    Hey guys,

    I was busy cleaning my storage, because I got a notification that my storage is almost full. I noticed that the system uses about 60GB of my storage! Is this normal? It sounds strange to me because the total storage is 120GB. Can someone help me empty it?

    Edit: I just realized that this might be posted on the wrong subforum. If so, can an admin help me out and put it in the right subforum?

    "System" is a very vague category. This contains almost all files used by system in various ways. Or, all files other than picture, video, documents, books, apps, backups, are categorised by "system" or "other".
    Btw, my system is also 121GB disk and now have only 15GB left.

    Yeah I cleaned a lot of storage using that function. But the System part is still using a lot of storage and I cannot manage that part.
