Stopping Samsung Galaxy S2 data partition filling up

We have a number of Galaxy S2's that we use for Serval.  Some of those we keep "stock", so no root or anything fancy, for testing Serval Mesh on. The one of those I use as my day-to-day phone has recently been filling up the internal storage so that I couldn't install even small apps, even though I had very little installed on the phone.

After a bit of digging around, I discovered that this can be fixed by dialling *#9900# and then choosing the option to delete logcat.  Suddenly my phone was back to having 1.6GB of free space on the internal storage :)

Hopefully this will help others who encounter the same problem.
