    I'm running low on storage in my Lumia 550. I've a 32 gb sd card, but even that's full now. In the settings -storage-sd card there's a. 1.5gb others section which shows I've a folder called WUDownloadcache. I've no idea what It is. Should I delete it? Will deleting it affect the functioning of my device in any way??? Thanks.

    It should be fine to remove the 'WUDownloadcache' as juanitoriv said..
    Ive personally never done it but its just cache and shouldn't affect your phone. But this will only fix the problem temporarily.
    The size will grow again. I would suggest getting a 64GB Micro SD card to help ease the pain. Plus, it will work with any future phone you purchase. there are a lot of sales at the moment. :)

    Thanks a lot both of you!! That was reassuring.... I'm now going to do it right away....i was worried a slight little bit because the phone said that It may affect your phones performance. But now as both of you said I've nothing to worry about. And Yes, I'm getting a bigger storage soon. But that will be for a new phone. I'll stick with 32gb for my 550. By the second week of Jan, I'll be getting a super great 950xl for a super cheap price(20000 INR) so there I'll use a bigger sd card, 128gb. Thanks both of you! Happy holidays! Enjoy the winter!!!

    I just cleared 2gb myself with that WU stuff. Hint, open the folder and select about 7 folders to delete at a time. Much easier.

    It wont delete the folder! I saw in Storage app in Others section of my SD Card that WUDownloadCache has 928 MB! I viewed it in File Explorer app but shows folders with no files. And properties menu says 0files, 0folders, 0B. This is frustrating and confusing! Pls can somebody help me?
