Re: Miscellaneous Files usage
Everybody (with the possible exception of rooted users who have removed some stuff) has this issue to around 6 - 6.5GB or so; it looks like you may have a little extra. It's basically because of the way the phones are set up by the manufacturer and carrier. Press the miscellaneous files line and you'll see something like 6.3GB or so (my phone says 6.3GB) is for system memory (which I think is basically the Android system and related files), and the rest will be a listing of space used by various apps or processes on your phone.
