In case your android device has started complaining of low memory space or low storage space, here is how to solve the problem once and for all having no need to root the phone.

You can still follow this guide because, in no time, it might begin complaining -that's if you have low end/memory android device anyway.

How to Fix "Storage Space Running Out" Problem of Android Device


Here, we outlined two methods, one for unrooted android device and the other for rooted android device.


Unrooted Android Device:
1- Download Mobogenie for Windows from here and install it on your PC. Once the installation is complete, proceed to step 2 below.

2- On your phone, enable the USB Debugging Option in the settings. Go to Menu <<>> Settings <<>> Applications <<>> Development (for android 2.3.X downward) and for android 4.X.X, go to Menu <<>> Settings <<>> Developer Options <<>> USB Debugging

3- Connect your phone to the PC using a compatible USB cable. Mobogenie should lunch automatically, wait few seconds for it to connect the phone. If it could not find the driver, Mobogenie would attempt to download the driver and for this, you need internet connection on the PC.

4- Once the installation is complete and Mobogenie has connected your phone to the PC, close Mobogenie and lunch command prompt on your PC. For info on how to Set up ADB and use command prompt, click here.

5- On command prompt, type cd c:\adb and press enter. Now, type adb devices and press enter to show that your phone is connected to the PC in adb mode. And finally, type adb shell pm set-install-location 2 and press enter. (This process sets your SD card as your default app storage)

6- You can now go to Menu <<>> Settings <<>> Applications and move all your apps to your SD card to free up space then, reboot your phone.

For Rooted Android Device

This process is made a lot more easier for rooted android device. You only have to install an app then, set your storage option.
Simple as that!

1- Go to play Store and search for Set Install Location. Download the app, install then, open the app.

2- Grant the superuser right and set your install location to the SD card (external) storage.

3- Now, go to Menu <<>> Settings <<>> Applications and move your apps to the SD card then, reboot your phone.

NOTE:
This process lets you move all your installed apps to the SD card and also sets your SD card as the default app storage which saves your phone a lot of space.
