Anybody else having issues with storage on their HTC 8X. I knew I didn't have much space left thanks to my love of Xbox gaming but I have gone down to MB even after a mass clearing of games and apps. Any solutions or apps that can help manage my storage dilemma?

The "other" storage is necessary for the functioning of the phone, it basically contains app data and cached files, and your offline maps too (the maps for the entire USA can take up a sizeable lump).
GDR2 cures the continual bloating of the "other" folder, but you won't be able to clear the folder itself (it'll just shrink to what's actually needed).
If you don't yet have GDR2, then a factory reset will clear any over-bloat. If you do have GDR2, then you need to live with the amount you have there, or delete some content from apps that put data into it (like delete some offline maps if you don't need them).
Without giving us figures as to what amounts you have in each category in settings->storage, it's hard to recommend solutions.
My phone has an "other" category of 1.75Gb and it's remained static (under 2Gb) for some months.Pete_______________________________

This phone has made me a believer In going back to the IPHONE i will never use a windows phone again or buy a htc anything this 8x is the most worthless phone I have ever used. I am very lucky i bought it from Best Buy with insurance as this is the 3rd one I have had and every one failed either software or hardware failure. Did they even test these phones out? and if i had known I could only use 2 gig of the 8 while other gets 4gig and the os gets the other 2. I cannot believe this was ever released. Sorry if I am ranting in the wrong forum but if this is the basis of the windows phones I have learned my lesson.

P.S. I have tried everything to get some space back. And nothing works with this HTC 8x. If anyone wants to buy this one I am selling LoL Seriously this is so frustrating I really did want to like this windows phone but this has seriously shown me that these phones are not worth what they cost in monetary loss or frustration gain wise.
