Default [Q] System size 10GB!!!

Hello everyone,

i'm a happy (?) owner of an Ativ S, the phone is GDR3 and fully unlocked.

I'm pretty satisfied other then for continous storage problems. My system has grown to almost 10GB now!!! Temp folder is pretty normal and under control

around 500mb... I don't want to believe that the only way to solve is to hard reset. Any good backup options to suggest if i got no choice pls?

My thought is that somehow youtube stored video cache somewhere in system folders because it grew everytime i watched a video.

Thanks

That's possible, yeah. Have you tried my Storage Cleanup app yet? The current version doesn't support cleaning up app storage, although I plan to add that "soon".
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.


Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

Yes, i tried but it only found 300mb of deletable stuff.
So if i format the phone and then Watch a couple of YT vids it Will fill up again?

Well, you could always just try deleting the YT app. That will free all the storage it is using. You can re-install it afterward (you'll probably need to re-enter your account details or whatever, but that's it).

I already did that and nothing changed, stord Memory management is awful on wp8.
I'm so upset, instead of enjoy the phone i have to lose time finding the way to male it work.
The formating is not in issue per se, the problem is Will it fullfil again and again and again?

Try setting the date to anything over 30 years from now (2044+). Let the phone sit for at least 20 minutes, then check your storage and change back to "Set Automatically". I did this and got my temp files down to almost nothing. It may work for system files as well. Its worth a shot and a lot easier than a reset.

Let us know.
