@mini1.3 Welcome to the forum
There are a few things to check
a) do you have an SD card inserted and is it formatted as Internal or External
Android 6 introduced new options for using an SD card in your phone. When you format an SD card or insert a new SD card, you’ll have two options: Internal (adopted) storage or External (portable) storage. The option that most closely matches older Android versions is the external option.
There are a couple of things to take into account when choosing which option works best for you:
Formatting as internal storage means that…
your SD card and the internal phone storage will no longer be vis…
b) If you don’t have one check the amount of memory left if you only have about 10% or worse 4GB o 5GB then you will find problems as the OS requires some 4/5 for a swap.
was a brand new sd card formatted, its 128gb and not used more than 2gb yet
how do i check if its internal or external ??
Go to Settings > Storage
If it’s external you will see an eject symbol to the right of the SD card
in storage setting it is not showing an eject button next to the memory card
is it worth formatting the card again and choosing external then ?? as the messenger lite and facebook lite apps are usless
Yes reformat as portable but move whatever media you can to a safe place.
Here’s a post about my latest playing with formatting. I was just interested as I always use Portable as a) it is not encrypted and can be used outside the phone b) if the phone dies I still have my media and personal data in tact.
I just updated my FP3 to android10. From that moment i was able to use my SD card as phone storage. Once i have configured it, telegram & whatsapp but also gmail (at the moment i notice just this apps) cannot use media anymore. I mean, i can write and read message but cannot download and upload images or audio or anything else. It just said: download failed. any clue? thank you
just formatted it,
now asking if i want to use it is as
extra storage for phone or portable storage assuming portable storage
just throwing up errors as not enough memory to install ebay… even though only used 25% internal storage
Did you ensure the phone was working before you tried reformatting?
Disable apps that use memory, you can start the phone in safe mode which disables all apps.
Sometimes 3rd-party apps can make your device unstable: your device might restart, freeze, crash, or become slower than usual.
To identify if a 3rd-party app is causing you issues, you can use Sa...
Go to each app via App and Notification > See ALL # APPs and delete the cache for as many as you can be bothered to free memory.
Once you are up and running ensure the camera app uses portable storage etc.
Move images etc from and WhatsApp download etc to the SD card to keep the main memory free.
device was working fine all apps worked, tried resseting it twice now and still wont let me install anything as not enough storage,
think ill factory reset it and start again
i have over 20gb free on the phone and empty memory card but will not allow me to install any apps now as saying not enough memory
camera set to sd card
Google have stopped Android 10 from installing apps on the SD card so you can only have personal data and some related to the apps on the main memory.
When you say resetting, what did you do?
By the way ~ have you updated to 0129 yet?
it did an update a few days ago
it wont let me install to the phone keeps saying clear storage…
cant even screenshot as not enough memory apprently
So is the phone working apart from trying to install a new app?
Installing an SD card as internal is known to precipitate many such problems, you may have to do a factory reset as you said.
Reinstall formatted card
Setup as external storage
Working better than ever
