Have you saved a lot of photos, videos and other media files in your WhatsApp messenger? You can go to export those media files you want from your smartphone to computer, then delete them from your phone, this can free up the space for other data and storage.

Find and delete WhatsApp media files on the phone

If you are using an Android phone, you can use a file manager for Android to manage your files on the phone. You can choose ES file manage, MiXplorer, etc. Then go to the SD card/WhatsApp/Media, you can find all your media files for WhatsApp from there. WhatsApp photos, videos and more files can be found and deleted from there. Do back up those you like from mobile to computer before you delete them.

Recover WhatsApp media files on the phone

Normally you can uninstall and reinstall the app to recover chats and files in the most recent 7 days. However if you have deleted media files longer than that, you need to use a recovery program for Andriod. You may use the data recovery diamond.
