    Hi.
    Yesterday I hard reset my HTC 8x with WP 8.1 D.Preview installed. Before resetting my system files was about 2.78 Gb. After resetting it shows 4.56 !! No App installed. I tried resetting about 8 times!! but only 4.56 Gb even without any app. Please help me!

    My Phone is FC ( Free Carrier )

    I would suggest ignoring the system file size after the hard reset. This is what I usually do.

    1) Hard Reset
    2) Complete initial setup steps & set apps to auto update
    3) After the first restart (automatic restart after 10 seconds dialog) I let the phone boot completely
    4) Force app updates and let all apps get updated
    5) Storage sense >> tap on phone >> let the calculating stop
    6) Temporary files >> delete
    7) Hit back and wait till the space is calculated again

    Did the space reduce? Also which carrier version of HTC 8X are you on?

    I don't think there is any problem. I just checked mine (Lumia 920) and my system is 5.90gb. I think now it shows you the correct number

    Mine usually goes down after clearing the temp files. May be it just includes the bundled apps that come with the ROM, depending on carrier/country variants
