Freeing up storage space

As you use HTC U11, you'll accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are some tips on how to free up phone storage space.

Manage photos and videos

  • After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot. Discard the rest, if you don't need them.
  • After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. Delete original files or move them elsewhere, such as to your computer.
  • If you're only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. Hi-res video takes up more space.
  • RAW image files take up a lot of storage space. It's recommended to use a storage card as the default storage for photos and videos. If your storage card is running low on space, consider moving RAW image files to your computer.
  • Turn on Storage manager to help handle old photos and videos on your phone.

Remove unused themes

Themes can quickly consume up storage space because themes can include images, sounds and icons. Remove themes you're not using. See Deleting a theme in http://www.htc.com/support/apps/themes/.

Back up data and files

Keep only the most recent data in your apps and files that you often need to use. You can back up your other data and files. For some tips, see Ways of backing up files, data, and settings.

Remove or disable apps

Uninstall apps that you've downloaded if no longer need them. See Uninstalling an app.

Preinstalled apps can be disabled when you're not using them. See Disabling an app.

Manually free up space

On the Storage screen, tap Free Up Space. The phone then checks the phone storage and then suggest items that you may want to delete.

Move apps to the storage card

Third-party apps that you've downloaded and installed can be moved to the storage card if you've set up the card as internal storage. See Moving apps and data between the phone storage and storage card and Moving an app to or from the storage card.
