Archos 5 500gb - no available space

Post by mccledg »

I have 290 GB Available space in internal storage but only 700 kb in available system storage space - Help! How do I free up storage space - I've deleted programs, emptied files and still no storage space. I read something about moving items to internal storage, but didn't see any way to actually do it.

One thing worth doing is to go to Settings> Applications> Manage applications>, then go through the major apps clearing the cache.

Browser(s), Players, etc.

It's surprising how much space can be freed.

a) Thanks for the info! I just went to Archos and this is were I ended up. If I knew what I was doing, I woudn't need the forum!
b) It seems like a sarcastic answer kinda detracts from the fact that you're a nice enough person to point me in the right direction.

Wasn't in any way meant to be sarcastic.
In the gen8 forum there are not that many that know the difference.
