Why am I running out of space on my phone?

Episode 1591 (58:33)

Andrew from San Jose, CA
SD Card

Andrew has an old Razor gaming smartphone and he's updated it to Android 8 Oreo. But he's almost run out of space on his SD card, and he doesn't have any photos or videos on it. He backs up everything to Google Photos. What is going on? Leo says to pop your SD card out and look at it. See if it has a ton of temp files on it. You can even format it. Then put it back in. It's also possible Andrew bought a counterfeit card that says it's a 256GB size. It happens a lot, even buying on Amazon. There's also an app called FILES by Google, which can clean out your SD card for you.
