    Storage Check details that my Lumia 521 has apps which I have previously 'uninstalled', such as:
    Freddy 155 MB
    AE Sudoku 98MB
    Solitare 56MB
    and many more
    I've also 'removed' my maps previously downloaded to the phone, and downloaded them again to the SD card, but Storage Check indicates I still have 178 MB on the phone. However when I click on "Maps" in storage check it only shows the downloaded maps on the SD card. Is there a way to free up this space that storage check indicates is being used?

    I ran Storage Cleaner app a few times, but it did not remove the apps and maps reported on the phone by Storage Check, nor did it change the 'free space' reported by Storage Check. Storage Check indicates that "Other" consumes 888 MB and that "Apps" takes up 3.2 GB, many of the apps I have uninstalled. Not sure if it is the operating system or the way the apps are written that causes some of them to not go away.

    I got a similar problem i had 1.2gb of storage available downloaded a game but cancelled during installation, but it has taken up 600mb of memory, ive tried clearing temp files, i recently found out that the storage cleaner app doesn't work with the latest gdr3 lumia black update, any ideas of how to get the lost memory back without having to reset my phone would be greatly appreciated. Using Nokia lumia 820.

    Maybe you can try downloading the game fully then uninstalling, assuming it writes to the same storage area of course.

    I found this and it worked for me:

    Go to Lumia Storage Check
    Set to download maps to SD Card
    Downloaded some map
    In Lumia Storage Check, reset to download maps to phone
    Press remove sd card on the phone storage option
    Back to LSC, tapped "maps" button and deleted map (delete map from phone)
    Restart the phone
