Hi to all early adopters!
Just installed GDR3 preview on my Lumia 920. No wow effect so far, but I noticed one annoying bug or feature(?). When you go to phone storage-> temporary files and try to delete them the operation takes considerable time and if your phone screen happen to lock in progress operation is canceled. Tried to delete temporary files again tapping the screen for 5 minutes, then I got bored, screen locked again and the operation is canceled again. Pretty annoying!

I've just disabled screen locking for the duration. It's still deleting, seems to be taking ages.
EDIT: Took about 5 minutes, doesn't seem to have deleted anything. Temp files were taking up 937MB before deletion, same thing now.
Nokia Storage Check says temp files are taking up 292MB. I don't understand the inconsistency, but I'm guessing the one on MS side isn't even reading the data correctly. 1GB of temp files seems to be much too much...

Same here, disabled screen lock, waited for about 45 minutes, still deleting. Temporary files size 592 MB. Nokia storage check shows 289 MB. Clear deletes nothing.
Reboot didn't help much. Nokia deleted 1MB, windows detele still hangs and deletes nothing.

Don't forget that a healthy percentage of your previous "Other" category now lives in with "Apps".
It really would be nice to know what apps were the fattest ones on my phone.
Yup, deleted Six Guns and an indie game and immediately regained almost 1Gb.Pete_____________________________________

Mines is showing 921MB of temp files. Sits on Deleting temporary files forever and still has 921MB when done.
EDIT: Nokia storage check shows 290MB but that's the amount it stays at. It never goes to 0.

1.41GB of Temporary files. Doesn't delete anything, Shrink Storage does nothing either.
I still have another storage app will try that...but doubt it will work. Oh well. Hopefully they have this sorted out for the final release.

And on my Lumia 810 after GDR3 there was no new delete temp files function in phone storage,
I guess I can count myself lucky, that new function probably takes up a bit of "other"
but since it doesn't work anyway but it's good to know that it's as useless as "clear" temporary files
is after Storage Check was installed with Amber/GDR2 at least MS/Nokia is consistent in providing "solutions" that do 0.

I'm not surprised with the discrepancy between MS and Nokia in regards to the temp file size. Most likely MS bundled everything together again :P lol. Have you guys tried deleting the ie history via ie as well? I don't have update 3 installed to check, I found that the Nokia's storage app currently does not delete ie history looks like the ie cache is locked - as you can see below: Nokia storage app does not clean ie temp files (L920 with Amber).
Edit: Tried clearing off the 29 mb but it doesnot go, not a big deal but the lowest I have had it is 5mb.

Vote on both please for MS to retain the back button!
