    hi guys ( sorry for bad English) I just got htc one as well and the first thing I did was checking storage. and then I noticed 4gb being used by "other" . then I installed some apps and transferred about 1 gb of music in my phone and now the space used by "other" is around 6gb!!! I don't know what it is but I guess it rises as you use more space, can you please inform me if anyone found a solution?

    I found the answer why it is so....
    Download any of the file manager like Astro file manager or ES file explorer from playstore...
    then turn on "show the hidden item"....You will come across a folder named ".estrongs"...Open it....
    and then in the folder "recycle".....
    all those deleted items from your phone would be lying....
    Just delete it...and get ur spaces back...
    its exactly as not deleting items from recycle bin in the computers...
    Thank you...

    I can tell you are all wrong. That "other" section in storage is not app data, nor cache files, nor anything. Demonstration in a spreadsheet I wrote:

    The spreadsheet is no longer there. Could you send it to me, or maybe just give the key points right here? The "Other" on my AT&T HTC One m7 is currently at 16.06GB!!!

    I erased that spreadsheet more than a month ago, sorry. I sent it to HTC in a support ticket, and I did receive an answer, they said "other" folder is just system apps preinstaled and may not be deleted (even though i clearly stated that this is not credible at all). I am still suspicious though, but i gave up.

    Hi, I just bought a HTC Desire and noticed the same problem 6GB out of 8GB was taken up by "Other" and I have been searching the web so an answer too but didn't find much help. However the guys saying the "other" is data from games and OS are on the right track. The main culprit is social media apps, I deleted a chunk of data from Facebook and now my other folder is down to 3GB! Use the File Manager to located these files under the Android folder ... Cheers!

    The <Others> folder in my HTC Desire816 is taking up 6GB out of 8GB too, but I don't have facebook on my phone, and all other social media apps take up less than 1GB space out of 8GB(and this 1GB not even under others, it's under Miscellaneous). I've deleted my broswer cookies, caches, history, I've deleted all screenshots, uninstalled games, but to no avail.

    So I'm really at a loss now, my phone is warning me every single day that I've exceeded the 7.85/8.0GB limit annd I have to do routine cleaning but nothing helps bring it down to less than 7.6GB. I've uninstalled almost everything and all my apps/photos/videos/music are on my SD card. AND now the system is asking for 250MB free space in order to download the new system upgrade files. Help, anyone?

    I am facing exact same thing ...My phone started acting weird and slow and I started exploring and I found this .. Now interesting part is

    1. When I move photos to computer, the memory does not increase which is strange
    2. When I went ahead for backup and reset option, erase data from SD card is completely disabled !

    Any one faced the same issue ?

    Hello everyone, I also have space issues in the internal storage of my htc one m9 sprint. How do I free up space in the systems area, because it is what occupies the most space.

    Dear David Choudhary,
    Thanks a million for your solution. I could generate about 4 GB space by emptying the recycle bin in .estrongs
    god bless you

    Could not find the ".estrongs" I even used Astro File Manager and selected to show hidden extensions. What am I doing wrong? I am using a Galaxy S5. Wondering if that makes a difference. Please HELP if you can!

    I have the same problem on huawei mate 10 lite. Almost 25gb of data in other section which i believe those are the movie files that ive just deleted recently and they will disappear after 30 days. It is what i've found so far through foruma and so on. I believe that it is total b.s. situation and there has to be a way around this one.
