comment Can access service mode in Samsung Galaxy S3, but there is no menu
What is it you want to achieve? Your question looks a bit cryptic to me, sorry (and I'm not the only one).

comment Why is “Android OS” uploading so much data?
That could in fact explain the differences then: The Dashboard shows the amount of data stored (not transferred). So if the Wallpaper app uploads the new background image every time it's changed... You get the idea. In that case: restricting background data for "Android OS" might help (and make backups happen on WiFi only).

comment Simplest way to transfer files from PC to Android device (wireless)
Again: You've not "been using", you're the author of it. You've got to disclose your involvement if any.

comment File servers for Android?
It's OK to name your own app. But it's a rule to disclose your involvement. Sure you found it good if you wrote it – otherwise you'd have to hit yourself for bad coding.

comment Android phone memory used by unknown pictures and videos
You first need to find out where exactly they are located. Other questions tagged "storage" or internal-storage might prove helpful here, e.g. View internal Storage use or What can I do to manage my phone's internal storage?

comment What are radio_dump .bin files? Can I delete them?
I don't think your Windows computer will need them. </Sarkasm> Could you give a few more details, e.g. where exactly they are located? As your question is phrased currently, it's hard to answer.

comment How frequently is it okay to let the battery discharge fully or as low as possible?
It means there isn't a "connect too often" – but you should avoid full discharge whenever possible.

comment adb pull /data fails
I haven't ever tried that, nor do I know exactly what that flag is for – so I cannot tell. (Btw: if you found the answer useful, you're welcome to "upvote" it (the SE way to say "thanks") – or "accept" it when it solved our issue ;)
