[Q&A] System storage taking up 117 GB?

2019-10-05 17:47:25

Hello all, recently I bought a 128 GB sd card to solve storage issues in my Redmi 5A, formatted it to use as internal storage and it was smooth sailing the first few days. But two days ago I woke up to a "Storage Space running out" so I checked the storage section in settings and I found the attached picture. Any ideas?

Also, for what it's worth, cleaner recognizes that there's 100+GB free, Google play store doesn't and won't let me download apps
