How to reduce "System" internal memory storage?

I have an HTC-one-m8 16GB but 10GB of the internal memory is taken up by the "System" and about another 5GB by apps. I have moved as many installed apps and photos to my 32GB SD card and have about 6GB free on that. How can I reduce the amount of memory taken up by the "System" as I am constantly getting low memory warnings?

Besides clearing cache and data for all of the applications as shown in the tutorial, there is little you can do (you can uninstall any applications to free up some internal memory space, as applications keep a part of themselves in the internal memory). Over time, the internal memory gets cluttered, and a hard-reset may be required (you can learn how to do that in this article). Your microSD card will not be touched during the process, and your other data like contacts and purchases will be carried over after you enter the Google account name.

How do I find what is in the "other" category to help free space in phone?

My HTC is running out of space when I go to see what is taking up space the category of "other" pops up. this category is taking up the most space in my phone. I don't know what is in the "other" category so I don't know what to clean up. what is in the other category?
