    Problem solved: I went from 0MB free to 250MB free! I have a Verizon Android HTC phone. I struggled with the critically low internal storage error that prompted me to clear the temporary files from applications. I had to go through this for each text I wanted to send, and sometimes couldn’t even take a photo. I finally figured it out last night after 5-months of annoyances! If you have the “Backup Assistant Plus” app on your phone (mine came default and cannot be uninstalled), this might be eating up a majority of your internal storage. I never used this app, but it was constantly running on my phone. I discovered it was using 250MB of data on my phone. I deleted the data, and my phone is healthy again! If you do not use this app, you might want to do this too.
    To do what I did:
    1. Go to Settings
    2. Go to Apps
    3. Go to “All Apps”
    4. Go to “Backup Assistant Plus”
    5. Hit the “Clear Data” button
    6. Wallaah!

    Hi! Interesting stuff. I have a doubt though. In my android 2.2.1 the LOST.dir folder has 3 files each named as a 5 digit number. For each file, the details section shows ‘Last modified time’ as ’01/01/1980 00:00′. Is it safe to delete these files?

      Hi Rishav,

      I guess you’ve already deleted those files by now. If not:

      Yes you can delete them without affecting your Android’s Operating System. They are just corrupted files in your SDCard and It will be a headache to extract them anyway.

    For my S2 GT-9100 device with stock android 4.1.2 was showing system memory full messages all the time with System Storage 1.87 used out of 1.97 GB.

    Following worked for me like a charm
    1. *#9900# typed on keypad — System Storage 1.53 used out of 1.97GB
    2. App Cache Cleaner – free from Google Play — System storage 621MB used out of 1.97GB

    Hope this helps someone.

    Your title is Internal storage getting low, and you only talk about cleaning your sd card. This was no help at all!
