Smart Switch Saying Not Enough Space? [Solved]

I'm helping my mom switch from a Samsung Galaxy S5 to her new Galaxy S23. I'm trying to move her files wirelessly through the Samsung Smart Switch. It displays 'Not enough space on this phone.' Can anyone tell me about some fixes to solve this problem?

If your new Samsung phone has enough storage space, this problem may be caused by your old phone not having enough storage space to complete functions such as backup. There are other possible reasons for this issue.

1. The Smart Switch may have a caching issue or a software bug that causes it to incorrectly evaluate your device's storage space.

2. In Smart Switch, you may have selected the wrong storage location, such as an internal storage that is nearly full instead of an available external SD card or cloud storage. Check and change the storage location settings.

3. Smart Switch may not have sufficient permissions to access or write to the storage space. Make sure you have granted the Smart Switch the necessary permissions and check the device's storage permission settings.

4. Sometimes, system updates or firmware issues with your device can cause compatibility issues with Smart Switch. Try updating your device to the latest system version or firmware version and see if that resolves the issue.

5. Smart Switch version is too old. If you are using an older Smart Switch version, it may not be compatible with your device or evaluate storage space correctly. Try updating Smart Switch to the latest version and see if the issue is resolved.

6. There is really not enough storage space on the device. While this may sound simple, make sure you check the actual storage space of your device.
