iXpand Drive app eats space on iPhone

[ Edited ]

Hello dear everyone,


My wife's phone has a strange problem with iXpand Drive application that I'm trying to solve. The app itself works fairly well, however, it takes up a LOT of space on the iPhone. Currently it shows up in iPhone Storage Overview as using 116,5 Mb for the app and whopping 21,9 Gb for "Documents & Data". Could you please hint what could be the reason for this? Also, is it safe to just delete and reinstall the app?


Some additional details:


  • The phone is iPhone 7, 128 Gb
  • The drive that is currently used is iXpand Flash Drive 3.0 32 Gb
  • Before this one there was another 64 Gb drive that has been since lost. If there is any chance to restore at least part of the photos that have been lost together with it from some internal iXpand Drive app cache, I'd be interested to know about that as well

Thanks in advance!

Re: iXpand Drive app eats space on iPhone

Does SanDsik support monitor any of these forums?  


My SanDisk iXpand is ALSO using several Gb of data ... on the iPhone ... hmm, i bought this belessed thing to 'EXPAND' my iPhone's limited 32Gb ... not for the SanDisk iXpand to USE the internal iPhone storage (except for the app itself) ...


Why is this app so stupid that it has to store 'data' on the phone and not just put the 'data' on the iXpand external drive?  


Andybody have any ideas - or ... does SanDisk need to modify their app so it does NOT do this ???
