Storage Allocation - Blackberry Playbook - Confusing

Thank you for reading ->


My 64GB Playbook, version 2 software shows:

Storage - 58.3 GB

Used - 21.3 GB (QUESTION - WHAT IS THIS ????,  How can I review and or delete?  Could this be files uploaded, now unavailable?)

Music 30.4 GB

Pictures 371.3 MB

Videos 2.1 GB


I have spent hours looking at the directories under 'media' and can not find anyting other than the normal as indicated above.   It seem that there is a liinked directgory under misc/google, and that is not the issue.  


SO,  how do i review and or delete the 21.3 of files that might not be needed?  I may have uploaded some files as a backup, BUT I can not find or access the directory.


Thank you!!

Re: Storage Allocation - Blackberry Playbook - Confusing

It could be for the applications you have loaded. I have not found a place yet to see them all, but I have done a quick addition of install requirements space for the apps in the My world section.
