How to clear storage data

expand collapsive

The storage in 6 Android phones I have are running out. It is filled with unnecessary data. Is there a way to reduce the internal storage in the phones remotely at once without deleting most of the apps

    Hey @timea and @lyt0n,

    Thanks for reaching out. To answer both of your questions, you can free up the amount of unnecessary storage space considerably. However, this won’t be possible using policies, so you’ll have to perform deletions for apps you deem unnecessary; or app data clearances for each device individually or in bulk. If you navigate to the Manage tab, you’ll find what you need in Devices > Actions. You can either uninstall apps you deem unnecessary using the Uninstall Application action. Another option would be to free up a considerable amount of storage by deleting app data in your corresponding devices using the Clear App Data action. Note that this action works only on Samsung Knox devices and Android Enterprise devices running on Android 9.0 and above.

    Along with this, I’ll also redirect you to the File Explorer section present in Manage > Chosen Device. You can copy, delete or move files present in external or internal storage, giving you more options to free up space on your device. However, this action can only be executed for a single device at a time.

    Thus, you’ll be able to successfully free up storage in all your enrolled Android devices remotely with just a few clicks of your mouse.

    We hope this was helpful for both of you. Please do reach out to us if you have any further queries.
