    2 different 3rd-party apps compute disk space differently from each other, and you're wondering why, am I right?
    Well, you should ask each app dev team how they compute their data, and you'll be able to compare.
    Being 3rd-party apps, it's hard to tell for them.

    No.. its not i i wonderi why.. i canot find what is that.. its ghost files. I dont know what is that. It consume my storage but i dont know why. 1st apl tell my apps is 28gb and my media only 6gb. Which is true my pic and vid only around that big. But ny apps not that big.
    2nd apps tell my apps my pics 28gb. Thats is impossible. My pic and vid are not that big. What i ask is how to find that ghost files. Thx

    Look at this:
    Es Explorer: 28.42+0.15+5.3+0.6=34.47GB of used space.
    Diskusage: 28.5+6.03=34.53GB of used space.
    You see? They show the same amount of used space, but they calculate it differently. And as far as I see, ES Explorer does it wrong.
    What does system tool in the settings show?
    Tap on the "Apps" box in the Diskusage and sum up the sizes of all folders. You will see that it shows the correct value.

    Yes.. the counting is correct. But the problem what is inside that.. i dont have data that big. Thats the problem.
    In Esexplorer what kind of pic total 28gb. My media only 6-7gb..

    In diskusage what kind of apps total 28gb. So the ghostfiles is inside there. Which is i canot find it. Even i try to check 1 by 1. Go inside the folder. I canot find that file so big.

    Yeah u can say that is not problem since my storage still big. Its just annoyed me. Thx anyway for the answers

    Mobile Legends - 2.38GB
    Chrome and ES File Explorer - 2.05GB each
    Few other apps seems also big.
    Go to the Settings -> Applications and check each of them - what size does the system show for them?
