    There are many thread about temporary files and the "Others" files issue. Search the forums and you'll find them.

    It's nothing about the Other, is about the Temporary Files, you can delete them with the app Lumia storage check beta, or something like that, just download it from the marketplace.

    Can't really figure out what to do except a hard reset, which is painful.

    Not sure if this would be of any help, but even though you are able to delete the temporary files in the Storage Checker, I find out that it still leaves some temporary files behind. What I do is by going to Internet Explorer and delete the history, but be careful with this, this also clear your passwords from the websites visit...That saves me a few a extra space aswell...

    It is really disappointed. I searched some article from google that the mircosolf realised this problem since Fed 2013......is it still no solution for this problem?? instead of factory reset??

    On my Lumia 620 temporary files are 1.7 Gb and I cannot free anything. IE history is cleaned, storage check app doesn't help. Is the only solution to hard reset the phone?

    hello i am using lumia 620 and i also had temporary file problem....the main problem is it is increasing in size day after day, also after deleting history from internet explorer.....i also used storage check beta but it was unable to delete those increasing temp files.....i also used shrink storage but there was no improvement......at last i've got an application named storage cleaner....it is awesome....i had temp file 114 mb which is much less than others who wrote previously about temp file problem....but it is now decreased to 63 mb......i hope who has temp files like 800 mb 1gb or bigger will find this application very effective it is available in windows phone market..............best of luck guys........
