Is there a way to free up system memory and figure out what is taking all the system memory?

What will happen when i run out, it looks like i will run out?

System data use

crest shows ram, not flash space. you can try an app like Space Inspector from Jolla Store

You might want to have a look at unix file system hierarchy. User data for example should reside in /home/nemo

I had same problem and I was going to do factory reset. Before that I was copying stuff to SD card and noticed that there was new folder and old folder. When I erased stuff from that old folder (it wasn't my sdcard folder anymore) i'll get lots of free space in system data. So no need for factory reset.
