    Default Trapped memory?

    Ok, so I have my tablet, and it had like 1 GB left and I saw this game that I wanted and it was about 600 MB, so I said that if I didn't like it I could un-install it and get my memory back, so I installed it and as would happen normally it told me that nearly all my storage space has been used, so I didn't like the game and I uninstalled it, but it did not give me my memory back, and now I'm stuck without being able to use some of the main things on my tablet.

    Please help, I nead it...

    Use a file manager (this is a good, free, one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...gs.android.pop ) to search for a folder on your device with the same name as the game you installed (or the game developer's name). If you find such a folder, delete it - after due diligence review of its contents.

    More than likely, the game left behind its data files after uninstall. This is not unusual.
