It says I have 6.42 GB used, which is correct (1.80 GB music + 1,16 GB apps + 1.06 GB other + 2.40 GB system). But why out of 14.56GB and not 16GB?
And what on earth is the 1.06 GB other? I want to erase this crap "other"...
Can someone tell me what's wrong with my storage?

16.000.000 bytes are ~15,26 GB, it is normal that the real capacity is different from the capacity written on the retail package, but 14,56 GB seem a little small, tho... But I don't think that there is anything wrong with your storage ;) maybe it's the recovery partition or something like that.

Its cached for apps and games, emails, temp internet files/cookies, etc. It will go up and down based on your apps and actual free space. If you have a large amount open, it will be larger, but as your installed apps or saved media gets larger it will free up as necessary.

I have reset my 8X twice now and it seems that every time I get it set up (with all apps reinstalled) my "other" data goes over 5GB - and this is within moments of having all my apps reinstalled... We are talking practically NO usage as of yet - as in opening apps, browsing Internet, no caching, no photos/videos/music, no social sites/apps used, or even logged in and updated... This is kind of ridiculous as 5GB+ is over a 3rd of my "usable" capacity which SEVERELY limits my typical activity/usage coming from WP7, where all my installed apps music and other settings had much room to spare... I had hopes that Portico would help resolve some of this "phantom" data, but to no avail... Has anyone had any further luck in figuring out where/how this "other" data is occupying our devices??? It has my phone at less than 400MB available and limits EVERYTHING that I do...
