Does anybody know why the "other" amount for storage is so large now?

iPhone 4, iOS 5

    That large of "other" is corrupt data. First try restoring from backup to fix things, if that doesn't reduce it, you will have to restore as a new device to fix things.

    In my case, after upgrading to iOS 5 I had no music or video. But plugged into iTunes I could see 5gb of 'other'


    When I clicked on Music in the device I could see all my music listed. I clicked on a track and pressed play and it worked. Then looked at the phone and it had all been miraculously restored (although I am having to reinstall most of it because the artwork in most cases won't show.


    It was the same with the apps. Until I downloaded a new app, none of my existing ones would work. What a wonderful experience this iPhone upgrading is turning out to be!!!
