    Help with figuring out databases

    Advertisement



    I'm hoping someone can help me figure something out.
    My wife uses an 8310.
    The only 3rd party apps that she has are Google Maps and Nav4All (GPS).
    She does not sync at all (no DM).
    Aside from that, all she uses her BB for is making calls, appts, emails and texting.
    Every now and then her call logs, emails and texts dissappear.
    I've figured out (ty pinstack) that this is due to the her leaving numerous apps open.
    Recently however, not only were her call logs, emails and texts gone, but the "hourglass" item was constantly popping up.
    Come to find out, she had basically 0 memory available.
    After a little more research via pinstack there are 2 databases that are of concern to me:
    Content Store (38/1484.7K) and
    RMS Databases (5/548.3K).
    After moving all of her pictures from her phone to the media card "Content Store" still remains as 1484.7K (from 2500+K).

    What I'd like to know is:
    What else is stored in "Content Store"? and
    What's in RMS Database?

    Please help.
    Your advice/input is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    There are other things you need to keep an eye on to get that memory total back up, as well as other things you can do to free up some space.

    First, go ahead and delete the Help (you have PinStack for that!) and TTY (unless you have a hearing impairment) applications. This will free up about 5mb. To delete, go to Options>Advanced Options>Applications, scroll to the app, press the BB menu button (left of the trackball) and select Delete.

    Next, you'll want to go through this thread for more ideas and things you can do to free up space.

    After you've done those things, do a battery pull and then check your file free once again.

    Hope this helps!

    Here is an explanation of what databases are on the devices.

    Thanks RoGro.
    Those are some of the items I was going to do next.
    I was curious as to why her memory was so full being that she only uses for calls, texts, email and appts.
    I'm particularly interested in what those 2 databases are.

    Well, if she saves her call logs, emails and texts, that stuff starts adding up. Plus BlackBerry devices are notorious for slow memory leaks over time.
