Hi guys !
I ( along with lots of other users ) am facing a big problem with Xperia L. There's some kind of memory leak with the device.
The default storage space for appsdata is 1.57 GB. However, for some unknown reason, the free space & appsdata does not add up to 1.57 GB
This problem is not just restricted to me. A lot of users are also facing this problem. The problem is temporarily solved by factory reset, but it reoccurs again after some time.

I have attached two screenshots.( took a screenshot when i encountered this problem first time & ALSO, took a screenshot after factory reset when i still had this problem )


Sony staff hasn't yet responded to this problem in this thread despite the fact that it was first reported about a month ago !!
( Google this " Xperia L issues" & click on the first link. [ can't post the link as i am a new user } )

I'd also experienced this issue
try this method, it's work.
you need a rooted phone to run this app Download
Install and Open Menu>Batch Actions>Scroll to Manipulate data>Run clear cache for user & system apps>Tick check
Reboot your phone
Check your storage again

Other app doesn't work like clean master because those apps no longer have access to clear cache for system apps.

Temporal solution is to turn off Walkman app n settings and not to install Spotify, because these players cause the problem. I don't know if the other music apps do the same, I didn't check it.

Thanks a lot for the suggesstion. I'll try it out in a week or so when i get my HDD back ( so that i can take a backup )
Any non-root suggestions till then ??

When you turn off the app it stops the memory sucking, it doesn't give you the memory back. It just prevents further consumption.

ahh.. I didn't know that..
I have a small ( probably silly ) doubt here : when i went to Settings>apps to force stop the walkman app, i noticed there were 2 walkman apps in the all apps tab( one was 140 kb & other was 4 mb approx. ). Which one should i force stop ??

Should i do this every time i switch on my phone ?

Thanks a lot.

Don't force stop them, turn them off, it's the button to the right of force close button. And to be sure, turn off both Walkman apps, one of them is music visualisation.

chrome
no need to force stop walkman or album..just stop using chrome..use other browsers like opera or firefox..then the internal memory wont decrease..also dont use official facebook app..:
