Excessive "Other" Data
I own a 64 GB iPod Touch 5th gen.; today I was syncing the iPod into my laptop and apparently the sync process took longer than usual so I cancelled the process (I believe that may be the cause of this problem). The problem is that my 'Other' storage bar, BEFORE, was and has always been around 2 to 3 GB, but now it's at 13 GB, which is ridiculously high. I wonder if my actions was the cause of this big rise of storage. My Safari data is only 4.1 megabytes. iPod has 50 apps which total 5.19 GB, no videos, music (lots of it) of 19.62 GB, 39.8 MB of photos, and 92.9 MB of documents & data. Any advice and/or help would be greatly appreciated.
I also had a problem with my songs, in which after the syncing process, some songs copied, so there were 2 files of the same song; and because i have around 2300 songs in my iPod, I had to manually look over every song and make sure which one didn't get repeated. ALSO, almost half of my songs were deleted, which made things frustrating. To save time of putting back songs from my library into my iPod, i clicked on 'Autofill", but then that made things even worse, recopying songs and adding more songs than what I had before.
My main issue now is that 'Other' big storage
