    I just got a Lumia 830 (16G). Coming from a 920, (32G) I want to make good use of the storage space. When I go to details, I see a big chunk in System (2.4G) and Other (1.6). can anyone tell me what is in these? Thanks, Hiram

    Don't use storage check.

    You can also put apps and media on SD card to save space on your main memory. Just buy a class 10 SD card.

    The system folder is the OS.

    Other files typically indicate files the OS isn't familiar with. Not sure what apps you're using but there are many media files the OS is not familiar with.

    Lumia Storage Check doesn't usually work well with 8.1. Use the built in Storage Sense instead. Also quick suggestion, if you want to install your maps to the microSD card then use the old Lumia Storage Check beta.

    Thanks LaRue and pankaj. My local Best Buy has a 64GB PNY Class 10 card on sale. Do you think PNY is good???

    Personally I'm not paticular about card brand, so any reputable card like that should work.

    I use PNY and they're perfectly fine. They have a good reputation here in the EU. Just buy the best class 10 SD card you can to get optimum performance.
