    Something isn't right. 56GB is absolutely huge and, excluding the external SD card, S4s don't have that much storage space.

    There is a useful free tool called Disk Usage in the Play Store which I have found to be very helpful in working out what is really stored where. Unfortunately, identifying storage areas is a complete bugger's muddle on Android with different disks being given different names on different versions of Android and even in different applications on the same phone.

    One word of caution is NOT to delete anything unless you are sure what you are doing. There have been several posts here about people inadvertently deleting photographs that they hadn't backed up.

    All my photos auto back up to drop box and Google auto back up. I know the android doesn't have that much storage on the s4 and I've used disk usage it just tells me the gallery is taking up 56gb... Unless I'm not using it right not sure how to dig deeper...

    Go ahead and delete the Cache and Data from the Gallery app. It will not delete your pictures. I just did it on mine and it did not remove any of my images.
