Samsung Galaxy 4s - cleaning up files on device

by trickpony1950 / June 19, 2015 5:13 AM PDT

I'm wondering what files I can "trash" on my Settings - Storage - Miscellaneous Files site. I cleared the Cache. First time to do this and I don't want to trash anything important that must stay. I'm looking at the list and don't know what most of these files are about.

Any suggestions of what else I can trash to free up more space on my storage?

Thanks for any and all assistance.

The new forum let's you post pictures and words. Tell more.

Also, we all backup our stuff so why not trash it and see?

Use App to check your files before deleting them

You can use file manager app like ES File Explorer to check the files on your device and decide whether you need delete them or not.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
