    It is Rock's log that is causing the issue. At the top of this board is a sticky about it.

    Rock is not always to blame. I had over 6gb of other and my entire RYP (rock folder) was less then 1MB. My issue was that for some reason my iphone/itunes decided to copy all of my apps that were already installed back to my iphone. Problem was itunes sync would fail. After some hunting around on my iphone I found that in /private/var/mobile/Media/PublicStaging were copies of all of my already installed apps. I deleted everything in this folder and got my 6GB back.

    iTunes Stores Some Garbage Or "Mystery" Files On iDevices. This Is An Error That iTunes Encounters While Syncing. You Should Do A Clean Restore If You Want, But The Rock Issue As Mention Is Just A Fraction Of It

    Now: In Google Type "iPhone Browser" And Download & Install. Plug In Your iPhone And It Will Show All The Directpries Within Your iPhone. Just Browse For Any Large Files. Post Some Unknown Files Here So I Can Tell You Whether To Delete them or not (List of names of files)

    Also: Brinky Is Right, Excess Files Are Stored Here For Backup Purposes, Delete These.
