    So when I go to my storage it shows me that bar with how much space everything uses like apps, pictures, audio, downloads, cached data, and Misc. Well Misc. is taking over more than half of my space and I want to delete the things that arent needed but I don't know what I can delete without messing up my phone. My phone is and Android LG Leon and I have Metro PCS service. Here's the list of things on the Misc. section and their space used

    Total space 8GB
    Misc. space 4.41GB

    • System Data 4.36GB (cant be deleted)
    • com.emoji.coolkeyboard 12.77MB
    • com.ikeyboard.emoji.twttier 1.75MB
    • storage 80.00KB
    • com.qisi.sdk.file 60.00KB
    • com.ywh.imgcache 44.00KB
    • media 40.00KB
    • EmojiKeyboard Pro 32.00KB
    • Home 32.00KB
    • com.facebook.orca 20.00KB
    • QuickMemo+ 20.00KB
    • com.facebook.katana 20.00KB
    • Facebook Messenger 20.00KB
    • data 12.00KB
    • .temppass 12.00KB
    • LGBackup 8.00KB
    • .dwnld 8.00KB
    • com.qisi.adsdk.file 8.00KB
    • .vmn 8.00KB
    • WMPInfo.xml 296B
    • .profig.os 36.00B
    • Gallery 32.69MB
    The apps I have that I use are Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Wattpad, Pandora (which I will delete if its part of the space issue) Netflix, EmojiKeyboard Pro and Twemoji for Kika Keyboard. I also use the apps already on the phone like the phone and message app and Play Store, Gmail, Chrome, QuickMemo+ and the camera and gallery. I know some of those files go to certain apps but the main ones I dont understand are the ones that arent words just random letters like com.qisi.sdk.file and the other few like that. If someone could help me out i'd really appreciate it.

    Try this app out:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.diskusage&hl=en

    I can guarantee you that Facebook and Messenger are your biggest culprit. If left unchecked Facebook can take up more that a Gb.

    I guess I should explain more. Some of the files you cannot access are cache data. Facebook and Messenger feel like they need to store large amounts of data on your device in order to make the user experience more....... pleasant.

    You can clear a bunch by performing a cache wipe in Recovery Mode. You won't lose your apps but you will lose the cache data.

    What is Davlik-Cache?

    That may be a little technical but thought you might be curious.
