    File system full?, new OS problem?

    Advertisement



    I havnt seen anyone post this yet, and it's driving me a bit nuts.

    I updated to the new OS yesterday and everything is running PERFECTLY, I love the new system. Although, when take a picture (same settings as before), after the picture is taken it automatically goes to the save option and says "file system full".

    The directory I'm saving them to is "memory/home/user/pictures/" and into the Device Memory.

    Anyone?

    Device memory wont hold too much. Do you have an SD card that you can save it too instead?

    no, but looks like i'll have to go get one.

    I didnt have this problem before hand though, does the new OS take up that much more room? I have 4655600 bytes of free file space

    I don't think the new OS takes up a lot more memory but I couldn't tell you for sure. I have an extra Micro SD card that was left over after I sold my Pearl. Could give ya a GREAT deal on it! Just gotta delete my songs and "Private" pics first. haha.

    I actually already sold my Pearl but kept the SD card. It's only a 1gb card and so it depends on how much stuff you wanna hold. I never filled it up but it was mainly for pictures and not movies and stuff. Let me know and we can work out a price. Peace!

    I also have an extra microSD card, 1 GB for sale. I won't sell it until ktorres has sold his, I don't want to step on anyone's toes, and I'm not that desperate to sell it, but once he's sold his, if anyone wants to PM me, I'll be glad to let it go cheap.

    Re: File system full?, new OS problem?

    ok, this doesnt make sense. After the OS update I only have 3835328 bites of space, that's what, 3mb? I have a few pictuers and a few apps (opera, jive, google maps, and a few BB games) but there's no way they could take up that much space, I should have aroudn 23mbs left. Do I somehow have both 101 and 103 installed on my bb?

    If you have any pictures or music or ringtones that would be taking up most of the space. Maybe themes?

    You only have 64mb of memory on the phone total. The OS will take up about 20mb so that gives you ONLY 40mb to work with.

    Something is taking up the space try to find it. Have you tired a battery pull?

    Re: File system full?, new OS problem?

    i deleted a few pictures and so forth and got 11mbs of free space. no music though or anything on the phone. Is there a way I can see what's on the phone starting with what takes up the largest amount of space?

    Go to Status, Menu, Database Sizes

    EDIT: That just shows the databases. Not third party or applications.

    I dont think I did that. Will I have to re-install the OS in order for that to work?

    Filling up your memory on your phone isn't good at all! I will slow your system down alot! just like your PC the more memory it has the slower the processor becomes. SD cards are the best there sold everwhere! not to be rude to the people trying to sell theres but just got to walmart a get on for like 20 bucks!
