why is my other storage growing all over again?

I have a 520 that's been on dev preview since april(I recently got the cyan update) Initially it seemed as though the other storage had been deadly with. It would show 0mb in other and the temporary files would show around 400mb most of which would clear when I hit delete. Now since maybe the last two weeks my temporary files show 0mb and the other keeps increasing in excess of 600mb. Deleting temporary files does free some space but there's always around 450mb that'll be stuck in other.

Make sure you are using storage sense. Storage check is outdated now. Also you can now use the files app to access the files in the phone. Try checking there

Using storage sense.
The files app is a joke. Other than the downloads folder you can access all the other files from outside. I'll admit it makes sharing easier. But most apps still have their own storage which is invisible to the files app. It was a big deal when I downloaded it. Everybody asked for it. And initially it was fine. But I expected some improvements, an update of some sort.
The other storage I'm told is mostly app data and temporary files along with the set ups of apps that you download from the store.
On Android such files are easily managed.
