(Using Android 6)
While trying to determine the size in memory taken up by a given App I got two widely differing values.
Settings. Applications. Application manager. Whatsapp.
gave 134 MB (App 63.90 MB, Data 71.18 MB), while Total Commander gave 900 MB.
How can I get the size taken up by all files that reside in my cell phone associated with a given App, which would otherwise not be there? I am pretty sure it must be closest to what TC gives, but I am not sure everything from WhatsApp is within its directory, and even less sure that it applies for a general App.
Settings give such a low value?
What is it counting as App and Data?
