    I just bought a black 2520 from ATT this weekend, and while I've mostly been loving it, there's been one thing that puzzles me-- though I haven't downloaded a new app or a file in two days, my available storage space seems to be slowly disappearing. Is this from temporary files, browsing history, or what?

    Go to charms bar settings change computer settings search and apps appsizes. There you can see how much the apps use

    I had a problem where when I was trying to sync a video from XBox Video, the download was failing but the storage was still being consumed. After a couple of tries the video app was close to 12GB. I uninstalled/reinstalled to get the storage back. Like DBDev says, check the app sizes.

    Has anyone else had problems trying to download purchased videos using Xbox video? I was going to leave this alone, but when I called Xbox support today, they told me to contact Nokia. I have about 10GB of available storage, but when I try to download a 4GB movie, it gets to 99%, then errors out and tells me I need to delete files to free up 5GB of storage. When I check app sizes afterwards, video has grown to 4+GB. Anyone know what is going on? I'll share the results of my call to Nokia as soon as I can.

    I just added up all my apps and they come to around 14GB, but it says I only have 5gb left.

    Tried to find a folder tree scanner, but the only one I found was so inefficient at scanning the system that I couldn't use it.

    According to Nokia, I need to refresh Windows. I'm sure this is part of the normal troubleshooting script, but what the heck, I'll give it a try. I also took the opportunity to ask about the sleep of death bug - the agent says that they are aware and a "higher authority" is working on a fix.

    It says I need to free up 2.6GB of space to run the refresh...oh, the irony :)

    So, after getting rid of Spartan Assault and Asphalt 7, I performed my first refresh. Afterwards, it took forever to install the updates, but in the end, I was able to download videos purchased in Xbox Video, move to the SD, and play from there. I did, however, encounter a different issue in that I appear to have lost the "rights" to download at least one of my movies... overall, though, it seems my storage/download issue is solved.

    By refresh do you mean a clean wipe and reinstall? Also, where do you go to find all of the apps you downloaded (so that if/when I wipe mine I'll know)?

    No, the option in Windows to refresh without touching files / preferences. I have my settings / apps backed up to SkyDrive, so after the refresh, everything came back the same as before.

    If you refresh settings its takes a ton of space. Run disk cleanup and system files clean up after. On same screen control panel

    Funny you mentioned that... I was just looking for this thread. I did the system refresh and noticed even more space was missing! After doing the disk cleanup I still only have about 5 gigs left... wtf is taking up so much space???
