    Hello everyone,

    You must have noticed, Asphalt 8: Airborne became a freeware, so I opened the Store to download it. Followed by which I got a notification that there is no storage space available. I went to the Settings > Storage Check to find that Media and files is consuming 3 GB of space.

    Actually, I don't have anything specifically as media, and whatsoever I have, is in my SD card. Requesting a good explanation for the same.

    Thank You.

    I imagine if you scroll over, the majority of that 3GB is actually the notorious Other.
    My Media and files shows 1.6GB and 1.3GB of that is due to Other.

    'Other' is consuming about 900 mb and system is taking up 1.9 GB

    One more culprit I think I found, Email + Contacts. I had my Mail sync settings set to 'Download mail for any time'. I guess that costed me around some 700 mb. Now I tried to change the sync settings, for it retrieve to mail from the past week, but still the space occupied by Email + Contacts has not shrinked. Please help!

    Yes, I used to have a lot of email, but after I changed the Sync settings, they are no longer visible. (But my guess is that they are still taking up space in my memory)

    Can't say about lot of contacts, I can somewhat, about 50 people, yes with user photos.
