    Hello guys. I am new here :)

    I want to ask, why is my 630 using 3.62GB for the OS? before the update it used 2.5GB and my mother's 520 after the update still uses 2,5GB. Is it normal or should I do something about it?

    I have the same problem on my Lumia 925 WP8.1 update 1. My OS uses 3.67 GB. That's a lot. It is a problem cause on my Lumia I got only 16GB no micro SD card slot. Hope we'll find a solution.

    I kinda hoped that the update 1 would resolve this (I don't have it yet) but it seems it doesn't. I wonder if we hard-reset the phone will resolve this...

    can do nothing about it..... its their internal memory partitions.
    you have an extra sd card slot .... so why you worrying about that ??

    It's not that I worry about it, It's that I find it strange. And since I like to know everything about the device I am using(any device), I ask around what I don't know. And yes the use of sd card has saved me :)

    Are you using storage check or storage sense. Storage sense is much better since it's made for 8.1.

    I don't know why you guys complain about the storage space. Just buy an SD card and enable the features. Problems solved :D The Storage Sense is a great addition, though! :D

    Ever installed a software in your computer??!! Just like that your every app has some root files which will be kept in system memory. When you save game levels or app preferences, i believe it goes to system memory. Don't worry about it.
    But yes, you will have a temporary file system that keeps adding up. You can clean it up once in a while. You can find it in
    Storage sense > Phone/SD Card > temporary files > delete

    Previously on WP 8.1, it used to be the dreaded ' other storage', while in 8.1 it seems to have been merged with the system files. To check actual details of the storage taken up by system & other, you would have to use Lumia storage check beta.
    Currently, the only solutions for the storage problem is to either uninstall apps or perform a hard reset.

    I just faced a new problem. By moving everything to sd card, my phone became a bit sluggish. understandably I would say so because even a class 10 sd card (like mine) is slower than the on board memory.
