    I have a Samsung Galaxy J-1 and after receiving a notification that my storage was Low, I deleted all app cache, deleted items from the gallery, moved an app to the SD card, and deleted an app.
    I still only have 711mb of space left. When I went into my settings look at storage it shows miscellaneous files using a ton of space. As I have no idea what a lot of these files are, how do I find them-identify , view - and know what they're for what they do and if I need them. This is just a couple of them .ravesocial/ /hyprmxshared/ baidu. Thank you for your help.

    Those are your system files. You're going to need those.

    If you are able to delete them from to stock storage manager, then those are personal files. The rest is system.
    When a device is listed as having 8Gb of internal storage, the common misconception is that is USER space. It is not. It is shared with the system.
