    Default "Your device doesn't have enough storage space to synch." - Low memory error msg

    My stock un-rooted Verizon Samsung Note 2 phone went down to a pathetic 271 MB of available internal storage space. As a result, the phone couldn't do even simple things as synching my Gmail email account. There are probably other things the phone can't do as well due to running low on internal storage space.

    This is the first time I've seen this message. Even a new icon showed up in the top left corner of the screen. It's the white color circular icon in between 2 other icons. That's the icon warning me of low available space. See attached screenshot picture.

    Am I the first to encounter this problem? Am I the all-time low memory leader? Do I get a prize????

    Is that a Samsung Note 3 in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

    Your the first I've seen not able to figure out that stuff takes up space on a phone. Maybe you need to clear what you don't use and not need off your phone or maybe install an SD card to store music, photos, podcast, documents, and other downloads. That way your internal memory will stay clear unless you download a lot of apps. Next time if you want more storage you might want to shoot for a phone with greater internal memory. If you had a phone other than the Galaxy Note II you might be stuck if it doesn't have a micro sd card expansion slot.

    You should be able to click on each category. That may bring up a list that details what each category consists of.
    Another thing to try is clearing cache in recovery.

    Please keep the discussion civil and on-topic. I suggest that those participating here acquaint themselves with the forum rules.

    Clear your cache, move whatever you can to your SD card, and look at your miscellaneous files (there's probably stuff in there you didn't know you had). If there's items you want to keep, and aren't necessary for the operation of your device, you may want to consider moving them to a Google Drive or Dropbox.
