    Hello All,

    I am getting rid of this "others" space occupied in my phone. This space is increasing day by day. Now it is occupied around 1.7 GB of my phone memory and i am not able to install any of the apps as my memory is all most full (340 MB free).

    I wanted to know what is this "others" space and how will it work?
    Is there any way to gain this space?

    Please help me to understand this...
    I have attached the snapshot...

    You could clean IE history and gain some space from that. I know at least that is included in Other. I really don't know what else. Never had lack of memory"problem" still got 22Gb free of 32Gb so not familiar with Other thing

    In others, there are files w which is not identified by OS, just like .zip, .rar, .iso, etc. Check of there are any such files by connecting to PC. That's as far as I can help.

    Most of the other files contains files left by GAMES. (Try installing any large game and uninstall it later. The other storage gets piled up. It depends on how the devs handle it.) Another thing are the OneDrive autoupload files.
    And please do not use nokia's storage check. It is very wrong. In the apps section it showed 400MB in my settings and three apps were missing from the list. WP(8.1)

    The sure shot way to clean it is a hard reset.
