    Lightbulb How to I increase the device memory individual file size limit beyond 2.86MB?

    Advertisement



    I am interested to learn more about the device memory "file size limit". I recently got a new 8800 and on my first attempt I had 18MB of e-mails loaded onto the device....they came off my old 8700. All was fine until somehow I got re-activated and my e-mails were reduced to the last few days. When I tried to re-load the old e-mails again via the "advanced restore" feature, they max out 1/4 way through the load due to the device memory "file size limit". I have the device memory set at 25MB and I have an external card(small) at 120MB.....Can I increase the device memory individual filze size limit somehow?
    Thx - Greg

    The internal memory I believe isnt upgradable, but you can however, obviously, have a larger memory card. Does this help at all?

    Strange -- I definitely have files larger than that on my device. However they are on the memory card and not on the device memory so that mmight make a difference.

    Thanks everyone.....the main problem is that the internal memory has been "partitioned" such that no one file can be bigger than 2.86MB.....I am trying to load old e-mails(you might ask why bother and I may have to drop the idea). The Advanced Restore.....to load my big file of old e-mails is truncating the file at 2.86MB and not all e-mails are being loaded. The External Memory is working fine for mass storage, pictures, etc.......I wish I could re-allocate the 25MB of internal device memory!!!
