I love this tablet, but I've used 30+ GB of the installed 32GB of space.  I reviewed the internal storage page under Settings, and it reports 23GB of 'Other' data.  Is there any way to find out what this data is, and if there is a way to remove it?  I don't store music, videos, or photos on this device.  I've tried to use some free utils from the Play Store but they don't give me much info.  I really don't want to 'root' it or mess with any utilities that deal with the O/S.  Thanks for any info.

No, never used Telegram.  Is that a file-manager-type app?

No, it's like a chat app but it can take up tons of room. Many times that app is the answer to questions like this.

I really only use the tablet for reading newspapers and a Barnes and Noble NOOK app with magazines and books.   One file manager I read reported that the NOOK folder is only a few GB.  So no, I don't have telegram or other chat apps on the device.

If something like a cleaner doesn't find what's taking up all the space, it may be time for a factory reset to start over fresh.
