Ive been trying to clear out my USB storage/ memory because it seems to get very full even though I didnt think I had a lot on my device. Any media I have (photos or videos) is all on the SD card . Most of my apps are on the SD card except for those that cant be moved - and I limit the # of those I have. Yet my memory keeps getting fuller and fuller.
I was looking at the MYDEVICE app to try to figure out what else I could delete. I notice it says EXTERNAL_SD has 51 MB which seems large to me. Does part of my SD card also count against the system memory? Im confused. I thought you moved stuff to the SD card to avoid that. Can someone please explain.
Also does anyone know what .giq is - Is that something thats supposed to be there or something app-related that can be deleted. That is showing up as 21 MB. Then Android - which I assume is just standard - is HUGE - 1411 MB. Is it supposed to be that large? Everything else is a couple MB or smaller - in the KB range. So Im confused as to why my device memory gets fulller and fuller every day - even if Im not downloading apps, photos, videos, music etc onto the device?
Maybe one of you techies can help explain - Also what is the difference between the SYSTEM MEMORY and the STORAGE/USB - What gets saved onto what. I think the device has 1.62GB of USB Storage (that is what Im trying to empty) and then it has DEVICE MEMORY...and I guess I dont clearly understand the difference - and what is clogging up my USB storage - which seems mostly to be Android/External SD/ .giq. (I was able to clear out cache from the Zedge ringtone app which also seemed to be taking up a huge amount of space even though the app itself was only 2 mb on the SD card and I had only downloaded a handful of ringtones, the cache appeared to be taking up over 80 MB of space and deleting that created some breathing room)
Ive also cleared all my call logs although that didnt seem to make a difference in the USB storage department.
According to the MyDevice App, the top 3 culprits are
Android 1411 MB
External _SD 51MB (Id like to get rid of this unless the stuff on my SD card is also counting against my device storage - am I doing something wrong?)
.giq 21 MB
Those are the three things I need to try to minimize - everything else is just a couple MB or KBs
So is there a way to get rid of that 51 MB of external SD? Im still confused why that is showing up on the device storage?
What is the normal % of USB storage? and of device memory? that you should optimally have
