How to Clear Storage on Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X

Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X

Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X owners often complain that its internal storage fills up quickly. There is no way for the user to download a new application or shoot a video. But fortunately, there are some easy ways to clear the storage of Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X.

Manually Delete Unnecessary Files

If the owner of Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X has not cleared the device for a long time, first of all it is worth getting rid of large files that have not been used for a long time. This can be a downloaded movie, music files and other data. To delete the files, you need to open the "Explorer” app, select a folder or file, and then click the "Delete" button.

Remove Unnecessary Apps

Many applications are downloaded to the smartphone during the operation of Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X. Many of them are forgotten after a few days, but they continue to fill the device's memory. To delete such apps, you need to hold your finger on the game or program icon for a couple of seconds, and then move the icon to the "Delete" heading. After that, the software will be removed. You can also uninstall the application through Google Play or settings.

Clear the Application Cache

A more rational option for those who plan to continue using the program. Applications quickly accumulate temporary data, which is commonly referred to as a cache. Removing the cache does not lead to serious issues. The user does not have to re-authorize in the app.

Clearing the cache is done as follows:

  1. Open the device settings.
  2. Go to the Applications section.
  3. Select the program that takes up the most space.
  4. Press the Clear Cache button.

When performing the operation, do not confuse cache with application data. If cache is temporary files whose deletion does not lead to any issues, then clearing the data will end up with the user being forced to login to the account again.

Remove Files from Instant Messengers

When using WhatsApp and other similar messengers, Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X users often send photos to each other. They are not deleted after viewing, but saved in the device's memory. Therefore, they have to be removed manually.

All multimedia received via WhatsApp gets stored in the folder of the same name, which contains directories named "Images" and "Video". These directories must be cleared either through the file manager or through the "Explorer" of your PC.

Using Special Applications

You can install an application on Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X that can analyze the internal memory of the device and find trash (temporary files) in it. There are dozens of similar programs. One of the most popular ones is called CCleaner.

After downloading the app, the user needs to open the program, go to the "Trash" section and start the scan. At the end of the scan, the application will offer to free up some space. All that remains is to confirm the operation.

If Memory is Still Low

The previously discussed methods allow you to fully free up space on the internal storage of Alcatel IDOL MINI 6012X. However, even deleting a large number of files does not lead to optimal results if the owner purchased the device version with the minimum amount of memory.

There are a couple of ways to fix the situation. First, you can install a microSD card. It expands internal storage by 32-256 gigabytes depending on the selected configuration. Secondly, there is an option with uploading personal data to a "cloud" service like Google Drive or Yandex Disk. But you have to be careful, as only a limited amount of space is provided free of charge. Expanding your virtual storage requires a subscription.

Having chosen the appropriate option, the owner can transfer most of the files to a microSD card or upload data to the "cloud". Unfortunately, applications cannot be moved. But you can get rid of photos, videos and music without any problems.
