    So, I was looking through my iPad (iPad 1, 64 GB, WiFi/3G), when I was shocked to see that I had 28.7 GB of storage used.

    I looked at what each app was using and added it all up to find that it added up to just under 8 GBs.

    Anybody have any idea where this phantom 20 GB of space usage is coming from?

    I only have 5 books in my iBooks, and none of them are picture-books.
    I have 13 photos saved to it.

    I can't for the life of me figure out where all that space has gone...

    What does iTunes say? (referring to that graph to shows storage usage)

    iTunes is showing 19.8 GB of "Other."

    My biggest app is Sports Illustrated at 4.8 GBs. But I know that's because I have about 12 to 15 full issues in there weighing in at about 250-300 MB each.
