It took less space yesterday (around 3Gb) And now 4,46...

I remember trying to download a Game yesterday and the download failed at 75% cause I didn't have enough space. Maybe all the files I downloaded so far are redirected to system files?

How do I delete those files?

That seems unusually high - on a Nokia Lumia 1020 running 8.0.10517.150, "system" is only using 2.41 GB for me. Installing other language packs could increase that figure, but I wouldn't expect that figure to almost double.


That is unusually high. Running 8.1 on my 1320 and I Am on 2.61gb. Almost same figure I had when I was running 8.0. I would recommend to do a backup of personal files and go for a hard reset or using Nokia Care suite to reflash your entire system enter image description here


Ok so I searched stuff in my phone and I found the "storage check" in the settings. It showed that I had 2GB of system BUT apparently what was taking so much space were the temporary files! If you go to details you can see Temporary files and you just have to tap on clear enter image description here
