I upgrade my D802 from Cloudy G3 1.2 to Cloudy G3 1.3. It was a clean install. Wipe everything, install from USB OTG, with TWRP 2.7.0.0
The ROM work very well, but i found a 21GB Sytem Data file in internal storage. I can't remove it. I try 3 different recovery to wipe the internal storage, use KDZ flash, factory update tool, and the file still in here.

Any idea how can i remove the junk? (PC can't see it, only ~10GB free space)

Thank for help.

Thank for help.

you completely sure you did clean install(wiped data/system/cache/dalvik) the system size looks like what would happen if you dirty flashed since it should only be about 8gb in size with cg3 1.3
