Re: other folder is gobbling space on and on

My "Other" folder is currently at 3.32 GB but I still have just over 20 GB of free space available. So I'm not overly concerned at this stage because I've still got plenty of free space left. I'd be concerned if I only had a couple of GB's left. 

 

 How much space is your "Other" folder using and how much free space do you have in total?

To be fair, it's not really a concern of Nokia's because they aren't responsible for the OS, Microsoft are. And according to the information I was able to glean from that other thread I linked to a lot of what is taking up space in the Other folder is cached data from applications, maps, emails & messaging and IE10. Clearing out the cache and history for the aforementioned applications should help to manage the space being used up.

Re: other folder is gobbling space on and on

Honestly, i found that the Other storage space isn't even a concern for me either. sure, it fills up, but if you don't need an app, you uninstall it, and it uninstalls the settings and installed application files with it. i haven't had to check the memory usage of my phone in quite a while, as its not a concern.
