- yeah but why is market saying that I have no space? It's not that dynamic as it should be...
it's the biggest bug in microsoft since history i guess.
It's like the biggest dustbin you've ever seen, wow great, but once it's full, there is no way to empty it. LOL i guess i'm f*ked with my HTC 8s.02-25-2013 02:56 PM
- wow Shrink Storage cleaned 1GB from other into free space
music & videos 3.08MB
apps 1.79 GB
free space 416.20MB
music & videos 3.08MB

- Didn't make a dent for me, did what it said in terms of filling up and clearing phone storage but my 'other' remains at 2.3gb and I can't install an app that's 100mb (Pac Man DX, uninstalled to make room for something else) even though I have 400mb+ free phone space. Urge to hurl phone against wall increasing.02-26-2013 07:09 AM
- Don't be anxious about the app. The only thing it does is the next:
step 1. Fill up your complete Phone memory with rubbish.
step 2. Because of this, Windows Phone notices a shortage on memory and on this way the (not so) dynamic memory 'system' frees up some space, for this to happen you will have to restart your Phone.
step 3. delete the rubbish memory again using the app, and you will notice windows Phone had deleted some cache, or whatever it is.
Note that the app is fully working legit without any danger for your files. The dynamic system is not working properly, it should work without the trigger. I hope the update will cover that.02-26-2013 08:50 AM
- my other space randomly cleared its self of nearly 5 gigs last night which is freaking awesome, i went from 7 gigs of other to 3 gigs of other. I wonder if alot of people are going to start seeing their other deplete all around the same time if we all got our phones at around the same time. i got mine in the mail 3 days after it was released. The cache which holds your app data is on a timer and will only hold your app data for so long before its obvious you dont intend to install a particular program again.
I think i lost all my other data at once because, obviously, when i first got the phone i went on a power trip and installed and deleted tons of apps. Over the next few weeks i believe i should see my "other" start to clear itself out bit by bit as previously installed apps begin to reach the max amount of time they can stay in the reserve. It makes since. It all just built up at once and once the timer cycle has started you will begin to see your other stay at a minimal level. I will track my other from here on out and see if this makes sense.
If so its exciting actually.02-26-2013 02:46 PM
- Can you remember what date you got your phone? I got mine November 9th, and my 'Other' allocation is currently 4.47GB. It usually sits around 4-5GB, though once I did somehow manage to get it down to around 2.5GB - I couldn't tell you how though. Clearing my Bing and IE history used to clear up some of it, but it doesn't seem to make a difference anymore. I have about 10GB free at the moment (I'm usually pretty frugal with storage), so it's not critical for me, but I'd certainly like to minimise it.02-26-2013 06:51 PM
- I've got really bad news for all of you. I have owned a Zune 30, Zune 80, Zune HD, Windows phone 7, and now a Windows Phone 8. This problem has existed in ALL of them. And even worse, you can call a million times, read a million complaints and posts about it, and Microsoft pretends it is the first time they have heard of it. On the Zunes, it got so bad that deleting videos or anything, wouldn't make the storage drop at all (forget about Other/reserved). There is a major issue and they will just tell you it is firmware when you first call. I laugh each time and ask "10 GB of firmware???". Then they change excuses to, "you must have synced it with another computer other than your main cpu". No matter how much you deny that and tell them no way, they blame it on that. Sadly I have heard this B.S. for 7 years now, going all the way back to the original Zune. They pretend they know nothing about it, no matter how long threads like this get. And there were the same threads on the Zune forums also. I have no idea what needs to be done to force them to acknowledge this and then fix it. Best case scenario right now, is WPCentral force the issue with their contacts. Otherwise, between the Xbox Music/Video, Xbox Live mobile, and this issue, Windows Phone is going to die a slow death.

I had an 820 and it sufferent from massive SD card issues, the only way the SD card(s, I tried a few) worked was after a hard reset and the data copied using the WP7 Sync app, if I tried to drag and rop music / picture via explorer it just crashed. If I turned the phone off, took the SD card out (it had been formated by the phone) then copied music / pictures using explorer and an SD card adaptor and explorer into the relevant folders it would copy fine but when I put it in the phone I couldn't see anything and the 'other' section would show up as the total size off all the pictures / music I had copied onto the SD card previously. On a side note if I wanted to copy across even 1 song I had to go through the whole syncing process. Nightmare. Now I have a 920 and the sync / copy issues has gone which leads me to believe that the use of an SD card is the problem.
Also have you ever seen an Android phone if you take out the SD card and have installed apps on it, my wife and I both had Sony Ericsson Arcs and it would go mental if you turned it on without the SD card, not work the hassle.
I also don't believe that the 'other' section is truely dynamic, I believe it's a bit like a temp folder which doesn't manage itself very well, I was told by my phone it had run out of space many time but the other section was 2 / 3GB is size, clearly not dynamic!02-28-2013 04:26 AM
- Yikes, that sounds really bad. I only purchased WP device a couple of months ago and didn't know about this issue in depth. I've heard about it, but I didn't think it's related to practically every WP device out there. I'm using SIM-Free Lumia 800 (latest 7.10.8858 version of WP7.8) and I noticed my "other" space climbing ever since I got it.
As you can see, I don't have much stuff on my phone. It's driving me nuts!
So far, the phone has been great, but what the ****, Microsoft? What the f%*king s**t is that? Why isn't there an update for this?
I don't want to keep resetting my phone all the time.02-28-2013 09:08 AM
