    Hey everyone,

    Today I couldn't sink my iPhone. iTunes says that my "Other" files (as shown as Orange in color in the Summary for the iPhone in iTunes) is 4.4GB big! Ouch.

    What files are in there? I have unselected about every file I have and still no go.

    Anyone know what files types Apple classifies as Other?

    Many thanks,
    Dave

    I searched Apple and this is a known "USB Syncing" issue some people have had. I guess I will Restore the iPhone and hope for the best.

    I will report back if it fixes the issue.

    Here is the link for anyone else who needs it:
    Apple - Support - Discussions - 5Gigas of "Other" files ...

    P.S. Hopefully it restores better than my Treos.

    The iPhone backup went very good. No issues, other than taking forever.
