More detailed report for iTunes "Capacity" bar for iPhone / iPod

July 16Hits:0
Advertisement

When I plug my iPhone into iTunes, I see a horizontal "bar" labeled capacity. That bar shows me the space used for "audio", "video","photos", "Apps", "Other" and "Free".

Is there a tool (on Mac/win or iPhone) that can give me more details as to what data (files, folders) is stored in those categories.

I'm especially worried about pruning the steadily growing "other" category almost 4GByte.

Answers

Here's a support forum thread I found with some suggestions:

It sounds like you might try clearing caches, old SMS messages, and stuff like that.

When I copy files to my jailbroken iphone through SSH (files the OS doesnt recognize i suppose), they count as 'other' space. So when I downloaded a few gigs of maps for XGPS, it was 3GB of 'Other'

Maybe that helps

This question is similar to iPhone/iPod space usage information on the device.

I tried deleting my safari files and pictures and texts, but then I found this link on google that shows lots of different ways to fix it. Cause my other space was 4GB!
