    I currently have nearly 200mb left on my phone but I keep getting a toast notification saying that my storage is low. This seems to happen mostly when I'm watching videos on YouTube (with IE11) or sometimes when browsing through the Facebook app.

    I've tried using the clear temporary files button in the storage as well as cleaning it with the Storage Cleaner app but that didn't work.

    What can I do?

    Delete big games. If that isn't enough, start deleting some music you don't like.

    How much does your phone have total? To me 200mb would mean I was out of space.

    When this keeps popping up try checking your Phone storage and you'll see why. I think watching/streaming videos online using IE stores something in your phone, though I;m not sure, But try Deleting the history and wait. it'll be back to its normal status.

    RuleOfSines: It's an HTC 8S so it only has 4 GB internal memory and I have a MicroSD card for my music, images, videos, etc. So to me 200 MB is still a lot :P

    eroselim: I'll try deleting my IE cache (didn't think of that for some reason). Thanks

    200MB is not enough. A lot of apps need extra space to cache downloaded items. All of them will use your phone's main storage. A microSD card can't help with that other than saving media files. You either clean up the storage or stop whinning :)

    It is my divine right to whine! ;)

    Seriously though it never did that before which is why I was asking. But I guess I'll clean up a bit!

    WP8 runs Windows NT kernel. It's no WinCE like WP7. A powerful OS kernel needs more space to breathe. Imagine your PC only has 200MB free space left on the disk.

    In old days with Windows Mobile (WinCE), a few my phones came with less than 200MB total storage space. Things have changed dramatically.

    Thanks. I'll clean up my apps. Windows Phone 8.1 should solve this type of trouble! :)

    I doubt it. If anything, it probably require more free space as more features jammed in.

    Since 8.1 will allow apps to be saved to SD card, why wouldn't it solve the problem? Your post doesn't add up Foxbat.

    OP, my phone has 8gig (820 with media and maps on SD) which appears to mean I can have about 2.6gig of apps with one gig left to breath (sensible amount). That means with 4gig you get 1.3gig of space for apps. So, get small apps only. Very small apps. Until 8.1 that is...

    Windows Phone 8S by HTC does not support Windows Phone 8.1, the most recent upgrade is GDR3. on my phone I only get 606.02MB of storage to use for apps, as maps, temporary files and emails take up 260MB combined, even when I delete them all somehow. I need the apps I have, which leaves me with 99MB free, so I permanently get the low storage notifications and vibrations, very irritating. In the past I didn't have enough storage for the apps I needed to I had to carry around a 2nd phone to keep the extra apps on that MicroSD card, but since eBay app was disabled on Windows Phone, and Skype app broke forever, I could uninstall them to free a some much needed space. 4GB is bare minimum for Windows Phone specs, really cheeky HTC for a 130 phone.
