    From looking at your last screen shot it says applications is holding 14 gigs. Have you checked your apps to see if one is sucking up storage? Because that's a lot. The most storage an app uses on my phone is like 300 or 400 mb

    Your application data shouldn't be that much. This is mine and I have some pretty heavy duty apps that are big in mb

    Another good app to help track down space usage is DiskUsage:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...iskusage&hl=en

    It showed me that the Downloader system app was using 1.5GB of cache on my Note 4.

    Thats precisely the point,, adding up the space used up by the apps gives off a number nowhere near 14 GB !

    Check for yourself ! it doesnt make any sense ! there are at least 6 gb missing in "ghost space"

    Maybe cloud storage (photos, videos, docs, etc) getting synced back to your phone.

    That's a very handy app to find where you can quickly figure out what is taking a lot of space and delete it on the spot.

    Thanks for sharing!

    You're welcome. I look at it every so often to look for surprises (e.g., Downloader using 1.5GB of cache).

    thank you for your help , but why would this appear as "ghost" inaccesible space and why does it keep on growing daily with no way for me to delete it ?

    less than 140mb of free space left right now ...

    I had this happen as well. I have everything backed up so I did a system reset. Sorry.

    Maybe check thumbdata files/folders in the DCIM folder of device storage. Same thing happened to me a couple of years ago on a Samsung Tab 2 7.0 and those files were the culprit.

    This was another case where the DiskUsage app showed me large usage - thumbnails:

    Yep, that's a great app. Been using it on all my devices for a couple of years.
