If YouTube Shorts says, "The last recording failed," you may have run out of storage. To solve this problem, you can delete some long-ago videos, unwanted files, etc., to make space for the new video.

  • To delete videos on an Android phone, open the Photos app > drag a video you want to delete to the bin.
  • To delete videos on iPhone, go to Photos > tap on the video you want to delete > tap on the bin sign.
  • To delete videos on PC, go to the video folder > right-click on the video you want to move > click Delete.

If you can't record a video for YouTube Shorts after making space for it, try to record it with EaseUS RecExperts and upload it to YouTube. To do this, download EaseUS RecExperts from the below button first.
