    On my Nokia Lumia 520 I'm trying to clear up space on my phone by deleting the temporary files. I've already deleted my browser history but I still have 289.48 MB that won't delete. Every time I press the delete but it says "Deleting temporary files..." at the top of the screen but whenever I go back to check on its progress like it says it appears that I haven't done anything. And every time I go to another page or anything I always have to press the button again. It's been this way for about a week and a half now and I've been trying to do an update to one of my games but I can't because of tis problem. Please tell me what's going on?

    Sounds like a lock on a file isn't being released. Try doing a Soft Reset (hold Volume Down + Power button for 10 seconds) the phone will reboot, and hopefully then you can delete the temporary file(s).
