Check out the Settings->Storage screen to see where all the storage is being used, maybe you have too many apps? If it is files, I would download ES File Explorer, it has some great utilities for finding and cleaning up your storage.

Use the app DiskUsage.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...iskusage&hl=en

It will tell you exactly where all your big files are.

with a root explorer see what is taking your memory in data/media, you may have nandroid backups for example.
