You can use the app SD Maid to see what your biggest files are and where they are located. I'm sure there's many ways to search and find them, that's just a real easy way. Good luck

safestrap enabled, Hyperdrive driven
I have a few apps running on the SD card. All my music, pictures and videos are on there as well as well as my tibu backups. there's like nothing on the actual phone besides apps I couldn't move, stock apps and the like.

I'll try out both of these as soon as I get some free time today.

Another thing you could try is rootappdelete. It allows you to delete stock bloatware that you *probably* don't use. I used it to uninstall all the Verizon and Samsung bloat. It works, but the menu always says unsuccessful at first. The option becomes available to manually override the process, which allows the removal. I think I free a couple hundred mb using that. Another thing is Clean Master. I freed about 3Gb when I first used it. It can clean a lot of cache data (not harmful) to free up even more space. Hope that helps.

Cheers
