A couple of days ago, I started getting the notification message.....
"You are running out of storage space, some system functions may not run".....
So I did the usual......
Wiped cache and dalvik.
Attempted to move some of my 'user installed' apps from internal storage.
Considered using SD Maid or similar.
Even considered fully wiping my phone and re flashing the ROM.
Then, just by chance, I went into 'manage apps' and browsed the app file sizes......
Found the culprit straight away....

GOOGLE DRIVE.....808Mb

Deleted it and the message disappeared......
WTF........why is this app over TEN times BIGGER than ANY other app installed on my phone......what is it about it that it needs to be that size?
The dropbox, mediafire and CX apps don't even come close to being that size........
