OnePlus Media Storage App Reportedly Affected By Bug

OnePlus Media Storage app is reportedly being affected by a weird bug taking up a sizable chunk of storage space for seemingly no reason at all.

The OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro are one of the amazing smartphones of this year, one that didn’t come with unnecessary gimmicks or costs, and one part of that remarkable package that we often take for granted is that these phones come with up to 256 GB of storage — for most people, more than enough space than they'd hope to need.

According to Android Police, owners of the OnePlus 9 Pro, including the publication’s own Artem Russakovskii, noticed that their phones were suddenly running out of storage space, which consequently bogged down the device’s performance.

It was reported that the app will randomly take over 100 GB, which can be enough to grind a user’s phone’s performance down to a halt. The problem has been reported by several people so far, and according to some sources, the data size seems to be misrepresented and not actually taken up by real files. However, freeing it seemingly also results in notable performance improvements, so even if that consumption is virtual, it still has real-world consequences.

One possible fix includes emptying the OnePlus Gallery's "Recently Deleted" trash folder (which can take quite a few minutes depending on how much space it's using). As near as anyone can tell, the issue seems to be related to a series of bugs with the OnePlus Gallery. According to Android Police.

The issue has been reported on Reddit as well as OnePlus' own forums, so hopefully, developers are aware and working on a proper resolution.

However, experts have suggested that deleting the Media Storage app folder could be the best place to start.
