Can anyone help I'm looking to delete some of the information in the file called other file. It'd taken more then half of my internal storage. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

@JoetabA7 I think you mean the category "Other files". It is not a file, it is summing up the storage taking up by files not in the other categories listed. 

It might help you if you look further down the screen in Device care to see the category Large files. See if you can delete any of those to help recover space.

@JoetabA7 Yes that is the screenshot. See those circled i's? Click on those and provide the permissions so that a proper analysis can be done and details provided. 

After you do that, you should get more details on what is using your storage space.
