I have 72 gb of my S21 Ultra's storage being taken up by "other" which is frustrating. I contacted support who said to clear out my downloads folder in file management which made practically no difference. What can I do to remove some of this "other" data? Thanks in advance.

Can you screenshot the breakdown of storage usage on the Samsung other storage. Just wondering if it's showing a breakdown for the apps, cause if that is blank it gets added into the other

My other storage use to show as 79 gig because my app storage space was blank previously.

If it has the circled i then all the space that your apps takes gets clumped in the other categoryScreenshot_20211217-184745_My Files.jpgScreenshot_20211217-191210_Samsung Members_14699_1639786331.jpg

That worked, thank you so much! I had to enable a permission to see all the app data and now 65 gb of "other" moved to apps.
