    Some of that "other" data may be files you want... It's a catch-all category for anything the phone is not seeing by type and could contain documents or media files you want, even pictures.

    At a guess, is the large "other" file on your SD card? It probably needs to be re-indexed. Unmount the card, power down and leave it in... After reboot, open any programs that would read the card: photos, music player, video player, office, pdf reader, etc. Check that "other" category and see if it shrank significantly.

    Try plugging into a computer (Windows 8 & up) and running this App. I find it re-indexes my files automagically. Windows Phone app for desktop | Windows Phone (United States)

    ​You could try deleting "temp" files and see how that impacts "other," but I'm guessing it won't be a significant amount...
