Many Android users are frustrated by this problem of having very little memory/storage space left on their device’s internal storage (sdcard 0). The result is extremely annoying because in that situation one may face with issues of unable to further download apps, unable to take videos/photos (due to limited storage available) as well as can’t move apps & data to sdcard. Device performance will also be affected.

Above: can’t move apps to sdcard…

If your device is rooted, then the above problems can be solved effectively.
What you need,
~ download DiskUsage (Play Store)
~ download Link2SD (Play Store)
~ download ES Explorer File Manager (Play Store)

Method of clearing caches and unwanted data resided on the cloaked up internal storage:

Open DiskUsage and go into various “hidden” caches & data to delete them.

Make sure you do not delete system data and files. You can free up lots of storage space for internal storage (sdcard 0).

You will be surprised that just how much unwanted caches & data in there where Clean Muster app couldn’t clean them.

Before that, my devices was left with less than 50MB of internal storage!  After the big clean up, this is what i got, (below)

With that, i could again move non~system apps to the sdcard 0 storage using Link2SD. That leaves more space for device storage to allow more apps downloading. (below)

In addtion, you may also move heavy volume image data such as videos and photos onto the external (micro) sdcard using ES File Explorer/Manager from the internal storage.

Plus, you may want to download camera software/app that allows you to set (ext) sdcard as default photo/video shoots storage. Hence, all your video and photo shoots will go straight to extsdcard. That will also free up your internal storage from these heavy bulk of data.

Hope this piece of information may help many Android users out there.

What do you mean by “Open DiskUsage and go into various “hidden” caches & data to delete them.”, I cant get there, I dont see the option. Where is that?

Tap on the apps, system data etc. on the open screen of DiskUsage, find caches or unused data to delete….
