Questions on getting "other" data off ipad

October 11Hits:0
Advertisement
I have been reading the threads, but before I do a full restore I have a few questions.
I have about 2GB of "other" space on my 8GB ipad 2 (OS 7 withou the latest patch). I need to get rid of it because I can't load the new OS and I have the ipad down to bare bones.
Anyway, I was reading that "other" could be corrupted data or stuff that apps are using. I got rid of my photos. All I have is apps, and music plus the files I store in pages.
1. How can I tell which apps are sucking up space?
2. If I do a restore, will the corrupted data just come back from my MBP onto my ipad? I am backing up to the MBP and also syncing everything in icloud. This is where my brain gets lost because I don't understand where the bad data is being stored.
Any thoughts or hints would be appreciated before I start doing neurosurgery.
Thanks in advance!

How much space is used by your Other? You may be able to reduce.

With an iOS device, the “Other” space in iTunes is used to store things like documents, settings, caches, and a few other important items. If you sync lots of documents to apps like GoodReader, DropCopy, or anything else that reads external files, your storage use can skyrocket. With iOS 5/6/7, you can see exactly which applications are taking up the most space. Just head to Settings > General > Usage, and tap the button labeled Show All Apps. The storage section will show you the app and how much storage space it is taking up. Tap on the app name to get a description of the additional storage space being used by the app’s documents and data. You can remove the storage-hogging application and all of its data directly from this screen, or manually remove the data by opening the app. Some applications, especially those designed by Apple, will allow you to remove stored data by swiping from left to right on the item to reveal a Delete button.
