    So, I recently noticed that I was running out of space, no biggie, I'll just uninstall some apps, but then it just kept on filling up, without me doing anything, until it got to the point where I had almost 36 GB being taken up by "other",
    after further inspection I found files in folders named media>oem_log>btsnoop, there i saw files named hci_snoop_(dates of the year) with the biggest one taking up almost 5 GB
    I have no clue of what those files are used for, how they got there, or anything... Right now I have 53,97 GB used up xD

    btsnoop is Androids Blue Tooth sniffer and the hci files are the logfiles.
    In developer mode disable Bluetooth HCI snoop log and delete the hci files.
