Amazon Fire TV Stick users are just realizing 'build-up mistake' is eating up large chunk of storage and has easy fix | The Sun

AMAZON Fire TV Sticks comes with a limited amount of storage and a simple mistake can leave you with even less.

It's best to keep as much storage space as possible so you can download all the apps and content you need.

Every app you download will create a cache on your Fire TV Stick.

A cache stores data and can be useful as it helps an app remember your needs and preferred content.

The bad side is not clearing your cache regularly can take up storage on your device.

Amazon also recommends doing this to solve app issues.

It says on its website: "To resolve intermittent app issues, clear the app data and cache."

Clearing the cache on your Amazon Fire TV Stick is very easy to do.

Use your Fire Stick remote to head to the Settings section.

Then, click on Applications and tap Manage Installed Applications.

Now, you'll be able to click on the app you want to clear.

You can click Clear Cache and Clear Data.

Sometimes your cache will automatically be cleared.

Amazon explains: "If an app is unused for more than 30 days and the device is running low on storage, the storage optimizing feature will automatically clear the app cache.

"This feature runs in the background and can’t be deactivated."

If you're still having storage issues, you can extend your storage with a USB drive.

You should also consider deleting old apps you don't use.
