Massive 5.5GBs of "other"!

What the hell I have 5.5GBs of "other" on my iPad? Anyone know the cause of this and how to fix it?

I wondered what the hell that was. I had that too once...it actually said I was over capacity by like 7GB. Which made no sense. I restored it and it was fine after that, but I had a hunch I over-reacted. I'd love to find out why it did this, and what to do if it happens again. (Without restoring it, at least)

Is it jailbroken by any chance? If so, do you have an app called iFile installed?
