I have HD7 with 16GB space onboard. Currently I have about 1 GB of music
2 Gb of movies and photos.
The rest of the space is occupied about 11 Gb to reserved space.
How the heck I can manage this? On Zune setting I set the reserved space on 2%.
I even tried to lower this to 0% but Reserved Space still uses 10 Gb.
I need a way to claim this back without hard resetting the phone or removing all my installed apps.. That'd be really ridiculous.
What to do?

I did a little counting... I find it really strange...
Lets say.. theoretically I have 100 apps and 100 games installed.
(I don't think I do, but just for the sake of argument)
Lets say on average each app takes about 5 MByte and each game
uses up 20 MB. ( I think "on average" should take less than that)
With a little calculation my apps should use about 500 MB, and
my games total to 2 GigaByte.. For a grand total of 2.5 Gbyte.
Right now they're using up to 11 Gbyte of my precious unupgradable
As I said before, setting Reserved Space Zune setting to 0% still
There's something wrong here...
How to find out which app is taking so much space?
O ya, I even already tried and removed my facebook account on my phone
but it's not the culprit..
Thanks for any help....

1. music / Pics / Vids /contacts /anything not stock = also takes memory
Saved data in APPs/ saved data in Games!! = also take up room
Second , its NORMAL to have reserve space cause it prevents problems just like on a PC.
you should ALWAYS have 500MB/1GIG of free reserved space you cant touch.
you can change the reserved space from the settings in ZUNE. I dont remember how but i remember playing with it a few month back.
To know how much size your app takes:
2. if you go on marketplace: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/marketplace on the left side when you select an APP/Game it tells you how big it is.
or you can start fresh and hard reset...If your looking for Information, be sure to check out: WindowsPhone: Getting started!
