    Hello,
    On my GF's phone, it always says not enough space" although she has all of her intern space free, and her sd card is still 50% free.
    It always says that when she wants to download an app, or update one ...
    But she has plenty of space..

    I don't find much on this one on Android Forums.

    The spec at ... Compare phones - GSMArena.com ... shows that it only has 512M of RAM and is running ICS.

    You could try clearing the cache and rebooting and the try the download from Play Store.

    A simple and quick thing you can try is shut the device down and remove the battery for a minute(if possible) and then put the battery back in and re-boot.This had helped me in the past when some apps or something has locked in the system.

    HTH :)

    Uninstall or at least backdate every app you don't use, especially the built-in Google ones like Maps. I have about twenty apps that live on my update list that I just ignore.

    That is freaking awesome!

    It's just like WinDirStat which I love having for Windows but for Android.
    (For all versions of windows and free- WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics )

    Thanks for posting this little gem.

    You're welcome.

    Hah I love WinDirStat too. It's such a brilliantly simple tool. And I was well pleased when I found this app on Android. It seems so obvious to have storage represented visually by area. Literally at-a-glance.
