Question [Q] Galaxy Note - Internal Memory low

Hi. My Note's Internal memory (2GB) is almost (< 200MB left) but the applications only take up about 700MB. Using System Tuner I can see there is 1.06GB of "others". Do someone know what this "others" is and how to reclaim some space from it? Thanks in advance.

Check in system/lost+found.. Delete whatever is in that folder.

For storage cleaning try SD Maid from the market,
to check what is what and how many space it takes you could try Total Commander on PC (Alt-Shift-Enter displays folders size), or one of those Android apps (did not test any of them):

Thanks all for your help. I have tried SD Maid and found that most of the 1.06G "others" are in the logs folder. I have deleted them and reclaimed the space.
