I have an empty SD card installed and have set the default write disk to SD card but my phone says there’s not enough memory to install apps. I also have 13GB left on phone.
Does the SD card work in another device?
Yes, it works fine. Strange thing is I also have 13GB left on internal phone storage but I still can’t download any apps due to ‘not enough memory’.
Sorry, make that 10.8 GB on phone storage. Still can’t download any apps due to insufficient space on device messages.
I have the same problem, and IMHO it has nothing to do with the sdcard.
I had a lot of problems updating / installing Apps, the message was “insufficent memory” - the internal storage, the internal sdcard, the external sdcard had all a lot of free space.
Finally I made a hard reset, restored all apps, everything worked fine till I reactivated the internal encryption of the FP1U.
Now I have the same problems like before, I think that the stock encryption blocks some important memory (Cache, Dalvik?).
If the thread-opener agrees, I propose to change the topic of this thread to “Cant store apps - insufficent memory message”.
So it would be better to find for other people having similar problems - and solutions?
Thanks for the responses. Yes - definitely agree to change title as proposed.

I added a “(Insufficient Memory)” to the topic title.
Yes I too get that all the time. The phone memory is saying insufficient space. I delete all in the cache in phone mem. and that always does it even though its usually a very small amount. I have moved everything( and I mean everything) I can to the internal memory and yet my phone storage is still over half full. How can I get more stuff out of there and into internal. Alot of the basic stuff that comes with the phone must be in there but no option to move it???
It seems that you still have two separate partitions on your FP.
Yes I did do the upgrade. I usually get the insufficient space error message when I try to apply app upgrades. Cant remember how long ago the 1.6 came out and if I have had that problem recently, in the last week say. if I do have it again i will let you know.
My storage problems are gone since I have updated to FP OS 1.8.
In the moment its beta ( release candidate), but very stable.
