I was checking the used space on my Lumia 620 with the storage check App from settings (not the storage sense App) and I found something odd. The settings App is taking a lot of space!

enter image description here

Is this normal behavior? Or is it an error of the storage check App? If not, there is some way to free that used space?

I also noticed that most of my installed Apps arent' showed in the list.

  • I guess its a normal behaviour, because i am using the same phone and have same stats and I am not facing any problem. – Nisha Priya Oct 30 '14 at 21:22
  • I'm not facing any problem too, but I was wondering if something was wrong about all that used space. – Manuel Durando Oct 31 '14 at 12:33
  • I don't think there is something wrong. – Nisha Priya Oct 31 '14 at 21:13

As Nisha pointed out this seems to be normal. In fact, my settings seem to have 4,4GB (Lumia 930). It's weird though, the app also only shows a few of the installed apps. Not sure what criteria they match...

  • With storage sense App I'm getting completely different values about space used by Apps, System etc. I think in the future WP should only include one App between storage check and storage sense, in order to minimize confusion and clutter. – Manuel Durando Oct 31 '14 at 12:33

    Yeah, I'm with you on that one. I suspect the settings size to include all missing apps. – Thomas Oct 31 '14 at 15:20

    The difference is that Storage Sense is by Microsoft and Storage Check is by Nokia. Storage Sense is generally more accurate. – RareNCool Nov 24 '14 at 21:08
  • Mine is taking 6.33MB on a Lumia 930 (stable version)... (Storage Sense) – miguelmpn Jul 22 '16 at 14:20
