    Did you tried this:

    Shrink Storage | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    I'll try it and let you know what happened...

    I think one of these 'Other storage' threads should be stickied, as there seem to be a handful floating about.

    Ok, I've tried this Shrink Storage Program and it worked for me.

    Got back all my free space on SD.

    Used on HTC 8S.

    I used the "Shrink Storage" app without any significant result..

    My "Other" storage is at around 1.6 GB and growing each day...I did a complete phone reset several times and it still grows each day..

    I have purged most Apps (I thought the idea of a smart phone is to actually HAVE apps) to see if that makes any difference...nope:(

    This has taken on the definition of dating_>>> Repeating the same thing while expecting different results (otherwise known as a definition of insanity)
    in conclusion: my phone looks good, feels good but comes with a lot of baggage while becoming increasingly disfunctional.

    so, the only option to me at this point is to switch the platform..too bad, I actually enjoy this OS :(

    The phone will notify it is short of storage, keep poping up the notification, and it doesn't tell you how to solve it. The phone will be very slow, and you have to do the fatory reset. it is very annoying. I think WP8 is not matrure enough to launch in market.

    Same thing is happening with my Lumia 720 .
    The other storage and Apps size are increasing day by day. I'm worried because of that.

    I also ran into this issue lately. After waiting for several month for a fix from the vendor, I decided to go for a phone reset. Back up my stuff to the SD card and did the reset. After doing the reset my other folder came to like 135mb and after installing skype, configuring mails, wifi,...it came to 400mb.

    To not ran into this mess again, I put some movies on my phone memory (like 4-5 movies amounting to 4gb). So that next time the phone eats up all the phone memory, I know I can delete those movies progressively to free up some space and buy some time till that fix from MS comes. I need not to worry about phone memory too much as long as I have gigs of space on my SD card. But you need to keep enough memory on the phone to run the applications, like 500mb minimum.

    Also, turned off SkyDrive and if you have Bing photos as lock screens disabled that too, to minimize any risks after the reset.

    I have 6.7 GB of "Other" internal memory! This leaves 600 MB of free space on my Nokia Lumia 822 on Verizon. I don't want to do a factory reset to eliminate most of the "Other". I keep hoping MicroSoft will issue a fix so I won't have to spend my time resetting and restoring my phone.
