    What the heck is "System Data" and how do you delete it?

    "It's part of the OS, dear boy. You can't delete it." No it isn't. It shows up in the DiskUsage app and is not part of the operating system. It takes 235 MB on my HTC one m8. It increases with time. A month ago it was only 40 MB. And DiskUsage won't let me delete it. And here the problem is...
