    EDIT: FIXED! Did a second restore and this time there's no other, thank goodness :)


    Can't rid my 6 Plus of the dreaded "other". I deleted a 30gb playlist, it finished syncing, but ever since it has 30gb of "other".

    Tried erasing all content and restoring from backup, but the backup brings the same amount of "other" back with it.

    I fear that I may have to do a clean install and setup everything completely afresh, but I REALLY don't want to have to do that :(

    Any suggestions?

    please do not flame me

    this is a bug with iTunes match

    your iTunes match is on

    please turn off iTunes match

    delete the music library on the phone manually, it is still there

    turn iTunes match back on

    if you do not subscribe to iTunes match then i am wrong, but i don't think so

    there are several other threads describing your problem and it being the fault of iTunes match

    when you have a lot of music and you turn on iTunes match, sometimes it goes to other instead of actually being deleted, like iTunes match says it is doing


    oh i see you fixed it, ok good

    Thanks for the response, but I've never used iTunes match.


    I've since edited my post, I did a second restore and it was finally free of the other, thank goodness. No idea why it took two identical procedures, just happy it's sorted.

    Perhaps your iMessage saved data?

    It had to be directly linked to that 30gb music playlist. I deleted it, then the exact same size as the playlist, 30gb, became other.

    Anyway, all sorted now.
