    I have 8.64gb of cached data and it's only a problem because I have 1gb of shave left on internal storage.

    Can i and should i delete this? I don't know how i have so much space being used. Photos and videos are all saved on SD card, as well as music.

    I don't have any huge apps.

    I am using file manager to try and increase my available space but am struggling.

    Can anyone help?

    Yes, you can safely clear the cached data without losing any personal information. Before you do that use the file manager and see if you can find out which apps created most of it. The usual suspects are apps heavy on media files, browsers or social apps.

    Turn off device. Press power, volume down and home key simultaneously. When the Samsung logo appears, release power button but NOT the other two. Eventually the little green robot will make an appearance, you can release all buttons now.
    He someti falls over and plays dead. Don't worry, briefly press power button and it should take you to a dark screen with small print on it. Carefully scroll down to wipe cache partition using volume down key, and authorise the operation with power button. Then reboot device. That should unclutter the device.
    You can also go to settings.. Device maintenance... Storage... Here you can delete all app cache without losing any data.
    As the Wise Javier said, if you find out what generated all this rubbish would be helpful...

    Just so nobody else makes the same mistake I made, it should be the volume UP, home key and power keys, not the volume down key
