I have a HTC desire 626 running Android 5.1. When I go to settings/storage and look under phone storage/Music, I see there is 31.89 GB of music stored on the phone. All of the "on board: music I need is stored on the SD memory card. I would like to delete whatever music is on the phone to preserve storage space. The following are the apps I have or have used to play music which may have stored files on my phone: Pandora; Use regularly, I don't believe it stores music on the phone Android music player: I have removed the SD card to verify that there is no internal music available to this app. Spotify: used it for a while, determined I prefer Pandora. Deleted. Recently reinstalled to see if I can use it to locate and delete music files. Went to Home/settings /other/storage and changed to SD card storage. It "transferred" successfully. However, the music storage taken was unchanged. Went to home/your library/recently played and deleted 20 songs, one by one. Music storage size unchanged. Connected the phone to my PC and browsed it using windows. No obvious location music stored on the phone. The question I need answered: when I go to settings/storage and look under phone storage/Music, what directory is Android polling? Is it in the protected section of the phone that is unavailable? I am willing to do anything short of rooting the phone to recover this storage space. It's my phone, no app should be stealing storage from me!!!
