Default Dna miscellaneous storage high

My miscellaneous data is at 7gb and I have about 2.5 gb available... Does this seem about right? I do use titanium backup ( so all apps plus data are backed up) and a stock rom saved also.
Should I even be concerned with available storage..

When you changed Android version your file location of all your storage changed. So now you have a copy of your entire storage in another location. I recommend deleting things you don't need or deleting the copy in a root file Explorer.

Update.... Google play music was taking up about 1gb of storage... So I'm happy with 3.5 gb available... Upgrading phone soon anyway

2.5 is about right with the backups and music on there. Download DiskUsage on the Play store. It really gives a good perspective of where your stuff is.

How big of a pain was the RUU? I tried when the phone was updated back in December and I could not get it to take?.??
Perhaps I'm slow... Any easy place or in you could help me with?
