    Require more comments on this topic. Becoz most of the windows phone comes with 8gb internal storage. On todays date not only me but many windows phone user lack of internal storage space becoz of which they can't install recent software updates.

    Yes, if I could get rid of some removable Windows software, the update would install but I can't.

    And now I also have a Calendar and Mail update that will seemingly never install.

    There needs to be a solution, especially given that I've read that the new update allows more de-installation.

    If you're low on storage that means you have to much pictures/videos/music on your phone. Delete it, or put it on your pc or OneDrive, and problem solved.

    All's pics , videos, music is on sd card. My mobiles internal storage mostly captured system (which we cannot delete) and Microsoft inbuilt apps (same which we cannot move or uninstall).
    So tell me whether factory reset helps me?

    I don't think people understand the difference between system storage and sd storage. You are for the most part not in control of what is on system storage, so i have nothing left to move and a new OS half-installed as a result.

    I'm going to try a factory reset in the next few days as it seems the only way to resolve this problem, but if OS updates keep overloading the system storage then this problem will turn up again eventually.

    Yes you are right. Factory reset is not a permanent solution it just delays the process of mobile becoming scrap for further few months until the next update comes.
    Microsoft developers should make some provision to at least give an option in the internal storage to delete those inbuilt apps which we don't want.

    Please let us know if it clears any space, and how much, if you don't care to 😀
    ...thanks.
