    Hi, my ipad mini tells me on screen it is over capacity by 1.7GB, but when I look on the ipad there is 7.0GB left of 13.7, I've hardly a thing on it 77 apps, 30 photos, no music. I've even taken the apps down to 30 but still telss me it's over capacity. Is there something wrong here?

    THanks

    If I may ask - what is it you are trying to do that results in this message? Is the message from iTunes, the AppStore or another app?

    Hopefully, if we know what is giving you the notice, we can help determine how to help. Thanks.

    Are you trying to music, movies or pictures on it in a mass transfer? Cause, the only way I can think is that you're trying to put more stuff on the Mini (during your sync) than the Mini's got room for.

    So, check to see what media/files you've got checked to sync over to the Mini. Odds are - you're trying to put more stuff on it than it's got room for. You'll have to uncheck things until you don't get that message any more.

    At least, that's how I think your problem will be solved (as I've never gotten/seen this message on a sync)... :)

    Thanks, but surely it can take more then 5 apps, 40 songs, no photos, no audio books and no anything else? Which it has on at the moment and won't let me add anything else at all, which can't right?

    That is all it will allow me to have on it, before it says it is over capacity.

    On your mini, go to settings/usage to see how much storage space (not memory) you have and how you are using it

    There is 15.0GB of stoage, 6.1 available, which must equate to at least one song!?, which I have tried to sync but no music appears.

    It also says 9.3GB available 'on this ipad' when looking at the itunes sync screen.

    Can't fathom what he issue is! My son has same ipad mini with tonnes more stuff on than mine with free space to boot!

    Hi Toottoot​ - if not already done, I would suggest a 'Reset' of the iPad (directions quoted at bottom below) and then check the usage; also, let us know if you are a big 'renter' of movies & TV shows - some have reported that these might not be deleted correctly after their expiration dates and may take up a LOT of unlabeled usage - let us know your results - good luck! Dave :)
