[Solved - 'system' taking up over half of storage]

    Hello all.

    Today I noticed my internal storage was getting low and went on a cache-clearing/media-transferring spree. I lowered my app, music, and picture storage significantly. At the beginning, the "System" storage was 11 GB. Now, just an hour later, it's 17 GB, which is more than half of my storage space.

    How can I make it go back down? Also, less important, but why did it go up like that?

    EDIT: Never mind. I restarted it and now it's fine.

    A reboot for an Android is like a laxative and a caffiene pill for a human!
