I've bought an Asus E200HA as a secondary laptop. It has a 32GB eMMC drive, so I'm trying to free up as much space as possible. However, out of the box, it came with about 4GB of "other" files (I assume that's what it's called in the storage menu in English, I'm using a different language version). After installing the Anniversary Update, it grew to more than 5 GB (I don't think it's old Windows files or temporary files, as I've deleted that already). What is strange is that when I open the "other files" in the Storage menu, the largest folder in there is the 542MB ESD folder and then the next largest is 33,22MB (at least I assume that's the way it works... it only shows the biggest files, doesn't it?). So apparently it's just lots of small folders. Is it supposed to be like that? Do I actually need those files? If not, how can I remove them?


Best regards
