Hi Guys,


I wonder if someone can help me here. I'm not a noob to PocketPC or Smartphones, but i've not come across this one before.

Once i purchased and installed all my desired apps for my M5000, I had about 18mb of storage space left.

This was about 2 weeks ago.


Now i have 749k, without having installed anything else to main memory. :D


I've made sure that any application which has a data cache (that i'm aware of) is configured to use the storage card, eg message stores, camera etc.

On the phone I have:

Wisbar Adv.
Opera
Journal Bar
CodeWallet
iLauncher
TCPMP
Skype
Resco Explorer

Are any of these given to eating up memory apparently at random? Is there any util I could buy that would help me track down the source of the problem? I have to admit, i'm suspicious of JournalBar, but it's deffinately set to use the memory card for storage.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this is driving me nucking futs at the moment. :D

Hi if youve used opera and/or IE for browsing - go into those apps and clear the caches. Also check the notes programs to make sure there are no voice recordings that have been activated by mistake (in my documents)

Ah, thanks Matt.

Yes, sorry, I should've said that i've cleared all the obvious caches. Good call on the notes, but nope, not that either.

I now have 0bytes of storage memory, so the unit isn't working at all well now. It can't populate the remove programs list...

I also tried to install the demo of Memmaid last night, but it told me the program wasn't digitally signed, so i couldn't install it... :D :D

I don't know if this applies to a M5000, but with the M2000 if you used bluetooth (headset in my case) there was a log file that grew and grew.

If you unlock your phone you can install it. I did the day befre yesterday but unlocked my phone a while ago so can't remember how I did it. If you can't find details of how to, let me know and I'll have a poke arround and see what I can find.

Memmaid is rather good at highlighting problems like this.
