    Hi guys,
    I am using HTC Desire 816 handset which contains 8 gb of internal memory.
    In that 8gb i can use only 3.9gb for storing app related files and other stuffs,remaining space occupied by OS.
    Currently i am facing memory not available issue while downloading through internet or installing new apps.
    so i checked the space available in internal memory using ESS file explorer and
    found 400mb space free and 3.5gb space used.
    But i dont have that much files in my internal memory.
    So i selected all the files in the "emulated" folder ("0" & "Legacy") and checked the properties which shows total
    size is 1.8gb.
    Here my confusion is both the files are of size 1.8gb.But i select both the fiels and check the whole space it is showing 1.8gb only.
    So where is the remaining space,which file occupying that space,can i delete that files.
    please help me.

    Android OS, Android system and the storage space it uses for keeping track of things you want it to remember. Also look in miscellaneous - that's the data all your apps are saving.

    Most current Android phones need 300MB-500MB free to run, so that's why you can't download anything - you're down to the minimum free space the phone can work with.
