Due to the limited storage space of Android phone and tablet, most Android users choose to use SD card to store more files. Even with SD card, sometimes we still need to clean up the old data on your Android device, like messages received months ago, photos that you don't want to save and contacts that have changed the phone number. After you delete some data, you may be surprised to find that some important files were deleted together. At this time, don't worry.
