    @Chris_Sewell Don't worry: non-deleted large files (XAPs, eg) that caused 'other' storage issues were fixed in GDR2. on all 1020s.

    If that is the comment your talking about, I am a little concerned about that last statement "on all 1020s". Well what about the non 1020s??

    Well given that the phone is new, doesn't that mean the software is likely new compared to the non-1020s? So maybe it is an update in the works?

    I don't think so. Maybe it prevents new other storage collecting, but it definitely doesn't provide the ability to clear existing other storage. At least not on my 8X. After the GDR2 update I had 4GB of other. I deleted all apps and games which I could afford to; cleared browsing, emails, messages and office documents; and did the photos skydrive trick. This took it down to 2GB with no apparent reason to still have 2GB in the storage. After installing about half of the apps back onto my phone is it back up to 3GB.

    I hope it works for you.

    Question: if you connect your phone to your computer via USB, what do you see? Doesn't it appear as an extra device? If Yes, then you should be able to move through the different file folders and delete whatever is in Other Storage folder, correct? Although, you may have to change the folder settings to display "Hidden" or "System" folders in order to see the Other Storage Folder. I'm curious to know because I am very close to pulling the trigger on a Lumia 928 purchase. Good Luck & Thanks.

    There is no Other Storage folder, when connected to my computer and no other folders or files get shown if set to display hidden folders.

    You cannot access those, I pray everytime before and after uninstalling an app, hoping the other won't swell.
