    Default Storage Issue

    I have a nagging issue with my andriod tablet.
    Recently I have been getting a message saying "Your internal storage is 80% full would you like to transfer data to SD Card" or words to that effect.
    When I check the Internal storage it says 2.3 GB free of 11.4 GB.
    If I check the contents of that, it shows, Pictures, Music, Videos, Archives, Documents & Other.
    The first 5 have have minimal but the "Other" has 9.1 GB
    I can open & inspect the contents of the first 5, but not "Other"
    I am assuming it contains the system files, but it shouldn't be that size.
    Any Ideas ?

    Don't panic, I've got it down a lot by manually clearing the cache of every app on the system.

    Move all your pictures on the tablet to the sd card if you used it's internal camera, assuming it has one.

    Already keep all music, pictures and video on sd card, so it's just apps causing the issue.

    Some devices dont have a large amount of Storage. My phone has a higher Main storage than Tablet. The phone has 16GB, with a 64GB SD card (But I don't live or have loads of apps on my phone so not large amounts needed) The tablet only has 8GB, with a 128SD card, any photos, music etc all get relocated to the SD card.

    SWMBO has a cleaner that came on her phone so installed it on the tablet, just removed 580MB worth of junk.

    There can be an option in settings to send pictures taken directly to the SD card and avoid using internal storage for pictures, altogether.

    Maybe have a look for that setting.

    This tablet is a Sony Xperia Z.
    It has 16 GB internal storage & 32 GB external.
    As I said in post #4 all pictures, music & video are stored on SD.
    Documents is empty.
    So my problem is with the apps.
    Any non default apps I have installed are already on SD.
    None of the default ones can be moved.
    When I cleared all the caches the contents droped to about 8 GB but I notice this morning it has risen back to 11.4 GB.
    I guess this is one way of telling me it's time to buy a new one.
