    Hey everyone, so I have been trying to use my external SD card on my phone, so I am trying to download root external 2 internal and it tells me not enough space left even though I have over a gb left. If someone could help that would be great, thanks!

    Hi there, sdogalex. Please let us know which device you're using. If it has its own subforum, we can move this there--it's often helpful to direct questions/problems like this to other owners of the same device, as there may be specific known issues with it, and fixes for it. :)

    The alert (which stops sync, Gmail from notifying you, and play store from installing apps) comes up when your internal storage (in /data/app) reaches 25% of capacity. Depending on the total available storage (100mb, 2gb, 16gb, etc) the trigger point can be very different. I used to see this often with cheap prepaid devices once I hit 20mb remaining, but larger capacity phones can have it come up with a gigabyte remaining.

    My iPad 3 told me I ran out of space to install a 100mb app even though going to settings showed 2gb left.
