    Storage Check is showing that my "settings" takes up 2.4 GB when I look under "Apps.". How can this be?

    Weird. I just don't understand how the settings can take up that much space though.

    It usually does... When buying a new phone always deduct 2 or 4 gb from the amount of internal memory advertised :P

    I don't use storage check anymore. Moved over to storage sense. My "system" files are at 2.8gb or so. Other is usually around 0-40mb. I had one instance of temp files at about 2gb and would not clear out. Finally got a message to turn off wifi and it would clear it. It was weird but worked.

    I also don't use storage check anymore as its representing settings as utilising 11GB of space and not showing the apps I know are actually using that space.

    storage check is so dodgy on wp 8.1. Use storage sense instead.

    I think this is the other storage problem, it has not been fixed. Microsoft just changed its location to show up under Settings because they think we are stupid. My settings is at 5.1gb right now.

    Nokia Storage Check is not showing information properly on 8.1. I recently got an email from Nokia Beta Labs, where they told me that Storage Check was discontinued, and that you should use Storage Sense instead.

    To uninstall Storage check, set your phone date 100 years forward. Then open Storage Check, and an uninstall button should appear.
    After you're done don't forget to set the date back :p

    I use both Storage Check and Storage Sense. Under Storage Check, my settings are at 883MB, but in Storage Sense, I don't actually see what the amount is for the settings. Are you sure you're not looking at system?
