    ...and this is why when working at Microsoft you have to be careful even when joking...because other people run with it and take it too far. :(

    All in good fun, but I see your point.

    Let's put the brakes on this now. Never good to joke about hurting cops.

    I can't see how you are "patiently" waiting. For me I'm about to go call Microsoft asking for the update.

    I tthink this update might have a positive impact on other storage. When i updated my 1020&920 to update3, my other storage reduced dramatically. Fingers crossed this will happen again.

    But tweets were the source for April 2 and April 8. Now April 14 or 15. What then if twitter is liar?
    i guess all tweets, regardless of who they come from carry the same weight?

    That's because other categories were more accurately represented. The actual total storage used remained the same. You just were seeing less listed as 'other'.

    im not sure what you mean, can you explain further. For my devices, my total memory used decreased even though the content on the devices stayed the same. The only area that changed was the information that represented by "other".

    I'm not sure how I can be clearer, but I can try. :)

    Between GDR2 and GDR3 Microsoft determined that some storage that was being reported as 'other' didn't really belong in that category. So they changed how the categories report their storage. This means that 'other' reports less space used for that category. You may also see a small difference in total space used because they also determined that some files can be cleared out safely.

    However it is a small amount and the numbers should be nearly identical...just reported differently per category due to more accurate reporting.

    It seems like Microsoft won't release dev preview update of WP 8.1. They will make it official and everybody can get it straight on that day. Just my opinion.

    thanks and yes, that was definitely clearer and understandable. Nice one. Now roll on Monday :)

    You better first install the update, back up your settings (WP 8.1 backs up live tiles and more) and then do the hard reset...

    Not quite. Lumia Storage Check accounts for ALL the storage used. Phone Storage(I mean the MS. Phone storage shown in settings before storage check) eliminated the other category and created a storage "black hole" where the numbers reported do not add up. For example, My phone says I have used 6.50GB of storage. Adding up the individual categories reveals a usage of 6.01GB. Problem? Very much so.

    No they didn't. Other is down at the bottom of Storage Check.

    Why bother trying to say something that's not true?

    Listen. Lumia Storage check has both other and temporary files. Phone storage shows only temporary files. When adding up all my storage, turns out that Phone storage has phantom storage i.e, it doesn't add up, while storage check does not.
