    Recently I have had memory issues with my iPhone 6 running 8.0. Last week when I hooked my iPhone up to iTunes I noticed that the "other" label was taking up over 8 gigs of space on my phone.

    So in iFile I have been going through many of the system files to see if there were any stray or corrupt files on my phone that could be taking up space.


    I came across the folder "BatteryLife" (/var/mobile/Library).

    When you open the folder:

    When you go into the folder labeled "Archives" there are several files insde that are over 400mb big.

    To me this seems very odd.


    My question is, is it safe to delete the files inside "Archive" folder?

    Yeah, delete all those powerlogs, if you don't want them to be saved change the permissions on the "Archive" folder to Read-Only :)

    theyre just logs & "detailed info" that geniuses use to diag ur device, if u ever took it to an apple store for whatever reason & they ran some weird app to collect debug data & logs, its stuff like that that gets sent
