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.

    Like a 😵Crunk Squirrel. My weirdex 920/820 processor kluge has to be reloaded frequently, how long it takes is the answer, but it did some work, then crashed repeatedly. Windows 8 doesn't want you to be able to maintain your memory. App could work, but a class action lawsuit against Microsoft would get their attention to design decent OSs. Notice how many Google apps are in the store? Check it out if you care. 😈 It worked, now it crashes.

    This app has always worked well for me, but I'm suspecting that Microsoft doesn't approve of it anymore. It doesn't show up when I search for it in the Windows store, and the app closes as soon as I open it. The least Microsoft could do is display a notification that they no longer support the app, instead of radio silence...

    Good. Turn off cellular or Wi-Fi before start this app to protect app crash.

    Stops immediately after starting. Never gets to the screen to do the cleaning. It flashes briefly and then closes. Doesn't work at all for me on an HTC 8XT.
