    Hi all,

    I just did a storage check on my Lumia 920 and in details section of apps, it showed me that 10GB is being used by App data and 7.5 by Apps.
    What is the difference?
    Is there a way to clear this App Data?

    Thanks,
    Nilesh

    Apps are what you install from the Store. App data is data that is used by apps, files that may not be recognized by WP. This data could be saved games, video formats and so on. To clear this you usually need to go into the app delete the files that are being used.

    With WP8.1 you get a better idea of where the data is by using Storage Sense.

    to remove/clear data you have to uninstall app then reinstall or do one thing go to date & change year from 2014 to 2100 then go to phone storage & clean temp files & also clear temp files in storage check in settings & in end change year to 2014.
    Note by this your data counter will be start from scratch.

    Nahh.. I've deleted every single conversation thread and it still stays at about 200... Deleting pictures, videos also doesn't help much.

    If you've deleted everything, how about a quick reinstall of the app? Might solve your problem.
