    We need a Cleaner App that can remove temporary files, internet cache,cookies,history files, junk files, in one tap

    The built in gdr3 cache cleaner could stand to gain some improvements (why the heck is it so slow?).

    However, what you describe seems foolish- one tap to clear cookies? I know I hold onto my cookies as long as possible, since I use long passwords and IE doesn't support any type of autofill.

    That said, this pretty much already exists.

    Go to phone storage in gdr3. See that "internet explorer settings" button? They put that there just for you!

    The only thing that's missing is clearing map cache- but I don't know that this isn't one of the things the main delete button does. Also, with offline maps there is no map cache. Since nokia lets us move maps to our SD cards, I have all of USA downloaded and never have to worry about data usage or map caches again.

    Like I said in the other similar thread, the date change trick worked for me. I had ~12 gigs of "other/temporary" storage, both storage apps in the settings menu agreed on its presence. The "delete" option never worked. I changed the date to 2100 and viola, the temporary files shrunk down to just a few hundred mb that I could delete and I freed up 12+ gigs of space. No hard reset necessary. 1020 phone. Both "phone storage" and "storage check" agree.

    If you have auto-upload for pics then 'others' keeps increasing
    I though they fixed it already, WTF MS

    You keep talking about the cloud and **** up such basic feature, what a shame

    My "Other" Storage has been around 1.5 GB for several months now and my Lumia 920 is up to date. However, I never auto upload my pictures, watch many videos, or install/play games. I suspect the cache or temp files from these activities (especially videos) contribute heavily to the "Other" Storage problem.

    Also where is the cache stored or cleared out for apps like Facebook, Instagram, 6tag, etc. You know these apps that use a bunch of Internet data and waste battery like crazy while doing it. How is the cache cleared out for these apps? I'm sure they also contribute to "Other" Storage without a way for us to clear that cache. Because for a while Facebook Beta was one of the only apps I was using before I noticed my "Other" Storage start to grow past 1 GB. So I try to use the Me and People Hubs more often to avoid "Other" Storage from growing. Just some thoughts...

    You will have to reset your phone every 6 months because Microsoft are utterly useless and once you have bought one of their phones they don't give a monkeys; or they are just too incompetent to sort the 'Other storage' problem out.

    I also had that problem once.
    The only solution for such problem is to use a Class 10 MicroSd and move some apps from the phone storage to the sd storage.
    Now, my phone's "others" is now on 0 bytes and the lumia's animation is so smooth.

    Well.. My ,,other" is more then 8gb. How? - it's because music. Whenever i connect my 1520 (class 10sd) and transfer music from pc to phone storage/sd card all of that content go to ,,other".
    Tried formating sd card, try to transfer from phone storage to sd but i couldn't. Why? Because all music went to ,,other".
    Realy don't know what to do, pisses me off.
