    Hi

    My phone is hidding 8.2Gb on eternal memory. And when I go to the miscellaneous thing there is no more then 100mb of files. I tried a root browser, no success. How to find those files so I can delete them.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum. A bit more info would be helpful. When you say external memory is that an SD card?

    I had the exact same problem... I found mine with es file Explorer.
    They were buried in a file called data/backups.. I'm on a custom recovery (TWRP) and had 3 stock backups taking up 3gb of data!
    These files are BURIED! but you can find them .. Good luck
