Freeing storage space on my Samsung Galaxy 5 android phone.

PennyLanden asked
Last Modified: 2015-10-30
I'm constantly running out of space for installing apps on my Galaxy 5 android phone.  I've installed a 16 GB SD memory card, but most of my apps are unable to relocate there, so it largely goes unused.  I currently have 13 GB of space available on the card.

Under the category of "Misc files" in my storage, there are 6.66 GB of unexplained data.  My applications take about 6 GB and my remaining available space is 758 MB.  

Is there any way to free up space from those Misc mystery files?   Six GB seems like an inordinate amount of space to be unspecified.  

Thanks for any help you can give me.
