    Have you tried a cleaner app such as "Clean Master" from the Google Play Store?

    Do you have sideloaded apps?

    Be careful deleting anything in that folder. It contains symbolic references to all of your music, pictures, videos etc but if you DELETE those supposed links, the real items will be deleted, too.

    @Tryfe I have Cache Cleaner installed but I'll grab the one u are suggesting.

    @F2, I have Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Vine and FlightTracker sideloaded.

    This is not the real size of it, it's the size of it + the size of all of your media folders...

    It contains shortcuts for the other media so it's reachable for android apps..

    Regarding memory, my personal experience is when the phone is full it's full... I backed up my contacts and wiped it. because I tried deleting every single app and only managed to get 16% free memory..

    So I wiped and loaded back my contacts and copied my media over and I'm back at 70% free...

    On the +side I only had to do this after 10 months of using the phone and trying every single free app on it..

    I don't know if it helps in your case, but if you use markets for android apps like snap etc. everytime you download and update apps they save the .apk in misc>android>download.
    I deleted them and saved a lot of space on my z10.
