Default [Q] Internal Storage Questions

Hey forum crawlers, I have a question about hte internal storage. I'm using the Highway 55 rom and I'm using the MF9 bootloader btw.

I kept getting notified that I'm running out of space and such. Well, when I checked on the storage breakdown, I apparently have around 7 GB of 'miscellaneous' files. When I click on it, the largest file is the 20 MB of thumbnails for the gallery.

What gives? Does anyone know what is up with this?
Yeah, so's your mom.

Your nand backups are probably stored on your internal memory instead of your external sd card. That is usually the biggest culprit. Also, cloud storage also ends up on internal so that also could be the problem. Lastly, if you downloaded any movies from the watchon app they will install on internal unless you specify external.
