    Default Storage space running out on my 8GB A13 Mid

    I recently purchased two android tablets for my boys. One is working fine and the other one keeps telling me that storage space is running out.

    Here is some info on the tablet currently

    Total space .98gb
    apps 52.06mb
    available 8.88mb
    Internal Storage
    total space 5.00gb
    available 5.00gb
    Internal storage .97 gb 10mb free

    I'm not real sure what to do about this, being that I am not real tech savy. I can't return it because there was a 30 day warranty and that has passed. I bought a 16gb memory card thinking that would work, but it didnt.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    It got set back to factory settings, so there are no apps on the table

    Welcome to the forums.
    Is there anyway to post a picture of the Storage stats? Either by taking a picture with another phone or a screenshot (typically power and volume down at the same time).

    Thanks for posting those. This is really strange. The second picture,to me, says you still have 5 GB of space free but the system is saying you are out of space.
    Have you put anything on there other than apps? Music, videos, anything like that?

    Your tablet runs Ice Cream Sandwich which allocates storage differently than Jelly Bean. The internal storage (minimal) is for apps and the phone storage is for your files and app data. How many apps are installed the on the table with the problem?
    Pat
    Nook Color - CM10.1 ( Jelly Bean 4.2.2) on eMMC
    Google Galaxy Nexus - stock Jelly Bean 4.3
    Galaxy Nexus 10 - stock KitKat 4.4.2
    Galaxy Nexus 7 (2nd Generation) - stock KitKat 4.4.2
    Chromecast

    There isnt anything on there at all. I reset it back to factory settings. I have not put anything on there at all.
    I even put in a 16gm memory card and still got the same thing

    A memory card would be good for storing music and pictures or videos on it. The OS does not support applications to the card.

    I would try a factory reset, if you haven't done so already.

    ok, great! That seemed to work. I had reset it before, but I did it differently the second time.

    Thank you so much! I was ready to throw it out the window, lol!!
