    I have a Lumia 630 and I've been on the Win 10 slow ring for a while. Because of the phone's limited internal storage (4 gb), I've had to delete or move stuff to my SD card to make room for every update.

    However, the 10586.164 update says it needs 1.2 gb, and even after I've moved/deleted every movable/deletable app, all personal files, all temp files, etc., the available space still falls quite a bit short.

    So, what are my options? I'm thinking of using the Windows Device Recovery Tool to reset the phone to Win 8.1 and then jumping back onto the slow ring to update to the latest version of Win 10. Would that work? Are there other options? Thanks...

    L630 has 8GB of phone memory. Best option is to perform backup to onedrive and hard reset your device, don't restore from backup and install w10 under slow ring development via insider app.

    Oops, meant to type 8gb, but the point stands - not enough room.

    Anyway, thanks, guess the hard reset would be easier. Sound reasonable to anybody else?

    Did you have Denim update before you hopped on to Windows Insider Slow ring for Windows 10 Mobile?
