How to Clean Corrupted Media Files on iPhone Permanently

Recently some users come to me and complain that when they were transferring music in PC to iPhone (about 8,000 songs), they accidently plugged the USB cable out (around 5,000 songs completed), resulting in failure of sync. Worse still, iTunes displayed that 35GB of 'Other' space was occupying their iPhones. (None of the apps would account for the 35GB of space taken up.) Frankly speaking, it is the corrupted media files of the failure syncing that leads to the situation. Instead of restoring iPhone, I will recommend you to remove corrupted media files on iPhone7 (Plus)/6s (Plus)/6 (Plus)/5s/5/4s/4 with Tenorshare iCareFone, the best free iPhone cleaning software.
