    So, I got the new phone today and restored via iCloud backup. I connected to iTunes to find that my 'others' file was 1.05Gb. Obviously it's not jailbroken, so I can't access any system files to sort it. So what can I do? Anyone have the same problem or a solution for a non-jailbroken phone?

    Cheers!

    My other on my iPod touch was 1.06 GB and grew to 1.13 GB.

    There is a program you can get I don't remember the name for windows that let's you browse your device. You have to be careful because deleting the wrong files can brick your phone.

    Yeah, others have said to access files in the 'var' folder. Problem is, without a jb, I don't know how to access them!
