Hi Mi Fans

What is Other Files ?

Other Files can be displayed from Settings - Storage report .

Other files may be a problem for phone with 16 Gb or even 32 Gb Internal storage as it may consume a huge space .

What is Other Files Data ?

Other files data varies by MIUI different editions, it may consist of ZIP files, Document Files, OBB Games files , some Cache files used by Mi Cloud service, some Thumbnails Cache Files when opening photos on your phone , ... etc .

How to delete Other Files to save Internal Storage space ?

Other files can be deleted using two methods

Method 1

Open File Manager, press on Menu Button and select Settings

Enable Show Hidden Files

Back to File Manager, open MIUI - Gallery - Cloud - .Cache

I deleted all these Cache files, restarted my phone , and check Storage again , and Other files space was reduced .

Note : MIUI will create these files again but with smaller space .

Method 2

Attention : this method will display all BIG FILES located on Internal Storage, it may be OBBs, ZIPs, APKs, Big Video Files like movies , ... etc .

It is adviced to be used only by experts in Android , MIUI , and File Types .

Open MIUI Secuity application, press on Deep Clean

Deep Clean will scan internal storage for big files, wait for it, and from Big Files section, press on Clean Now

Attention : Wisely select the BIG Files to be deleted, and press on Delete Selected Files .

That was a tutorial for what is Other Files, and how to delete it to save some space on your phone internal memory .

Thanks for your time .
