    I am always running out of space, even though I put apps, pics and music on the SD card to free up internal storage. Then I delete said pics from internal storage. After awhile, it will be low on space again. I have 360 Security app to clean cach, and old junk. Also, it features a virus scanner, both of which I run routinely. So then I go to settings>storage, which I included in this post. First I clear the downloads and cach. Then I click on Misc. files which seems to take up most of the space. I am wondering if I can safely delete these files? I know I need the System Data, I am stumped. Any help or advice is most appreciated!!

    Hi Crazy Auntie, welcome to the forums! Those 3.24gb belong to system files and there's not much you can do about that. There's nothing big under miscellaneous that you can delete. You should consider uninstalling some apps that you don't use much. Unfortunately 8gb of internal storage can get very claustrophobic when you need more than 4gb only for your apps.

    Do you have much carrier bloatware that came preinstalled?

    I am not Javier, but yes, bloat ware is factory or carrier installed apps that are usually not needed to run the phone, such as Madden Football/Facebook /PGA Golf /etc....

    I know what you mean now..Don't you have to root your phone to uninstall them?

    Well, you need a rooted phone to uninstall them, but you can DISABLE it, go to: Settings > Apps/Applications > All > (Click the app you don't use) > Disable > Accept.

    Attention: Android Central nor it's users won't be responsible by it's damage to the phone, I recommend doing some research first and then doing the right decision.
