    Hi there, this are all the files that you have downloaded in whatsapp that is taking up the storage of 15GB. Mine takes up 35GB.

    Go to Whatsapp, tap on three dots on top right, Settings, Storage and data, Manage Storage and delete what you do not require.

    Also, go to Whatsapp, tap on three dots on top right, Settings, Storage and data, check Media auto download and toggle it to No media for all the options, so that whatsapp does not download on its own and fill up the storage.

    Cheers.

    Install CX File Explorer app allow the permissions, and go to Android - Data and search for whatsapp folder and see how much storage it is taking.

    OnePlus file manager doesn't have the permission of viewing files in Android-Data

    If nothing works, would it be feasible for you to backup your WhatsApp data, then re-install WhatApp, restore data, and see the storage after that?

    I had the exact same problem and it got fixed when you uninstall whatsapp and reinstall it. But do remember to back your whatsapp app first.
