  88. Had this fault only with apps moved to SD-Card. Methods 1 and 3 did not help. By chance I deinstalled CleanMaster app (for some other reason) and at once everything was O.K. again without any further action. In my case CleanMaster should have been responsible.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Had been searching for a solution for this issue since quite a few weeks. I'm so glad that method of "unmounting the SD card" worked well for me, at least for some apps that was on my phone. Hadn't got enough time to update all of them but certainly will check for updating the rest of them soon... A million thanks, guys.....

    Actually since a recent upgrade of the software of my android lollipop these problems are arising. Sometimes storage error sometimes error 963 sometimes error 907 and sometimes play store error RH 01. I tired of all this. Really repenting why I updated my software. Everyday some new issue.All my game progress is lost. I had to uninstall so many apps. I transferred all apps to SD card and now this issue
