    My Nokia Lumia 530 can't perform a phone update because of insufficient space.
    With only 400 MB free space, because of a 2.83 GB system excluding all other things, it can't perform the update requiring 850 MB of space.
    And because of that, I can't install other applications that require this software update.

    Please, I need help.

    If you have a micro SD card, move all you're apps, photos, videos, etc. onto the SD card. That should free up close to 1 GB of space for you to update your phone.

    Reset phone and then update.

    It's still not enough. All my files are on on my SD already. What's taking up my phone memory is the SYSTEM.

    Is a reset safe? If yes, how can I do that?

    Reset phone, don't login with MS account, update, reset again and login with MS account. Future updates will have the ability to install on the SD card.

    Backup important data (pictures, songs, WhatsApp chats, etc.). And then reset phone. It will erase everything. You may select to format SD Card also because apps on SD Card won't work after reset.

    Thank you so much!

    But do I have to reset it manually again (for the second time)?

    It's optional (up to you) but it will free some space.

    That worked for me. Only one reset needed. System showed 1.1GB free but update still successful
    Thanks.
