Disk Inventory X or WhatSize are both excellent apps for giving you a complete list of what's taking up space. Also, as you described there is a way to start at the root and check the size of each folder, drilling down until you find the culprit. Command-I or Get-Info from the the right click menu will show you the size of any folder or file you select.

There is a neat App called Disk Inventory X that I use personally that represents graphically the space taken by files and folders. http://www.derlien.com/index.html

Finally found it :) Under home directory Library has all the data and most of them came from mail app which includes downloaded imap copies and attachments. I erased them by using mail app and everything is fine for now.

Assuming you are talking about videos that are in Photos: You need at least iOS 8.0.2 to do this. Go to Settings -> iCloud -> Photos -> Enable iCloud Photo Library (yes it works for videos as well) It's still in beta so read the warning it will show you carefully.

You could use a different cloud service. Dropbox offers 2GB of free space (or 1TB for $9.99 a month or $99 a year) When you connect your phone, it will sync your photos & videos under a folder called "Camera Uploads". Once your videos are in your dropbox account, you can safely delete them from your phone and get that space back. Also, Google Drive is ...

Unfortunately, iCloud will not sync your videos from your iPhone. They will not be available in your photo stream or when you do a restore. Check out For more reference

iBooks with multi-media content, graphic novels, or comic books, can take up several orders of magnitude more memory than novels which are 99% text with a map or cover photo as their only images. Most of my books are less than 2MB. But I have a couple of books, all from the iBooks store, that are more than 100MB. PDF files can also get quite large, since ...

If you are talking about using windows explorer to delete files, that would be of no help. Windows Explorer can ONLY see photos and videos. It treats the phone as a camera and can only see such. Use iTunes to manage the storage of the device. It will even give you a breakdown of whats using the most on the phone. Alternatively you can go to Settings -> ...

For those who are still getting this problem with iOS 8 I tried using iCloud to backup for the first time (no data had been used). It said it couldn't as the backup would need 9.7gb. I tried just turning off the larger items but it was still at 7gb. Quite bizarre that you need to tap the off toggle AND THEN TAP DELETE IN A POPUP ALERT!!! I mean, who on earth ...

Ed, Thanks! Looks like iOS 8.0.2 was downloaded with iTunes even though I didn't request it. Where it used to ask if I wanted to download iOS 8.0.2, it NOW says "Install Now" as you pointed out. (Also, it no longer says I need 5.8 GB of space, even though I only have 3 GB left.That must be because it ALREADY used 3 GB downloading iOS 8.0.2.) I ...

For my phone - the space was being taken up by the download and unpacked iOS 8, which was waiting to be installed. Once I installed the software - the "missing" space appeared again, and the bar displaying my drive capacity was reflecting correctly. I would check that first - to see if it already downloaded the update. The link will say "Install Now" on ...
