    Hello everybody,

    I currently using an iphone 5S 64Gb jailbroken.

    When I went to iTunes it showed the yellow bar with 2.86Gb of "other" files being used.

    I already searched online and all I could find was to use iCleaner Pro.

    after I used icleaner it removed 800MB and now I have 2.16gb.

    1. Is there other way to get rid of the 2GB of other files?

    I am not sure how to get rid of it

    Also, it might be that I misplaced a movie in the iphone folders but it is just a thought.

    2. how can I search all folders by file size?

    Did you jailbreak your phone? do you have any tweaks? Im guessing yes. you cant get rid of the 2 gigs of other. your os and app data is stored there . thats normal mines at 3gigs with tweaks and some emulator games.
    non jailbroken phones with ios 7 start with around 800mb. add any apps and it grows. I cleaner from cydia is good at cleaning junk out btw.

    Partially downloaded torrent files can take up a ton of space. Not sure if you use iTransmission but any partially downloaded torrent will suck up your "other" space. You'll have to search the forum or google to find the file location path. I've never used iTransmission so I'm not sure where they would be located.

    Yes is jailbroken on 7.0.4. It has some tweaks but I don't think it would take so much space. I was just wondering because I think 2 days ago I had around 1GB and then I had over the 2gb. But I guess it's normal.
    Yea iCleaner really helped to remove a bunch of trash files I suppose 800MB .

    o ok, thank You for the response. with that I can make a comparison.
