    When going to load some TV shows on to my iPad I notice there was not enough room (16BG iPad 3). In itunes the "other" category was taking up 7.63 GB of space.
    I could not figure out what this was and ended up doing a factory reset. I've disabled photo stream, contacts, etc. basically anything that would sync unneeded info.
    After the reset I set up the iPad as a "new" iPad so it wouldn't perform a back up an load all the crap that I tried to delete.
    Well...today I went back to load some shows and there is still 7.63 GB of "other" info?
    Any Idea what this is or how I can find out what this is, so I can delete it?
    I've gone to setting->General->usage and besides not having many items in there, nothing is taking up more than like 715MB

    Help? and thanks!

    The "other" category contains the operating system, stock apps, app data, etc..

    When you restored your iPad to factory conditions and set it up as a new iPad, what did you install in the way of apps? Some apps are data hogs, especially some games and magazine subscriptions. A year of National Geographic would easily use up over 5GB.
