    After upgrading to iOS5 and re-synching to fix some problems with missing music, iTunes is now claiming that I have 9 GB of "Other".

    Prior to my upgrade, I had an almost immeasurable amount attributed to "Other." Does anyone know what could have caused it to suddenly grow to 9 GB or how I can fix it?

    Thank you

    I got that it turns out that my itunes started to sync all my applications... even the ones i deleted a long time ago... so it reserved space for those incoming apps... but you could keep checking up on it

    It was fixed for some people by doing a resync.

    Hard-reset or another sync fixed it for me (don't remember which, I think it was the hard-reset)
