In most cases, you can't.
App Data is simply the data the app stores while in use. In the case of Twitter, it stores/caches the avatars so it doesn't have to re-download them each time you use the app. Even though they are just small images, when you've viewed many thousands of avatars, that all ads up.
If an app doesn't have an option to clear this kind ...
Other Storage on Windows Phone 8 includes cached data that is stored on your device. Everything from email, games, videos, game info, app info, documents, images synced to SkyDrive are all items that can fill it up.
When you need to install an app or perform another action that requires more dedicated use of storage, this other space is supposed to ...
Try going to settings and then to Storage Check. You get a nice sorted list at the end.
P.S. I was looking for the same and passed by your question. I saw just now that it's over a year old. Perhaps this section was missing from settings back then?
That would be for the built-in non-volatile storage1, not RAM. 128 GB of RAM is not something you will need in a mobile phone for a long time.
1 Strictly speaking, ROM is not the correct acronym because it stands for "read-only memory", which the built-in storage of your phone is obviously not.
Starting with v8.1 which was released to those on the "Preview for Developers" yesterday, the new Storage Sense app allows for apps to be stored on the phone, or on the SD card.
This update is due to be rolled out to all phones running 8.0 over the "next few months", and availability will vary by phone manufacturer and, in some cases, network operator.
You should wait : the current mobile build has a little bug with the storage setting.
If you move from WP8 to W10M, your apps on the SD card will still be there.
But with the current build we can't change the storage settings, so you should set them up before upgrading.
Unfortunately you will have to reinstall all apps as they the files on the SD card are bound to your old phones ID.
You can insert the SD Jonny your old phone, make a backup there and restore it on your new device - this way you don't have to download all apps manually.
Unfortunately , WP doesn't allow us to remove App Cache globally. It is totally dependent on Developer to add such functionality for his app.
The only possible way to delete the cache is to delete the app and install it again.

The easiest way is using your computer.
You need to have a Windows XP/Vista/7/8(.1)/10 with an internet connection.
Put the SD Card in your Windows Phone
Use a phone-to-USB cable. When it's connected, make sure the Windows Phone is installed before using it.
Go to the File Manager and go to (My) Computer.
Right click on Windows Phone and select Open/Explore
Packages are first downloaded, and then unpacked/installed, and it is that download size that is shown in the store. Because it has to download it and then install, you typically need at least twice the size of the package free to install it (although the size of the download package would be freed after installation)
As mentioned in my comment, Storage Cleaner is a 3rd party app which has no proper method of clearing the temporary files. It uses a kind of hack (ie. fills up your phone with data) until it's full to try and force the phone to free up more resources by deleting its temporary files.
This will not always work, and some of the temporary files are stored ...
Yes It is possible but you need to unlock your phone. Download and install Interop tools and then open the app and tick down the Full FileSystem Access. Then restart your phone and connect to PC. You will have the full access now.
It will be in this directory - Phone\Music\Me\RecorderPro. I have the RecorderPro application as well and this is where my files are being stored. Once you connect your phone to your PC just navigate to that directory. If you load the "Files" application on your phone you can view your phone's files and directories through the application (though this ...
If you're talking about just the reserved data for the OS, there are a number of things that use this up. One of the big ones is updates; updates themselves may make the OS bigger, but also downloading the updates uses up space. Stuff like temporary Internet files and the like also take up some space, though I'm not sure what category they're reported under ...
My summary of the referenced links below:
Check your storage available, you need up to 1.5 GB free space. New phones allocate System & reserved 4.98 GB of 29.1 GB. You may also have some pre-installed Apps & games taking up space (mine was 1.05 GB). If you have plenty of storage space available then you can ignore the erroneous storage space ...
This is indeed a peculiar behavior from which I can only assume there's a glitch. The only solution I can think of is hard resetting your phone.
Make a backup of everything you need (photos etc) before starting.
Download the Windows Recovery Tool to your computer.
Connect your Windows Phone to the PC with the USB Cable. If your phone is not automatically ...

Open Storage sense
Go to Phone->Apps and Games
Select an app
Click move to SD card button.
Repeat these steps for all the apps you want to move.
I cant even upgrade to windows 10 from windows 8 ...
From my experience, Windows Update cannot handle low free space situations in a satisfactory manner (I had the same problem with Android). The only way I was able to solve the space/update problem was:
On my Lumia 640/Windows 10 I ended up with 2.5 GB free of 7.2 GB.
That's not currently possible with Windows Phone 8 (Update 3). The SD card can only store Music, Pictures, Video, and Maps.
The Windows Phone 8.1 update is expected to add this feature, which is due for release around July/August 2014.
After upgrading to Windows Phone 8.1 I noticed the storage usage had moved to "Other" from photos. Turns out the Mac app for windows can't display or delete DNG files even though it can import them. The phone also doesn't show DNG files in the camera roll if the associated JPG files have been removed.
Plugging the phone into a Windows 8 machine, and ...
You're not the only one experiencing this:
I'm attempting to switch to the Lumia 820 from previous Lumia phones
-- the 920 and the 720. Sadly, I'm seeing an issue that is also present on the Lumia 720, i.e.: with an SD card inserted, the camera
takes longer to snap the first photo. The proceeding photos are
typically snappy, but if you wait too long ...
The reason you see this happens is because your phone only syncs your pictures to OneDrive when it takes them. Once you take a picture it is saved locally. At the phone's earliest convenience, it will upload the file to OneDrive. Changes to your pictures in OneDrive do not sync back to your phone.
Also if you delete a photo from your phone, the copy in ...
When you delete the texts on your phone they will be deleted from your backup as well!
Deleting text messages will also not free up a lot of space. I'd recommend getting a (bigger) MicroSD card for your phone.
