I have HTC One S. When I open my Storage , it says : 4.10GB/6.07GB ; Apps: 220MB ; Other : 3.88GB ; Available: 1.97GB . That's after I restarted my phone on Backup & Reset. I did it several times , and it doesn't change. I'm clueless. I don't have any ideas on what could take that space , nor how do I clean it (properly ofc.). I was looking on the internet for a whole week, and still have found nothing useful. I have tried Clean Master. It doesn't make any difference in the "Other" category. Still the same. It is a old phone , my dad was using it for 1/1.5 years , but I don't think it has any influence on the current memory , after resetting the phone.

Only the "Apps" is clickable in Storage. In other words - I cant click on "Other" to see what's inside. I tried an app called "Disk Usage" , and it says: 1)When I click on app storage : Applications : 220MiB ; Data : 2236MiB ; Free space : 2016MiB . Now , 2)When I click on Storage card: Storage card: 10171MiB ; System data... Android... (and many more little stuff) ; Free space 10164MiB...

I'm not worried about my phone storage - on storage card. I'm worried about my internal storage , which is, I'm pretty sure , showed on app storage. The big thing : FREAKING 2236MiB FOR DATA? It has to be Data that's messing me up. Data is lost when resetting the phone with erasing al the data , right? I did it several times , but still , the category "Other" still doesn't change at all.

From this , kind of a bigger talk... well to read it is big, right? Never mind... Again , from this bigger talk , I actually only want to know the answers for two questions : What is on "Other"? and , How do I clean "Other"

Thank you for responding in advance.

  • @YouLiveOnlyTwice Do you see a sdcard/DCIM/.thumbnails folder? If so, delete it. – Manubhargav Dec 21 '15 at 18:40

It's actually the app data. For example, on my phone I see 184mb for Abbyy (that's dictionaries), and I'm 100% sure those 184 come of the downloaded dictionaries for the app.

To remove the data (I'm not responsible for the lost data in apps, because there will be such):

  • click on any of the checkboxes before the data chunk name
  • click select all in the top bar
  • click the recycle bin in the top bar
  • I do not see what you mean. I am not really into this stuff. Can you go step by step with me? 1)Open settings ; 2)Apps .... and stuff like that , please – YouLiveOnlyTwice Dec 20 '15 at 15:40
  • @You What? You know how to go to "other", right? So you go there and apply my steps. – nicael Dec 20 '15 at 15:51
  • The "Other" is not clickable.. – YouLiveOnlyTwice Dec 20 '15 at 21:28
