Storage used shows 5GB for Miscellaneous Files but individual files do not add to that

A

AC Question

System Memory for Miscellaneous Files shows 5.5GB used. However, the largest file is Amazonmp3 with only 18.75MB and all the others are much smaller. They do not even add up to a GB. What is going on with this and how do I fix it?

Depending on what device you have, the Misc Files may also include System files. Some devices separate the System files into their own category while others don't... thus, the Misc Files size will not always add up. On my Note 4 the Misc Files is a little over 8Gb and adding up the listed items don't add up to 8Gb. On my Note 10.1, the System files (System Memory) is separated out, so the Misc Files only show 1.1Gb, while the System Memory is a little over 5Gb.

As a side note, be careful what you delete in Misc Files as some of that is actual data.
