    Went to update an app in the Play store and it said my phone was out of space. This was weird, I have an SD card in, and its a 32gb phone. I have apps installed but not a ton of them. Upon further investigation I have a 20gb Cache partition. I rebooted the phone and did the clear cache and that didn't make a different.

    If I clear the cache on the storage screen will it clear it from all my apps? So will I have to login again everywhere, etc? Any idea which app is causing this? 20gb is crazy, I reset my phone 8 months ago or so.

    Just go into storage from settings click on the cache and select clear cache. It will clear it out of pretty much all the apps.

    Yes, it will delete the cache for all your apps.

    No, it won't delete any personal information

    It's difficult to know which app is caching so much data. You could go one by one in your settings - apps until you find it. The usual suspects are browsers, gallery and in general any app heavy on media files.

    You can take a look at this guide about cache.

    Get this app. It's fantastic for helping you to quickly find what is consuming so much space.

    Also, clear cache does not necessarily clear ALL of the cache. For example, with the DiskUsage app I found that the Android Central app had a 600 MB cache! You have to delete the cache from within this app. It's the only way.
