I have the new Kindle 8 with 12.82 GB of Internal Storage

Customer Question

I have the new Kindle 8 with 12.82 GB of Internal Storage used and only 86.8MB remaining. I have nothing on the Kindle but System at 12.7GB and Apps & Games at 32.08MB and Amazon Movies & TV at 1.04MB mISC AT 564kb. This doesn't make sense to me and I am sure that there must be a way to fix it.

Hi there and welcome

It does build up a large cache as you use the Kindle, plus it is suspected any updates are not deleted after installing which all adds to this.

First, hold the power button for 60 seconds, then release. Then power on the Kindle and tell me how much space its now using please.
