While opening the files in Whatsaap, I have recently started receiving message - Download failed: FileIOException: There is not enough free memory on the file system to complete this action.
I tried deleting my files & re-installing Whatsapp but the problem persists. Kindly help.

Welcome to the forums.
It sounds like you are running low on application memory on your device. Have a look at the article below to see how to free up memory.
Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other questions.

I see this is an old post. Something I picked up on my curve 8520 was the same message as you guys were getting. As I googled the question and saw some answers I remembered I had an issue. 1. I had taken the battery out and removed the memory card to put in a PC to retrieve files (which worked fine). During one whatsapp conversation I got the msg "memory card disabled", I ignored it cause I was still able to save chats etc. I also thought it could've been cause I chatted whilst my phone was plugged into the PC (mem card gets automatically disabled). What I think may have happened is when whatsapp couldn't see the mem card (from either situation) it automatically changed the storage location to device instead of media card. When I opened whatsapp and chaged that setting back to 'media card' the problem was solved.(settings, media settings, save media on). If it is set to device it will show that there is a space issue.
Hope this helps
