    I have the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview SDK but I don't know what to do.
    Can I anyhow setup my MS account in the 8.1 Emulator? I'm getting error while doing that.

    I think that's not the same Other. I feel like that "folder" will be used for items you download and arent supported by the OS, example if you download a Photoshop Template or some other unknown file type.

    I thought the same as soon as I finished reading the screenshot.

    It might contain cache files by applications that are no longer needed by OS , so one could easily delete them , cache files include temp files from onedrive , internet browsing , etc.

    It's just crazy to me that it's been over fifteen months (not counting the less severe issues that WP7 had) and Microsoft still has not solved such a critical issue.

    "Other" is just everything that doesn't fit into any category. The problem isn't with "other", the problem is storage leaks. The only solution is to fix each bug, one by one.

    Umm, Other Storage was fixed in GDR2, and further improved in Update 3. It hasn't been an issue for awhile. Assuming you're past Portico, at least...

    They bring SD card support for the apps so I won't care for the other storage as I care now

    Temp files are not the same than "other" storage. The delete temp files button is only for temp files.

    Other Storage has never exceeded 2GB on my Lumia 1020, and usually hangs around 1.3GB-1.5GB. I'm not sure what time you're living in... Even WPC confirmed that Other Storage was fixed in GDR2. For devices already suffering (I.E: anything that was running prior to GDR2), might still have some Other Storage left over. But a hard reset post-GDR2, and Other Storage shouldn't be an issue.

    When I got GDR2 my other storage was at 475mb, I have since gotten GDR3/black and since 2 my other storage never gets past 500mb. It will rise up to 495mb and then goes back down to around 450mb. Rises up to around 500 and then goes back down again. Don't know if it made a difference; but I added a 64GB SD card to my 820 and all pics; videos, music and maps goes to the SD card. Still have over 55GB left on the SD card. Other storage has not been a problem and I don't really think I ever had a problem with it. Things will be nice if 8.1 allows putting apps on the SD card. IF that happens I probably won't upgrade for awhile. I like the 820; and think its the most underated phone in t he Lumia line. Same guts as the 9XX series; but smaller and with a removeable battery, and a SD card Slot. The upgrades has made it even better.

    my 920 is on Black.... Other storage is at 2.9GB...
    my guess is my old email (i have 4 accounts) has been cached. Also, I frequently installed/removed apps and sometimes re-install them... seems some of the data remains in limbo within
    Do really hope wp8.1 does a decent job of purging it out....
    cant wait...

    Oh sure. First, we were supposed to disable camera roll backup, then it was supposed to be fixed in GDR2, then we were supposed to roll our time forwards by two weeks to clear temporary files, then Update 3 was supposed to bring a way to clear the files… and so it goes.

    Storage is still buggy as heck for many people, I've hard resetted my device since getting Update 3 and I'm missing 4GB.
