    Using a OnePlus 3. Still running smooth and fresh, but might run out of space in the near future. Looking at file manager, there is a file named system.new.dat at around 1.1GB. It's last modified in November 2016.
    Is it safe to delete this file? or is it necessary for the operating system?

    Thanks in advance!

    as you said your storage will run out of space then its better to take a backup of your important data and personal files and factory reset your phone by going into..
    Settings>>System>>Reset options>>Erase all(also select "erase internal storage")
    or you can perform hard reset...

    [PLEASE NOTE:- DONT DELETE ANYTHING YOU DONT KNOW ABOUT. IF YOU DO THEN YOUR PHONE WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY OR WILL MALFUNCTION]
