Default [Q] My Files Device Storage.."others" taking up so much space??

Hi all,
I noticed that under My Files the device storage is taken up mostly by "others" (the blue portion of the meter). I've cleaned up thumbnail files, cache (downloaded and used a cache cleaner) yet I still can't figure out what or where these "other" files are! I know bloatware is roughly around 6 gb, could that be the issue?

The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it. Chinese Proverb

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
