    My miscellaneous files storage shows that I have 8g worth of files but when I click on it to see what files they are nothing shows as being 8g. The biggest file I have is 1.4g and the rest are just a couple of kb's. Any ideas on what these files could be.

    Could that be the operating system and the extra space it sets aside for itself? Mine shows around 6 gigs, and I can't really find where that is located either.

    There is a way to swap the external for internal storage. I followed the directions and have 64gb now as internal storage. That will last me quite awhile.

    It very possibly be showing 8GB of files on the main folder (Misc) but the largest file in the folder shows only 1.4 GB because it takes the total of all files in the folder, adds them up, and gives you the sum of them all as the size.
