I believe that is storage of data via apps. Such as video, image, or document apps. Anything you might have installed that let's you save only to the app itself will show up as Other.Hi,
When i connect my iPhone 3gs to iTunes, then click on the iPhone logo on the left hand side,
Down where it reads capacity it reads OTHER along with audio apps and photo's etc.
I would like to know what is other? As it has 3.5GB in it and i cant find out what it is or how to delete it.
Can anyone Help?
I don't know of any way to determine the data use of a specific app without jailbreaking. Generally the large ones will be video or photo apps that store anything within the app and not the iPhone's native photo/video location. Document apps don't really take up that much space unless you're storing lots of large PDF files for any reason.ok so how do i find out what apps have 3.5GB in them? and do i have to delete the apps?
I didn't know about the syncing errors. Are these left as log files or corrupt files that just get replaced by the OS?I don't think it does include App data except for stock apps (messages, safari, address book, etc.). Your "other" can also get abnormally large if there are errors during syncing - like if you disconnect your iPhone while iTunes is loading a large file, the partial file will then become part of "other". As far as i know, the only way to correct this is restoring.
A restore should work fine, only backs up settings and app data... all corrupt files should get purged. I'm trying to find where I read this but I'm fairly certain Other = app cache and storage.i don't have any videos or pdfs so i'll try a restore? but if i back up will i back up the other files|? As well as everything else?
i'll give it a go.
Look for a setting or feature that "clears cache" in that app. Not all have the option but if it does that should clear it up in the future.Restored my iPhone and it cleared the OTHER FILE thanks.
I found out what it was it was the oplayer when I watched a movie on the iPhone and then deleted it the movie was still on the iPhone some where. So now I have to find out how to delete out of oplayer.
