hi everyone, the memory manager says me "Sailfish Os and other files"l is occupying 4.4 gb of memory, is this normal?just for info, i'm on latest update...

Also on latest OS here, 5.7GB occupied, which is odd, I have next to nothing on my device. Time to investigate.

you're right, but how to investigate?

Don't forget that for the "factory reset"-feature the original version of the OS is also still on the device. Basically, you have two installations of SailfishOS on your device. I think it's absurd, but I guess it's the only way for "average Joe" to get his device working in case of problems. Connecting the thing to a PC and flashing a clean image seems to go beyond most people's technical ability these days.

Download Space Inspector from Jolla Store. SDcard contents are counted, which for me is 1.7gb of 5.7gb.

are you talking about factory reset?

will download space inspector anyway, but i do not see how the situation could differ from the integrated memory manager...
