After updating iPhone 4, 8GB of storage in 'other'

I had trouble downloading the new iOS software on my computer because it was issued to me by my college and contained a few firewalls which prevented me from downloading the software directly from iTunes. I found that I could download the software manually through Apple's website, so I did that.

Here's my problem:

The update worked and my iPhone 4 has all the new features, but for some reason 8 GB of my memory is now being taken up by "other". That memory was not being used before the update, so I'm wondering what I could have done to cause this? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Do a backup, then restore. This was a glitch several people ran into, after doing the update.
