Default [Q] Problem with Phone Storage Space

I have a problem pertaining to the storage space of my phone. I have an HTC One 32gb and I currently have about 5 gb of free space left. When I go into root explorer and check the space of my external sd card. It's only used up about about 15 gb. So my question is where is the rest of the space. I know the system takes up about 4-5 gb or something like that, but it shouldn't take up 17 gb! Also, there's a folder named "data" in my root storage, not the sd card folder, that takes up around 18 gb but I'm not sure what the files are inside. How do I free up more space on my phone? Any help or explanation would be appreciated.
