    Memory Issues

    Advertisement



    Hello all

    I have a problem with the memory of my 8120.

    Basically i have 12.8MB free of the 54.1MB. I checket the database sizes and I have 53.6MB allocated to the "content store".


    What is the "content store", how can i reach it and how can I free up some space?

    Any inputs?

    Thanks

    Have you performed a battery pull ?

    Do you do alot of Internet Browsing on your phone ?

    I think the dBase is related to the Internet Cache

    you could do a battery pull...you also go to

    OPTIONS>SECURITY>Memory Cleaning

    This will clean the devices memory

    or

    Clear the content store database.

    1. Connect the handheld to your personal computer with a universal serial bus (USB) cable.
    2. Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager and double-click Backup and Restore.
    3. Click Advanced.
    4. In the Handheld Databases list, highlight Content Store. Click Clear.
    5. If you are prompted with a warning, click OK to continue.
    6. Click Close > Close to return to Desktop Manager

    Content Store size may be related to media files saved on your device. Do you have a micro sd card installed? If not, you may find that pictures, ring tones, music, etc will fill your memory quite quickly.

    Thanks for the reply

    To answer your first question, yes i do a lot of brosing.
    I did the memory cleaning option before and it did not help much.

    I'll try the other option.
    By the way what does the content store have in it?

    Thanks

    FYI....from the BTSC....

    "The Content Store database on the BlackBerry smartphone may become quite large. The Content Store database is in the same location on the BlackBerry smartphone where media items such as; pictures, ring tones, and voice notes are stored. BlackBerry smartphones with integrated cameras may not have a microSD card, thus pictures that are taken are stored in the Content Store database of the BlackBerry smartphone memory. Pictures taken at the maximum resolution and quality will take up more space causing a low memory situation. "

    I have a media card but its basically empty. That is what got me initially, why if i have a media card will the device use its memory and not use the media card. Also i haven't downloaded much to my phone. I have to get a bigger SD card also. the 8120 came with a 256MB card.

    By the way whats the biggest size the phone can handle?

    Thank

    THanks for the article. if i erase the database will the phone go crazy when its trying to save a file to that database and it can't find it? Or will it just create a new one?

    Thanks

    Pueto,

    Do you have any media saved on your device? Is your media card properly formated and is media card support set to on?
