Making more storage space

Making more storage space

As you use HTC One X‍+, you will accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are some tips on how to increase storage space.

Store files in Dropbox

Photos, email attachments, and other documents can be stored in Dropbox and accessed anywhere you are. You can set the Camera app to automatically upload photos to Dropbox.

Manage photos and videos

  • Set the Camera app to automatically upload to a photo-sharing site or online storage. When you reach the storage limit, just delete all your photos. You can retrieve them from the photo-sharing site or online storage when needed.
  • After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot and discard the rest.
  • After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. You can delete original files or move them to online storage or to your computer.
  • If you are not printing large photos or are only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. High-resolution media takes up more space. In Camera settings, tap Aspect and Resolution for photos or tap Video Quality for videos.

Back up apps data

Keep only the most recent data from apps on HTC One X‍+. You can back up calendars, contacts, and bookmarks or export text messages, and personal dictionaries. For details, see Backing up files, data, and settings.

Run the storage wizard

For general clean-up purposes, use the storage wizard to uninstall apps, change download settings for email and text messages, and delete apps data and other files.

Disable some apps

Apps, even if not used often, may be running in the background and downloading data into the phone storage. If the app cannot be removed, you can disable it. In Settings, tap Apps > All, and select the app that you want to disable. Tap Disable.

Freeing up phone storage space with the storage wizard

Easily free up space in the phone storage by cleaning the application cache, uninstalling apps, and changing Mail and Messages settings so that only the most recent data are kept.
Important: You cannot uninstall some preinstalled apps.
  1. Slide the Notifications panel open, and then tap .
