    hello! i went into device maintenance under settings and tapped the Fix Now/Optimize button, which then showed me the status of all the actions being performed- one of these was the deleting of files- it deleted 1-2 GB ! i couldn't get any details as to what exactly this deleted, and 1-2 GB seems like a lot for cached and temp files- does anyone know exactly what gets deleted? i did some Googling but didn't find any results that gave any details..

    thanks!

    It's not that unusual for cache this size to build up, especially when using apps like YouTube, Netflix, Snapchat, other social media apps, browsers, etc. that need to cache bigger/many files.

    Things like thumbnails, preloaded videos and images, preloaded text, posts, etc. But no need to worry, actual content in apps won't get deleted.

    ok, thanks.. i'm assuming the Fix Now/Optimize actions do not touch personal data like pictures, music, videos, documents etc?

    Correct, it should not delete any data that are not temporary files or cache.
