I have been using Vivo Iqoo Z6 Pro with 8GB base RAM and 128GB storage for about a week now. This app called Media Storage used to take up almost no space on my phone. And just four days ago, I noticed that the app had taken about 5GB of space. I wasn't so sure then, so I waited a bit more. And today, the same system app has taken up more than 10GB of my space. I don't know what to do. I can't even reset it.


I connected my phone to my laptop and cleared the media module folder through ADB (adb shell pm clear com.google.android.providers.media.module), but still, the app shows no signs of taking less storage.

How do I clear the app data? Please help. Btw my media files and photos take up different storage, they have nothing to do with this.

  • Please include exactly the command(s) you have performed via adb.
