It asks me to allow files to do a thing it doesn't have permissions to since this is a new phone. I tapped the i button, press the "let files do this" thing, it took me to a different app where I toggles the permissions for files on, and then it turned out I had 30 gigs of apps

When you look in device care, do any of the categories have an "I" with a circle around it? If so, click on the circled "I" and it should reset the numbers.

Didn't it move some data into the apps category after you tapped on the circled "I"?

Not from what I can tell
My main focus is making the 51 gigs of system go back to 7 gigs

What do you mean? I don't understand what you mean by "I have room temperure iq and didn't allow files the permissions to do its things"? It would be helpful since I have the same problem.

That is app data i think. If you have a lot of apps, you might want to delete some or clear app data on some but that will delete everything on the app i think (useful on some apps).
Netflix has a lot of app data if you download a lot of movies.
Game apps with HD graphics also have high app data.
You can check which app has the most app data by looking at app info page for each.

To get to the second step , ie , to get to Maintenance screen ....


Power off the phone

Press and HOLD the Volume Up button

Press and HOLD the Side Key (ie, power button)

When you see the boot logo , release both keys .... you will see the Maintenance screen

Proceed with the "second thing" steps in previous reply
