How to Check the Remaining Space on FireStick


The Amazon Fire Stick is an excellent streaming media player. Unfortunately, despite Amazon’s efforts to improve the internal performance of the FireStick with more powerful components, the company has not yet addressed the issue of built-in storage. The majority of FireStick models, including the FireStick 4K, which is now the most popular of the group, come with a total storage capacity of 8 GB. About 5.5 gigabytes (GB) are made available to customers of the Fire TV Stick out of a total storage capacity of 8 GB. The remainder is taken up by the software that runs the operating system.

Why Does My Fire Stick Keep Saying Critically Low Storage?

An error message indicating that your Fire Stick has critically low storage capacity will appear if it does not have sufficient free storage space to enable routine operation.

The best solution is to clear out some of the storage capacity in either or both of the cases.

Even after you have cleaned the cache on the device, erased any unneeded data, and deleted any apps that aren’t being used, the dangerously low storage error may still appear in some instances. When this occurs, rebooting the Fire Stick is typically the solution to fixing the issue.
