    I've had the D3 for about 1 week and a half and just got this weekend a message saying my internal storage was low. So I started reading on the forums about the storage allocations. I've moved what I can to the Media section, I uninstalled the let's play golf (after I tried it and said nah don't need it and the Nova ), but there are still some that I can't move to the media or sd card. (I have a 32gb card) Any suggestions?

    The internal storage low warning is there since some app data also goes into the internal storage. I think the warning comes up with around 1gb of space left.

    Not the same as the infamous "low on space" warning with the Incredible, that still had plenty of sapce that could not be used, due to the error.

    But because of that I couldn't install whatever it was I was trying to. And I couldn't move anymore of the apps in that section to the media section.

    Should be no problem then. Did you try rebooting and trying again?

    I had this warning and had an app install blocked. I can't remember if I had to reboot or just try again. But it eventually installed and I haven't seen the message again since.

    Is there any way to change that warning threshold? It seems absolutely ridiculous to have 1gb free and yet get a warning that you internal memory is low and not allow you to install an app. So the couple that I have installed, and I mean a couple, I have to choose which one to keep and which one to delete.
