    Hi all,

    Galaxy S5 16Gb recently upgraded (note, upgraded, not done a clean install yet) to Marshmallow 6.0.1.

    Even though I have moved everything I can to my external SD card, I am still occupying 15.75Gb of the 16 available.

    Clean Master App does a good job of clearing out junk and cache files on occasion, but I am now constantly running out of internal space.

    Question: Will a factory reset reduce the amount of space occupied on the internal storage? Has 'upgrading' to 6.0.1 left a load of residual crap on my phone, or do I just have to live with the fact that Marshmallow is a big Android version?

    I don't really want to have to do a clean reinstall if it not going to make any difference to my internal storage.

    Cheers in advance for your help.
