I don't get it. I need those extra GBs you know. What am I going to do? I had friends with the same problems, they tried to unroot it and both memories went corrupt.
So I need to be extra careful about this. I don't want to lose anything anymore.

Go to Settings > Storage > View Usage > Internal Storage, you will get a breakdown of what is using the space.
It is most likely Android system files.

Well, isn't this taking too much?
It already consumed this unaccessible 6GB and also this?

That does seem about right for system files.
Here's some tips for managing your memory.
Uninstalling unwanted applications to increase the amount of free internal memory
If the Uninstall option isn't available, the application can't be deleted. Most preinstalled applications can't be deleted as they are integrated in the operating system of your device. All applications that you have downloaded and installed from Google Play™ can be deleted.
To uninstall an application
Clearing the cache and the data of applications on a regular basis
Applications occupy an increasing amount of storage when they are in use. The occupied storage can be distinguished into:
To delete the cache or the data of an application
Backing up data to different memory types
Generally, you should not save photos, videos and other personal content solely in the internal memory of your device. If something should happen with the hardware, or if the device is lost or stolen, the data stored in the device internal memory is gone forever.
You do not need to back up or make a copy of applications that you downloaded from Google Play™ (Play Store). They can normally be downloaded again if you have set up a Google™ account in your device. You can find the apps which you have purchased under My apps in Google Play™, so you will not need to either pay, or search, for them again.

Here I would add that apps that can not be uninstalled can be disabled. This will reduce their size to original, thus saving some space also.

I had the same problem - when using my file manager to transfer files (File Commander), the copy failed but the data was stored in the file manager's cache. The problem was that the file manager's own cache doesn't show up, so there's no way to delete it from within the file manager iteslf. Clearing the cache and data worked and there was no data loss in the process. Thanks!
