I just came across the Nokia Betalabs website, where Nokia offer their software prior to commercial release. One of my only real frustrations of Windows Phone 8 on my Lumia 820 was how much space was being consumed by the 'other' folder, as well as the amount of space consumed by offline map data.

This app sorts out those two issues...

Assuming you have an up to date firmware on your phone (settings > phone update > check for updates), you can sign in to your Nokia account on the betalabs website - and then you will be offered a QR link that takes you to the Storage Check beta download link.

Download it, and solve your storage issue! It cleared almost 1GB of space for me.

Hope this helps someone

This gives you an idea of what the app actually does;

Very good find, thanks for the info.
Excellent, just what I've been waiting for. Lumia 620 got to the point where I could hardly use the phone due to the memory being full of 'other'. Looks as if this will solve that. Thanks

I have just tested it on my girlfriends Lumia 620, and it works perfectly (her phone hasn't yet received the latest firmware from Nokia that installs the Storage Check app into the settings menu).
I'm really pleased with the way Nokia are dealing with Windows Phones shortcomings....hopefully Microsoft will step up to the plate in future releases, and leave Nokia to focus on more important things!

That update just came through for me...it now seems to support landscape as well as portrait view
(Hopefully Nokia will take that concept and apply it to the Nokia Music app...would be great to have a landscape view as portrait only makes it awkward when using it in the car!)
Thanks for posting
Saving a little space on my Lumia 620 by installing the maps to SD card is handy.

Thank you!
