storage is anything that's not shown already. app data, not apps, but app data and things like that. if you have a large amount of other you may have some corrupt data. it should be around 1gb. if you have more than that you may need to restore from backup and if that doesn't work you may need to restore as new and set up your phone again.
ya, it is showing I have 3.99gb of Other...I cleared everything out Mail, Photos, and App data and it is not changed, I will try a restore. If it is on there from my last back up, won't it just reshow when I restore? And what would Corrupt Data be and how do I prevent that from happening again??
Thanks so Much!
if you restore from backup and it's still there then unfortunately you will have to restore as new and manually add everything back. i would make sure that you have your contacts backed up in icloud or on your computer, import your pictures to your usual place as well. i'm not sure what the corrupt data is, but i just had to do this to my daughter's phone and her other went from 2.5 gb to 800 mb. as a last resort before doing this, do you have a ton of text messages saved? did you try resetting safari cache? you could try that first just in case.
