Windows Phone 8 has one major problem with its storage handling. The phone storage (Other / Apps) grows and grows until your phone has no more space left.

This App tries to reduce this storage with the following trick:

* It completely fills your internal storage
* Then you restart your phone
* Hopefully, some storage will be released
* Remove filled storage manually using this App

The result (gained free storage) will differ from phone to phone. There’s no guarantee that Windows Phone will free some storage. Usually, it does when you use this App for the first time.


If you use this App to block the Windows Phone storage to avoid continuous storage growth, you could use the new Control Mode. If you need some storage to install a new App, just release some Megabytes.

    It does work, trust me guys! Yes, in the beginning all it does is crash; but wait a few hours (or maybe even a day) and just follow the instructions and you'll get some space back!
