    Other consists of the Hodgepodge of various miscellaneous things like email, texts, temporary files, much of which are things you generally don't want to delete. Know that its not all bad.

    However it may not be cleaned out properly, which was a problem pre-GDR2. There were solutions like shrink space, but are you on GDR2? I think that should be the first question.

    It cannot be deleted completely. However it can be reduced significantly by advancing the Date/Time by a year and then clear temp files using the in-built storage check app in settings.

    He's started his own thread and posted in a bunch of other "other storage" threads with a unique problem he's having. The advice offered him in every thread is "you need to do a factory reset, bro, something is W-R-O-N-G". But he won't do that, instead he just moves on to the next thread and complains.

    what im trying to say is that unfortunately there is no fix to this other storage issue no matter what anyone says! I'm sitting on 10 GB of other and I've tried everything anyone can imagine from a to z now im not saying that they wont fix it maybe WP 8.1 but for now mine keeps climbing. And for anyone who suggest this or that the answer is yes I have! No I won't hard reset to much game data seems stupid to loose data for a bug that should be fixed! Android and iPhone did have these problems...... But that was 3 years ago;

    well what im hoping is that someone can explain what's Wrong! And you say I just move onto the next thread to complain well it suck that every week someone else starts up a new thread about it! And why a reset ? What did I do to loose so much of my data? And if I do reset who's to say that will fix anything?

    Okay. Here's something that should work.

    Go to settings>internet explorer.
    From there, delete history. If you browse a lot, this should clear up a lot of data. Also, uninstall some apps. App data is included in "other".

    Assuming you've already used the Storage Check app (settings>storage check) to clear your temp files, there's not really much for you to do.

    okay beside the delete history( which I already do since this bug) I would love to know which app is taking so much other? I would delete it! But it wont tell me nor on phone storage or any where...... My biggest gripe!

    No one here is going to be able to explain what's wrong in your case. Not only does no one here work for Microsoft or Nokia, but no one here has your phone in front of them. Also, no one here watched what you've done with your phone since you've had it, to see any sort of usage pattern or glitch which may have caused the issue.

    And if I do reset who's to say that will fix anything?
    Everyone here who has had a problem with "other" and done a reset to fix it, that's who. Many, many people have done that. Many, many people have recommended it as your solution. YOU are choosing to not do it, but then you keep polluting every "other" thread with your unique issue, unwilling to do what it takes to fix it.

    Obviously your case is unique. Obviously something bad happened. Stuff like that happens all over the place with computers and technology. Obviously the fix is a reset. Do that, or toil away in silence; you have your solution, if you choose to not do it, that's on you.

    Settings>Storage Check>Apps.

    If you don't know about that, go try.

    While I'd like him to pull off a hard reset, or update his phone to GDR3, he refuses to do so.

    The least we could do is provide alternative solutions to his problem.

    Besides, I've been in this situation a lot of times before. A hard reset - no matter how immense the impact - is still temporary.
