    Go to settings/go to backup/make sure app list and settings says its being backed up....if not enable it. Back up pics to SkyDrive. No you will not be charged again for asphalt as long as you use the same Microsoft account

    Apparently GDR2 doesn't solve the problem of "other" storage indeed. Since I updated my phone it's constantly growing and today reached a peak of 4 GB. The only thing I could do is try the date trick, and recovered about 500 MB. I still have 8 GB free so I'm not exactly bitting my fingernails yet, but I'm getting worried. I don't use skydrive sync, only a few apps, a couple of games and a couple of pictures. So there is no reason for it to grow like that. Hopefully GDR3 will finnally fix this thing once and for all. I mean, really. It's a major issue, reported by a lot of users. Is it so hard for a company like Microsoft to address the issue? I'm sure they have more than 2 developers working on WP8.

    Yes at first when I got my WP8 I was glad it had GDR2 and even though my phone only has 8gb of storage, "Other" was consuming about 1.3gb. It stayed that way for the first several weeks and did not seem to grow so that was acceptable to me. However soon thereafter "Other" storage started to grow daily, despite not doing anything new or different with the phone. It has now consumed the remainder of my 8gb and I constantly get Low Storage warnings, and probably couldn't install anymore significant apps if I wanted to (down to about 300mb free space now...)

    We've had this discussion before about your lack of storage. You just need to suck it up and start removing some of those games you have loaded on there. I'd say you may need to get a different device with expandable storage but I have a feeling you would fill that up as well.

    Who are you addressing? If me, know that:

    1) I don't think I've discussed anything with you before
    2) My phone does have expandable storage, which holds all my media already. (using 8gb of a 16gb card)
    3) You can't install apps on expandable storage
    4) I only have 2gb worth of apps & games on internal storage.

    Even if I had more, what good would removing ANYTHING do, if that newfound free space will just eventually be consumed by Other Storage anyhow?
