Fix: Xender Phone Storage Couldn’t Write No Permission
This error, as emphasized earlier is a storage error, which is commonly encountered on devices that have internal/phone storage configured as the default storage. Basically, the error-message indicates that your phone’s storage is unable to “write with permission”.
To fix this, all you have to do is to reconfigure your device’s settings; to allow your internal storage to “write with permission”. And we’ll be showing you a comprehensive step-by-step guide to do this.
Follow the steps below:
- Click on the ‘menu’ icon on your smartphone or tablet. This action will open a list of options, showing system apps, installed apps and other options.
- On the displayed window (showing apps), select the “Settings” app (a gear icon).
- Now, scroll down and locate Other Permissions or App Permissions; click on it. This will display a list, showing all installed apps on your device.
- On the list, scroll down until you see Xender and tap on it.
- In the next window, select the second option.
- Click on Accept in the prompted window to confirm action.
- Select the “Modify System Settings now” option.
- Apply changes and exit Settings.
Note: The above procedure varies, albeit slightly, depending on your device’s brand and build. Nevertheless, you’d still go through “Settings” and “Permissions” (and Storage Permissions on most Chinese brands), irrespective of your phone’s brand and build.
After the above reconfiguration procedure, the permission problem should now be fixed. You can now go back and launch Xender; select preferred storage location and start transferring – sending and receiving – files directly from/into your internal memory (phone storage) without hindrance.
