Yes, correct. Copy your data to PC.
Then do it using advanced wipe in TWRP recovery: Wipe\Advanced Wipe - be shure to check correct partition to wipe, wipe, reboot.
Of course, you had to have TWRP recovery installed. And don't forget to make full backup in recovery.
Also you can search for big hidden files using file explorer like Root Explorer and delete them.

He does not use a custom recovery afaik -
// Nexus 5 (D821) // Liquid // UBER //
// Note 3 (SM-N9005) // AOSP ROM of variety // Lean or temasek's Kernel // - Dumped. No more Samsung

I'v just installed from Google Play app Storage Analyser. It shows folders and files by size. So you can see location of big files and delete big files.

Look what i found:

The whole /data partition is counted for internat storage
In the root of /data there r 2.x gb and in /data/media/obb there are 6gb (some gameloft related things )

Weird...
