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.

    This worked very well for me. I'm running the latest 8.1 developer preview and after turning on the airplane mode I set it going up the space, when there was about 1gb if disk left it crashed. I restarted, instant native speed improvement. I went to open disagree shrink again and it crashed, but I managed to open it just long enough to hit the delete button. (you could just uninstall if necessary). I think there is some mechanism in windows phone to prevent apps doing this (it looks like a memory leak after all). But it still worked for me.

    This is a piece of garbage app... I started it to fill it up and now the memory is full and the app do not open. Everytime I try to open it it suddenly stops and takes me out. Now what can I do?
