a whopping 52MB to the phone memory). I suppose this is because newer Android devices have a lot of internal storage, as opposed to my devices, which have very little. I would like to support internal storage in my app as well. But it's a bit difficult to implement a solution to something that I don't really know how it works. For example, do these newer devices allow users to upload files to the internal memory, like it's possible to do with the SD card? Can someone explain internal storage from an user perspective and recommend strategies for supporting read/write operations both for internal and external memory (ie: letting the user choose which memory to use at startup, like the Super KO Boxing 2 app)?
I have had my phone since Saturday, so not long at all, and already Im getting constant errors to say the phone memory is full. I have about 400k free.I have now changed my msg location to save to the Mass storage and deleted all previous messages from phone memory, and cleared the web cache. I have installed around 5 apps i think, like a game, the photo browser updated ovi maps and a twitter app. If you go into the File manager on the phone and goto Options--->Details---Memory while viewing the phone memory i get this break down: 73MB Memory in use 456kb Free Memory 411B Calendar 23KB Contacts 10KB Message 0B Images 0B Sound Files 1840KB Video Clips 31KB Documents 6650KB MIDP apps 8923KB SIS applications 56MB Other Files
I buy new tablet with android 4 and have 3 memory space : 1- Phone memory 2- Internal SD memory 3- External SD Memory I wonder if could I install my application in External SD Memory ? cause my phone and internal SD Memory is low
I have downloaded a file from HttpConnection using the FileOutputStream in android and now its being written in phone's internal memory on path as I found it in File Explorer /data/data/com.example.packagename/files/123.ics Now, I want to open & read the file content from phone's internal memory to UI. I tried to do it by using the FileInputStream, I have given just filename with extension to open it but I am not sure how to mention the file path for file in internal memory, as it forces the application to close.
Is anyone else experiencing problems downloading and running apps from the market due to low memory issues? Why did they only put 512MB of internal memory for app storage on this Epic when the AT&T galaxy version got 8GB of internal memory in addition to the 16GB micro Sd card??? My memory is full now, and without android 2.2 I can't move apps to the SD card. They should have provided all of their galaxy class phones with the 8GB internal memory.
I recently bought a SGH-J800.It was a nice phone with some pretty cool features.However, I encountered a problem when I was playing around with the Bluetooth.Whenever I receive some files from other cell phones via bluetooth, the files will automatically save to phone memory.I found this particularly irritating because the phone has only 18MB internal memory. I always receive "Phone memory full" message and have to move the files to the memory card manually.Is it possible to change the save path so that the file received via bluetooth can be transferred directly to memory card?
I have a desire, unlocked and debranded running 2.2, since installing it last Sunday I keep getting a low memory message. I have moved apps to sd, deleted seldom used apps that were on the internal memory and gone through and cleared the cache down on browser and apps. What else can I do to free up internal memory, is the only way to remove unwanted HTC apps eg. Stocks, tweet etc to root and run a custom Rom?
I am currently using stock Sense 2.2 rooted with ModInstallLocation but still have a lot of low memory errors on the phone from time to time as well as a general sluggishness of the phone. I have done a bit of research and it would appear that the AppstoSD+ would be ideal as it moves the Cache and also forces all apps to be installed to the Ext3 partition on my SD thus saving internal memory space but I still have a couple of questions. If I install a ROM that supports A2SD+ is there any way that I could move certain apps to the internal phone memory? I assume that a Titanium backup will reinstall all of the apps and data onto the new Ext3 partition rather than the internal memory? What is the "best" ROM to be using nowadays that has Sense? I am looking for something that doesnt hammer the battery too much but it must have the Sense widgets for wifi etc.
I have emptied my cache, cleared my history items, and reset Safari, but when I start typing a URL, previous sites still pop up.
I was experiencing slowdowns on applicationss accessing the SD card for storage and caching. Among them are browsers like Dolphin, applications like Twidroyd, and news applications like Huffington Post. It helped with some of the applications by setting their storage options to internal memory, but the best solution so far, without rooting your phone and adding some MODACO mod, is to go to Settings, go to Managing Applications, go to Running Services, look for something that mentions DRM, then kill it. Killing this does not harm the system, as I tested this already, and it speeds up access to applications that cache on the internal SD card. Of course, another way is to disable all SD access, and everything flies. But I find killing DRM services works well. DRM services is not part of the standard Android set, since I don't find this on the HTC phones, so killing it won't harm anything. Killing off Samsung's own slow ware such as Daily Briefings and the social Feeds widget may also help speed up the UI further, but on the other hand, these widgets can also be useful for some people.
Google saved search setting. Every time I go to the Google main site and tap on the blanks space to type in a search all my previous searches appear. In the past there was a "do not save searches" setting you could select in preferences, but it doesn't exist now. Now I have a option to turn web history off which I did but my previous search history's still appear when I try and make a new search. how to "not save search history" with chrome browser for android.
I am working on image manipulation application.Everything is working fine, image is manipulated and saved in a folder in my application and when I want to display manipulated image the browser diaplays the previous image which does not exists in the folder.When I clear the browser history and refreshed the page modified image is displayed.The previous image and new manipulated image have same name.The image name is saved in database so i cant modify it.
The dropdown in the browser navigation bar shows every site that I've been to . How do I clear it? Menu>more>History>Clear History says my history is cleared but when I go back to my browser and tap the navigation field it's all still there - every site I've visited for days! Ditto if I go to Menu>More>Settings and clear the forms, history, cache, and cookies. So how do I clear the browser navigation history?
Is there a faster way to delete the Download History on Android phones; instead of having to click each and every item in the history? Every thread I find dealing with deleting the Download History, has to do with deleting the normal browser history, not the Download History. So is there an easier way? Because I just spent 10 minutes deleting each and every item in my Download History and there has to be an easier way of doing this.
I have a problem with my Android phone. I already select an option to install apps into SD card but each installed apps still consume some free space in internal memory. Example: an app size 20 would take 2-5mb in internal memory. Unfortunately, my internal memory is only 222mb.
I have been having a major problem with my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone. The internal memory of the phone should be 11.25GB (even though it should be 16, but I know how these stuff actually work), Surly I have an extra external SD card, but that's not the problem. The internal memory keeps being filled with nothing.here is a picture to demonstrate the situation: As you can see the total space is 11.25 GB and if you count the applications, pictures, videos and miscellaneous files, they constitute no more than 2GB, which means that there should be no less than 9 GB left as available in the phone's internal memory, but as you can see I have got 5.84 GB available. How did that happen? I have rebooted the system yesterday when the internal memory was completely full (even though I have only 2GB filled). And I have a feeling that by tomorrow I will get the memory completely full without downloading or adding anything on the phone. And don't tell me I should clean cache or whatever that thing is, because I have already done that, and it's not working.
I'm trying to delete search history on the Google search app that come with Android. I have delete Web history on the Google website and also tried deleting the cache and app data. Previous results are still showing up in the app. How do I delete them completely?
Please could you help. I recently upgraded to a blackberry bold 9700.Since doing this, I have been experiencing problems accessing my BBM message history. On my old Blackberry curve, I could see all my bbm message history and I had a 1GB media card. Now I have a 2 GB media card, and when I ask for the history to be saved on the media card, it wipes all the history., If I set it to save on the device memory, then it saves the message for 2 days, then deletes it. Please could you tell me what to do in order to resolve this issue? I have tried battery pulls, deleting applications that I do not use, deleting all emails, deleting all sms. My current device memory is 95% free. I cannot work out what is goin gon and am desperate to be able to save my message history.
I have nokia N85. It's internal memory iz ~70Mb and SD Card 8GB. When i try to receive any file by bluetooth connection from other phone, whitch size iz larger than 70Mb. phone can't receive it. Is it possible to make phone saving files to SD Card instantly, not in phone internal memory first?
How long will a browser remember a "a:visited" link? Assuming the method isn't uniform across browsers - an answer for any individual browser (or as many as you know) Also, under which type of memory is it stored? "Web History"? Cache?
Many people think that the pictures taken from the phone camera are stored in internal storage and think they are losing internal memory because of taking picture bit the pictures you take is stored on sd card Images are stored insdcardDCIMcamera so dont worry take pictures instal link 2 sd and wipe all cache and dalvik-cache to free up 5-15mb
I'm currently owning a Malaysia production smartphone called ninetology Pearl mini i5350. This device is powered by android v2.3.5, kernel 220.127.116.11-perf, hardware version HW4000-E4B-V1.2. I had tried numerous ways to root my phone but unfortunately all failed. So far what I had tried: Super one click root - freeze at step#7 Poot.apk - downloaded ministro ii but nothing happened (no key for me to press update) srs root - auto root failed Unlock root - root failed Universal android root - root failed Gingerbreak - stuck at rooting process. I had tried many others but forgotten their names. My purpose of rooting is to increase my internal memory as the phone's internal memory has only 100+mb can be used. If there's any way for me to use sd card memory as my internal memory without rooting my phone that's great enough.
I have only 150mb of internal memory on my phone. These are some items that consume critical amounts of internal memory space. When I download an app, it seems I am downloading an install package. The installed app itself takes up additional space. I believe the install package persists on the internal memory, invisible to the average retail user, and takes up internal space even after the app is moved to the card. Ex: an anonymous app android market listed size- 3.51mb (this must be the download size of the installer) download and install on internal memory, size listed- 5.73mb move to SD card, size listed- 2mb move back to internal memory, size listed- 5.73mb Further thoughts: 1. The install package seems to remain on the internal memory even though the app moves to the card. 2. Beyond the above example, I went through each and every item listed in my settings - applications - storage use - All. I found 105 total items on internal memory and SD card all together. By adding up the listed "Total" size of each (yes, I went through each and every one), I arrived at approximately 109mb. The phone lists internal memory use at 135mb. I would expect the internal memory use to be LESS than 109mb because some of the apps are on the card. My assumption is that much of this extra internal storage is taken up by all of the installers sitting invisible on the internal memory. 3. Based on observing the change in the Internal Memory usage when I delete app "Data", I believe the app data is being written to the internal memory even if the app is on the SD card. Why isn't the install package deleted after the app is successfully installed? Is there an app for that?If I uninstall the app while it sits on internal memory, does it also delete the install package?If I uninstall the app without first moving it back to the internal memory, does it delete the uninstall package? How can I reclaim this internal memory space for actual use??
i just got myself a Galaxy S4 clone, and wanted to install san andreas on it. Problem is, the phone has only 1.2 GB of internal memory, while san andreas has around 2.3 gbs of data. Now in order to install the game, i gotta put the files in the 'obb' folder in the 'android' folder of the internal memory, but since the game is so large, i cant install it. I tried putting the game on an SD card and linking the SD card to the internal memory with Folder Mount (yes, my phone is rooted), but i couldn't seem to get it to work.
How can I increase internal memory of my Phone? I have a Samsung Galaxy Gio GT-S5660 with Android 2.3.6 version on it. My phone memory gets low when I install some apps on it. There's a way to extend the phone memory but I can't get any useful information related to that, which I can perform easily.
It doesn't seem that you can totally delete browsing history on the Epic. On the browser I pressed Menu, More, and deleted all browsing history, data, cache etc. So when I checked in history there wasn't any websites listed. BUT when in the browser you click on the back button, you still can get to the previously seen sites. So how can you totally delete your browsing history?
I'm noticing that customers of mine are having our OLD order forms cached in their browsers....we have updated our order forms a couple of times in the past year, and I would prefer them to use our newer forms...but I keep getting order requests via the same old forms...which makes me think that the old site content is getting cached on my customers' browsers.... What can I do to prevent (at least) my order forms from being cached inside people's browsers?
I have a blackberry curve (4.3 since sprint takes forever for their updates) and an 8gb memory card. Every time I try to save something it says there is not enough memory. An example - www.seeqpod.com/iphone on your BB browser. When you go to save a song, it tries to save to the internal memory and saves there isn't enough. Another is games.. on my old HTC Touch (windows mobile) any game or app I bought I could save to the memory card and it ran from there. When I buy a game for my Curve (such as from pocketgear.com) it doesn't even give me the option to save it to the memory card. Going to run out of internal space in no time at this rate. As it is right now, there's not a thing on my 8gb card and I'd like to start taking advantage of it.Any suggestions?
However after getting a bunch of apps from the android market i am getting a warning saying my internal memory card is getting full.when I check under settings, i still have about 20mb left. At what size do i start getting this warning? Its it possible to save apps onto the sd card instead of the internal memory? Also is there a size limit for the number of text messages, i starting getting warning messages for those as well.
I'm having a strange problem with my BlackBerry browser. I have deleted the history and cleared the cache in the browser, but links on webpages are still showing up as purple (i.e., visited) even after the history and cache have been cleared.
i rooted my lava n320 phone and removed some system apps to free up internal memory but without decreasing my phone memory is full
I need to recover deleted files from the phone's internal memory (not the SD card), using data recovery software. Normally, any drive/card/internal camera flash memory/GSM phone internal memory simply shows up in windows explorer as a flash or hard drive- but i have been unable to read this or other CDMA phopne's internal memory (unless i use BITPIM- which dosen't allow me to run my recovery software).
I took a few pictures before noticing that the camera wasn't saving them to the SD card and was instead saving them to the phone's memory. How can I download those pictures to my computer? I see the SD card when I connect the phone to the laptop but not the phone's internal memory.
I am trying to get all the histories of android default browser.
Where is the UI state information (used in super.onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)) stored and how can it be deleted from another app or command line on a rooted phone? I need to delete the user data (username, password) of both the native Facebook app (com.facebook.katana) and the stock browser on Android (com.android.browser) on a rooted phone via command line (which I call from my own app) or elsewhere from my own app. This is what I'm calling: rm /data/data/com.android.browser/cache/webviewCache/* rm /data/data/com.android.browser/databases/* killall -9 com.android.browser rm /data/data/com.facebook.katana/cache/webviewCache/* rm /data/data/com.facebook.katana/databases/* killall -9 com.facebook.katana After I kill the facebook process, I check the running processesand there is no FB process running anymore. I then restart FB via long-press on home and choosing the FB app. Previous username/password still show on the login screen (= same screen as I left it before I killed the app). When I then press 'back' on the device, and then start the app again via home long-press / select FB, the login screen is empty. Where do the values for username/password come when I start FB again in the first place? I assume that the login activity still retrieves the savedInstanceState, but how could that be avoided - or else, where are those UI states actually stored, in order to delete them? Shouldn't the restarted app, after all it's processes are killed, already be in a new lifecycle? Same problem is with the stock browser: if i leave the browser and I'm on the login page of for example gmail.com where the username/password is entered (but form not submitted yet), then killing the browser process, the values (username) entered into the form will still be there after restarting the app again after it's been killed.
I have a rooted HTC Desire HD with a custom ROM (Android RevolutionHD). I have heard a lot of about moving the apps to the SD card to save space in the memory's phone, but does it really usefull apart of "saving memory"? or it can make slower the phone's boot because loading apps from the sd? Need to know more about advantages and disadvantages of moving apps to the SD. My priority is a faster / smoother phone UI and boot, being the memory space not so important.
With my previous phones, I used to save my MP3s on either E:Sounds/Digital or C:Sounds/Digital. In Other words I was saving them under "Sounds/Digital" folder all the time. With newer phones there is also a "Music" folder. Which folder do you think is best for saving your MP3s when it comes to saving on a Memory Card or Mass Memory?
I have now a "low disk space" notification received regarding the phone memory.it was under 19 mb K deleted a few apps.. now I have 23 mb free and the note is gone.How can you make the default save place to be the SD card and not the phone memory? (I've done that for the cache from Dolphin browser to be saved on SD)I ve read the post regarding root to make the apps to run from SD for the moment I will not root my phone waiting for the 2.0.1 update.any other solutions? I have a SD card memory of 5.55 GB free.I want to use this space and not the phone's.what program dou you use to see the apps on the phone and the space that is occupied by those? I use Astro/phone and the MOTOROLA MEDIA LINK/PC.
When I try to clear the browser history the program crashes. I have tried a couple of apps from the Market but neither of them have worked. I have tried, unsuccessfully, to locate the history cache in the filing system. P.S. I can delete history links one at a time. Is it just that I have allowed the cache to get too large before trying to delete it - I'm not sure I have ever cleared it before!
I have free space on the internal memory of my phone that is not recognized for things like installing an app. This is my phone: Model: Motorola XT919 Android version: jelly bean 4.1.2 Internal memory: 4gb (really 2,2 gb free since the rest is used by the OS) Rooted: Yes I found out about this problem because I was running out of internal space so I inmediately checked the storage settings and I found this: In the installed apps settings it shows 766 mb free of internal space But in the storage settings the things are different: As you can see, this time I only have 127 mb free of internal storage.... Just to be sure, I downloaded the app Storage Analyser and once again checked the internal storage free space: And this time shows 1,52 gb free... Well the thing is that my phone considers as free space just the 127mb shown on storage settings, and I want the phone also uses the free space shown on the app settings or the one shown by storage analyser.
