It is not impossible to prevent this from happening, but it requires almost continuous monitoring and that is why it is best to resort to tools that eventually help us free up space, since at any given moment we can consume a large part of the memory with these residual data.

In any android mobile We find the native Google Files app, which is useful when exploring the mobile’s files and, of course, for cleaning. And not manually, which also allows it, but it even has a dedicated tab for convenient and quick cleaning. In this post we will tell you how you can make it a shortcut to run the cleanup faster.
