Before posting a comment, make sure it is not one of the bonehead remarks already posted…. “delete your porn collection” (real original) “seems to be a LG issue (look at third line of video description)”, “my phone is better”, 16gigs is not enough” “Android OS stinks” “the 3 min vid is too long” , “all you did was delete thumbnails”(fav comment from idiots – ever see a 1 gig thumbnail???), “my phone is better” “why not buy a bigger SD card” (from idiots who thought this was an External storage issue), “buy an I-phone” (real original).

METHODS ********************************************************

Method #1
in your internal memory navigate thru these FOLDERS:
“ANDROID” “DATA” “com.android.gallery3d” “FILES”
and find “.trashcan”, and delete its contents

If you can’t find the com.android.gallery3d or the .trashcan folder, they may be hidden, and in your file manager MENU or settings you may have to “unhide” hidden folders.

If .trashcan does not exist, or does not have anything in it, go to Method # 2
Method #2 Delete pics and vids via Gallery Menu.
(not much of a method) While in your pic GALLERY, go to he top left menu (small three lines icon) and select to empty the trashcan..
(you were probably unaware of this 7 day picture and video retention feature. For on-demand results, you must delete your gallery pics and videos TWICE, once at the gallery, and a second time via your gallery menu trashcan.
Method #3 (which you’ve probably done already) Use cleaners like CC Cleaner, or SD Maid. I did not have any luck with SD Maid, but you can try it, there are many other cleaners out there, but none worked for me for this particular situation.
Method 3 1/2 crAPP removal (my favorite)

Uninstall as many stupid apps that you do not routinely use…..for example, trip advisor, yelp, map my hike, , games, and other crap like the almost defunct Facebook etc. You can always reinstall these apps via Google-Play.

To remove factory preset bloatware apps, you will most likely need to “root” your phone, which i used to do, but don’t anymore since droids have significantly increased their internal storage. I recently uninstalled 12 apps and don’t miss them at all. I can reinstall them if necessary.

Method #4 Search and Delete. (OLD SCHOOL)
If you take alot of videos but cant find them….and you know they are taking up alot of storage, you can try searching for the video extensions:
if you take alot of vids and don’t know where they went, you can try searching for the extensions

If you take alot of pictures but cant find them….and you know they are taking up alot of storage, you can try searching for the picture extensions:

Method 4 1/2 Time to use a free cloud sucka!!!!
……IF you take tons of pics and videos, then its time to get them off your internal storage and onto your external SD card storage………
……IF your external SD card storage is used up….its time to get your pics and vids off your droid all together and onto something else, either a laptop, desktop,
……IF you do not know what a laptop or Desktop is, or don’t have one…..then its time to move your crap up to a free cloud such as Google Drive (15gig), or MEGA (15gigs (do not fall for the 50gig bait and switch)).
(***do not create multiple google accounts at once….spread it out over a few days, otherwise they will zap your account***).

Google Drive, and MEGA are free, unless you upgrade etc.
I use multiple accounts of google Drive, multiple Mega accounts, all for free. Flickr used to be free, no so anymore, they suck, do not use them, they will stab you in the back, see article “Flickr imposes 1,000-photo limit, drops 1TB storage for free accounts”
