I sometimes use AndroZip to install apps directly from my phone.

Have a similar problem. I'm also running low on memory suddenly. Wiped dalvik-cache but hardly gained anything. Read this thread and ran the code. My /data/data directory is 77,7 M which seems quite high and also full of files . Is it safe to delete these files in the same manner described in this thread?

would solve the problem, but comes close to a factory reset. /data/data is where your apps settings are stored. as you may have forseen, here is your first task:
adb shell du -hs /data/*

Here it comes:

122.0K /data/anr
512 /data/app
512 /data/app-private
4.0K /data/btips
18.6M /data/dalvik-cache
77.8M /data/data
512 /data/drm
3.5K /data/dropbear
114.0K /data/local
2.0K /data/lost+found
25.0K /data/misc
3.5K /data/property
265.0K /data/system

Since I don't have all that many apps downloaded the 77.8 M in /data/data seems quite high

adb shell du -hs /data/data/*

When running the above command I noticed this:

53.1M /data/data/com.android.browser

Seems like this is the main problem. Is this the browser cache? Can I delete this file without causing any major issue?

make a backup and try... or check the contents of that folder, if the subfolder cache is the big one just delete the contents, should be safe:
adb shell rm -r /data/data/com.android.browser/cache/*

After further investigation a subfolder "app_plugins" seems to be the major problem. To a large extent the folder is populated by files (around 100) named WKP???? These files account for more than 30 M. The files vary in size from 0-600 K.

What are these WKP-files?

I regained some memory space by clearing cookies, cache & history in settings menu for browser.

Removed these WKP-files (after saving) without any noticeable ill effects. Regained a lot of space!

Still curious about what these files originate from if anyone can enlighten me.

Hello, I'm a french men. Thus sorry for my English.
I'have too a low phone storage but when I type the command I'have the following result :

D:\java\android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>adb shell mount /data
Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t type] device directory

D:\java\android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/*
rm failed for /data/local/tmp/*, No such file or directory

The command adb shell rebootwork perfectly.
