Hey guys, I know there is similar posts about this on here already, but I haven't read about anyone having the particular problem I am expericing. I noticed the other day that the "other" category on my iPhone 5 is taking up 8.06 GB of storage. I found this to be a little ridiuclous so I searched the internet to find out if this was normal. Apparently it isn't, so I tried seveal treouble shooting methods. I restored the iPhone twice, and even wiped it clean a third time and restored it back from a previous back up. The other GB storage went down to under 1GB (which is where it's supposed to be according to everyone in the Apple community), I then manually synced all my music back to my phone, as it was the last thing left to put back on my phone after the back up. After the phone was done syncing the remainder of my music, I went back to "Summary" under my iPhone and the other slot was back up to 8GB. My guess is corrupted data in my music, does anyone else have a clue of what could be the culprit here?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3
