Since the recent update I now have 99gb of my 128 gb being used by the "system"..... Pretty sure it's usually about 50 percent of your strange storage space so this seems ridiculous.... Am I wrong, if not, suggestions?

That's typically what the amount of system storage usually allocates to run a systemScreenshot_20221103_070431_My Files_1000001640_1667473471.jpg

I recommend not messing with the system files. It holds up to date security files and and system updates. I don't think you can tangle with the system files without jailbreaking your Samsung

Go through and run the system cleaner. It will delete temp files and clear out temp update folders. System should be around 40gb

That's what I thought, when you say cleaner,I have went into storage and "optimized" multiple times, is this what you mean or something different?

Right above the system storage, you'll see the row that says "apps" on the far right of it theres a little I in a circle.

Tap that to allow access to apps, so it can see how many there are and how much space they are using. I'd I had to guess that's why system is so high, since it can't properly catagorize apps. Just a hunch, but worth a shot.
