@charaf500 this is an old question and only gets answered for completion sake. The files that make up the “Other” storage space is usually a combination of caches from apps, browsers, mail, messages and other orphaned data. To clear all of it, all you have to do is to backup and restore the device.

You can of course clean the smaller parts of "others" by cleaning the individual apps cache. Check on here for more information about that.

All you can here is see what storage space is left. You can't correct the problem.
