    have searched the forums and found a recent thread here of another poster with what looks like a similar issue, wasnt sure if I should post on his thread or start a new 1, merge if its best.

    When I try to move an app lets say co pilot to the sd card it tells me " Failed to move application:Not enough memory", I know there is enough memory as have checked on the pc and under storage it says theres enough memory and under USB storage theres 23.56mb of storage free and I believe this is where its trying to move co pilot to.

    From the thread I linked to ill tell you what it says under storage

    If I look at my Settings --> Storage, it shows

    -Device Memory - 395MB
    -USB Storage - total space 11.5GB Available space23.56MB
    -SD card - Total space 29.23GB Available space 23.69GB

    If it helps I have formatted the card on the PC and on the phone.

    How much of that 395MB on the device is free? The move consists of at least putting a link in the device's storage to the app on the SD card. If there's no room for the link it's not going to work.

    Under Device memory it says 378MB is available space.


    I cant understand how a factory reset has done this, ive not had the issue before and ive been able to move an app (if there was the option to) when I wanted.

    Hi, just thought I would update the thread, id deleted some apps that were on the USB Storage, downloaded apps2sd which told me which apps could be moved to the sd card (Id bought a new sd card just in case). Im considering replacing the phone and selling the SGS2.
