    Has anyone used this, and is it worth it? States it could clean up 4.2GB, but what is it going to clean? My cache files that may contain my Google Now information and my downloaded (offline) music library? I don't see a way to tell what it is going to go through, and, the little "Powered by Clean Master" worries me a little.

    Thoughts?

    What it does is basically the equivalent of doing a Clear Cache Apps in Storage Settings plus the option to delete files in downloaded folders and other really unnecessary files.

    Well my thoughts are actually, you're not using an S7 edge, so why asking it in an S7 forum? Especially since that isn't something normally found on an S7 Edge.

    He's got 64GB memory and the S7 was never sold with 64GB. Unless you're trying to say he's got a 32GB SD card with adoptable storage on, which I am not sure is accessible on Nougat beta.

    It actually is an s7 running the nougat beta. The 64 is showing that it's running at 64% optimization level.



    Nevermind, your right it must be a Note 7

    To clarify, 2nd picture says 54GB of 64GB storage.

    I'm not saying we don't want to help the OP. Rather it's difficult to give an answer on a specific feature that's not available on the specific phone this forum caters to.

    My advice is to turn the Note 7 in due to recall.

    I don't know where the OP lives, but there appears to be 64 GB S7 phones out there in other countries.

    That would be new if it those do exist. One of the critics against the S7 throughout its existence was the fact that they only offered it in 32GB. Europe, US, and Asian reviewers all noted that. And then the Note7 came out with 64GB. Unless they offered those random China and Korean variants we don't know of usually.

    I have no idea. I was just seeing it on Samsung website, shows both 32/64 GB and says memory varies by country.

    To clarify, I am running an S7 Edge, with nougat beta, on Verizon, with adoptable storage used to increase my storage. Sorry I didn't give the specifics, but didn't realize the specs of my device would change the information I was seeking.

    If it was a different phone, possibly different set of bugs, different software. And that did not come with the S7 out of the box (at least most S7 I know has a different software for cleaning), and we didn't know you were on the beta.

    Anyway, most advice to try and disable anything by clean master on the phone. Or just not activate it. However we could assume cleaned this one out (no way of really knowing) and paid CM so they only licensed the cleaning software without the hacks (like how Kaspersky and Bitdefender license their engines for other AV companies to use). As far as I see, no harm in trying, unless the adoptable was activated via ADB?

    I gotcha. Yes, was enabled via ADB. My crux of the question really is whether I would lose cached data that was actually of use to me, like music or search history. I may just try it to see what the result is. All my data is backed up anyway.

    Cheers!

    I've used it and never lost anything important. Also on Nougat beta.
