  1. I have watched several video’s concerning critically low storage space on the Fire Stick and followed your advice above. I have had the Stick about one year. I have never downloaded an App of any type. I used the ES Explorer you recommended. I found no apps other than what came with the Stick and there are no APK’s. I have also cleared the cache on the apps that came with the Stick.

    I have only 200mg of usable space. Do you have any ideas as to what is eating the space and how do I find them.

  2. This doesn’t help. Having to do a factory reset just to download it all again and this occur again. Why hasn’t Amazon fixed this error in their programming
