It can be really frustrating when trying to install an app, or do something else on your phone, to get an ‘insufficient storage’ out of space error. But what’s even more frustrating is knowing that you should have plenty of space. When this happens on a Samsung Galaxy S2, the problem is likely due to cache saturation or excessive log files, and to fix it you need to do a dumpstate clearance by deleting the dumpstate and logcat (don’t worry, this will make sense in a moment). Here’s how to free up that space on your Galaxy S2.
Cache saturation is basically when your caches or log files in memory are full, and using up your memory (it’s also a term in geocaching for having different geocaches too close to each other).
Even though it is actually very easy to perform a dumpstate clearance to clear out your Galaxy S2’s caches, for some reason Samsung has not made it obvious or even easy to figure out how to do it.
So we’re going to tell you how.
