    My "other" storage is taking up so much space in my Windows phone! Is there any way to delete it other than resetting your phone entirely, because then I would have to keep doing that? Thanks.

    No apparent way to delete whatever is held in "other" I have seen it reduce with a "soft reset"
    ...and Let me welcome you to WPC!

    It's probably a specific app that's responsible for this. How much is your "Other" storage, though? Mine is in the 600MB range according to Storage Check.

    Other storage is a collection of things, inc emails, messages, app stuff etc.

    Emails and messaging are in their own silos. Other means files that aren't recognized.

    Yeah I thought it was maps, emails, etc, but I found out that there are other sections for those. Mine is currently at 1 GB and growing every day.

    This is fixed in 8.1. I have my,storage tile pinned to start. Free space shrinks down, then restores itself during idle periods. Never drops below 1 GB (I'm using an 8GB model btw)

    Storage Sense in WP8.1 has largely alleviated the "other" problem for me; it's one of my favourite features of the OS now. My "other" is 0 and "temporary files" can usually be manually reduced to about 170MB.

    Actually, on my Lumia 810 with 8.1, my temporary files are only 2.64MB and "Other" is down to 17MB. Not bad at all! Of course, that's on the phone's internal storage. On the SD card, the "Other" is around 849MB. Temp files are very, very low, though.

    I've never used a WP device with an SD card. Couldn't you just manage the "other" on the SD card with your PC to clear it out?

    I had my Lumia 810 connected to my computer yesterday, but I didn't see any way to clear that out. There's really no way to see what "Other" storage is, though.

    My temporary files get to around 250, when I delete them it drops to anywhere between 20-40mb. My other storage rarely hits 60mb now with 8.1.

    Not sure why now.
    Under Storage Sense other stays at zero.
    System however moves up and down by a few mb's regularly.
