    How to correct storage indicated as used


    In Storage Usage-Apps and Games, the amount of storage used is listed as much higher than the actual amount used. How can I correct this?

    How are you comparing them?

    Storage app doesn't include compression (that can reduce games size by 70%). All it shows is the developers guess.

    Can you give an example of how big something is shown and how big you think it should be.

    TreeSize Free gives a reasonable estimate usually.

    EDIT: Another thought - do you use Steam? There were bugs in the Steam App showing size to be sum of everything installed. Anyway, have a look with TreeSize and see.
