    I am constantly getting notifications that my phone is out of storage. The biggest storage eater is Miscellaneous files, but when I go in there the files listed do NOT add up to the 6.33GB it says is there. I do have quite a bit of pictures, because every time I put them on an SD card they get corrupted, so there goes that method of storage. I have used several different SD cards, formatted each one before use, etc. I have hardly any apps installed. I am getting really frustrated and tempted to ditch my Galaxy S5 in the toilet.

    I am also running into this issue. I think it is from an unruly, wild app. What carrier do you have? I think there is a problem with my voice mail app from Verizon. There are hundreds of log files with XML information trying to access my accounts. Is this a bug or virus?

    I tried to connect my device to my computer, but I'm unable to offload files anymore. Please help.

    Try this, it may help.
    Open the phone app and dial
    Press "delete dumpstate/logcat".
    Hit "ok".
    Scroll down to the bottom of the page and tap "exit".
    This should open up some storage space. Good luck. 👍

    I have tried this and nothing changed. I have a Galaxy S5, never had this issue on my S3. I have a micro SD card, I've tried deleting files, pics, etc...to no avail.
    Now I have a software update and it says "No Available Space to Download".
    Does anyone have a real solution to this problem????

    #1 Go into settings, storage, and clear cached data by pressing and holding cached data indicator.
    #2 Go into settings, application manager, swipe to SD card and make sure all the boxes are checked.
    #3 Install and use application SD Maid.
    Delete old and unimportant emails.
    A screenshot of your storage setting, including SD storage, would help.

    Yea, heavy and a bottle of bread.
