    Whenever I try to download an app that is more then 10MB it keeps showing me the error : There is insufficiant disk space.. But I checked and there is still plenty of space left. I even have 8gb SD card in my phone. I tried to clear catche, clear data from the Google Play store, but that didn't fixed any thing.

    ALSO: I tried to diall *#9900# but I don't get the right hidden menu. The only thing that I get is: Debug Utils and MTKLogger.

    Is it possible to get rid of this problem in Samung Galaxy S4 copy?

    Sure. SD card was formated before taking screenshots.

    Also, I have installed only three apps (Birthdays and Espier Screen Locker and Orai (weather)) that can't be removed to SD card and other apps are system apps (were uploaded by the creators and can't be removed unless the phone is rooted. MY PHONE IS NOT ROOTED

    +*#9900# hidden menu:
    I would try this: With apps that were preloaded that you don't use, you can disable and uninstall the updates. After they are disabled, you can clear the data from them, and see how much room you get.

    Even though the title is for Samsung products, the steps are the same.

    Another suggestion: Remove your three apps. One might be misreporting how much space it is taking up.

    I formated the SD card and factory reseted my phone. So far so good. Thank you for you effort and tips!!

    UPDATE: To try out I installed Pou(~17MB) and Geometry Dash Lite(~24MB), but once I tried to install Retrica, I got the Insufficiant disk space error

    Ok. Let's start over: Reset again, and take a screenshot of your storage stats, please.

    Here are the stats after the factory reset:
    Insufficient disk space + *#9900# problem-img_20130101_000401.jpg
    Insufficient disk space + *#9900# problem-screenshot_2013-01-01-00-03-13.png
    Insufficient disk space + *#9900# problem-img_20130101_000430.jpg

    but after those two apps that I mentioned (Pou and Geometry Dash) The Internal Storage ''Available'' numbers go to minus (-) (ex.:-8.80291B)

    Ok, the OS is taking up roughly half of your internal storage. The bigger issue is either the apps you are trying to load are poorly reporting their memory to the OS, or they are larger games (I am not inclined to agree with that).
    If you were to load a completely different app, does it act the same way?

    I tried to intall Instagram and here are the changes in Internal Storage:
    Insufficient disk space + *#9900# problem-screenshot_2014-07-26-18-58-30.png

    It changed from 8.89GB to 5.80GB after installing Instagram.

    I am wondering if there is an error in reporting storage from the OS. I don't think there is any way Instagram would take up 3 GB...

    That means that the phone has a LOT less than 16GB of storage, but it's programmed to say it has 16GB. That's what happens with a lot of those "copies" - they look like the phone they're a copy of, the screens look the same, but what's inside is totally different (and less).

    Junk files are the auto generated files and if we not timely remove these files, these files consume most of the disk space and insufficient space error comes. So we should remove these file and Krojam Cleaner is the best way to do this.
