    So my samsung galaxy core prime tells me that my storage space is running low so I click on the warnining and it takes me to the storage page in settings.
    When I look at what is taking up so much memory the miscellaneous files are taking up almost half of the storage space, (The phone has a max capacity of 8.0 gb) but when I open up the miscellaneous files it lists only 40.0 kb of data! Even when I delete the files and restart my device it keeps all 3.5 empty gigabytes. Help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    The files accounting for the space being used as misc may not be files only located in a folder named misc. This can be misleading. Misc files could appear almost anywhere including temp folders and misc app content folders. The easiest thing to do would be to find a quality cache cleaner from the Play Store and step by step it thru the process to free as much space as possible from your device. There are also several guides out there for increasing your storage safely, and many of them can be found here at AC from the search bar. I would caution against any memory saver apps as that is a different type of memory and they typically aren't worth it, and I'd also caution against automated apps for managing memory. Some, not all, of these files that you will come across may have some value to you and an automated app will take nothing into consideration.
