My memory is getting very low.I know about all the move to SD methods; I want to try and get rid of some unused data first.I always see posts about clear data and clear cache.Yes, this frees up space but do the apps actually need this data? What is the difference between data and cache? e.g.If I clear data from my contacts app, will all my contacts be deleted?What am I safe to clean up? Is there a way of cleaning up everything at once? Is there an equivalent to defrag and disc clean up? Any advice on getting some memory back without moving apps would be great.
My phone and sd card memory is very full and im sure that a lot of this is unused folders and data left behind by old uninstalled apps, temporary files etc. Is there some kind of disk clean up app i could get to remove all of this junk?
I bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 Hercules (T-Mobile) and its used. In the Last week I pull some photos and mistakenly delete them, but with my "Recurva" program i could see all the photos (mine and others owners)
On the one hand I'm happy for having recovered, but if one day I want to permanently delete photos, I have the fear that the other person recovers.
How I can delete all photos, videos and files in the cache memory?
Is it ok to drop Pending Intents in android if they are never used. Such as in an AppWidgetProvider where a Pending Intent that was never used be overwritten by a new Pending Intent. Or should we call cancel on all unused Pending Intents to clean up memory appropriately?
I was running rooted 2.1 and then did a clean install to 2.2. I went to marketplace, and SOME of my previously paid for apps showed up as 'purchased' which I then reinstalled fine, but a lot of the rest are not even appearing when I search for them, although their free demo versions do appear. My google checkout lists all the apps I paid for no problems when I look at purchase history on a computer, but still, I cannot even search for these paid apps, let alone attempt to install them!
I have a 4GB SD card and it thinks that it has a total of 200MB on there (Its empty). I have tried formatting it using my Mac & via the phone itself but it continues to believe that its a 200MB MiniSD card.
Not had my desire long but down loaded a few apps for it they all seem to be stored on phone memory not the sd card. what is stored to the sd card seems to be unused so far. do you have to set it up to use sd card or does it know one is fitted. does it switch to sd card when phone memory full. will run out of space soon if can't get things to store to card instead of phone mem.
I got my phone yesterday and been playing with it since. Good bits-going on the net is quick, clear and very smooth. Customizing is very good. Bad bits-would have thought it would come with a video player that could play any type of format. I can't put apps onto mem card, thought the hole point of being able to put a large size mem card into the phone was so you could put all the extras onto the card. This is the main let down for me, got some apps on the phone last night then the phone said it had run out memory. I've seen that rooting can change this but don't fancy voiding my warranty. Wonder if a future update would cover this.
I have had my desire for one week now and have been playing around with apps etc (first android phone)I got a message today saying my phone memory was low (at one point i couldn't install an app. I have always uninstalled apps that i do not want and i have also moved as many as will allow to the SD card. Now i o dont think i have many apps installed (13 that wont allow me to move to the SD card) and yet i seem to be at my limit. Is this normal and is there a way around it. I was expecting to be able to install a lot more than this or is it a limitation of the desire? Currently my phone is showing 25.00MB of space left but i have just had to unistall afew as it was showing 17MB previously.
I have literally had this phone for 5 days and its saying low internal memory. I have no idea where the hell it all went. right now it says 15.7mb internal memory. I have moved most of my apps to sd card aswel. I had an HTC hero with virtually the same apps, and not once did it say low on memory so is my desire faulty ?
According to android information system; the max internal memory is 147mb, I have 14.75 mb (9%) left. This means I have used 132,75mb. According to app brain, I have 69 apps with a total of 140mb. Surely the move to SD built into froyo should move more than 7.25mb? Most of my apps have the feature. I know this is the poorest way of getting apps to SD but surely it should move more than that? I am going to have a go at the noob guide to moving apps to SD later to see if it improves things. I need to do something. I am at a stage now where apps not update. i have to uninstall the old version and then reinstall the new version.
I've noticed that the Internal memory of my Desire seems to filling up even though im not adding new files/downloading any new apps... Im using wi-fi several times a day to check emails, update friendstream etc... but there seems to be no major correlation with the memory increase.
As a guide memory usage has gone from 72mb to 82mb in the last 5-7 days
Is this normal? how i can clear out any files that may be accumulating? Obviously concerned as internal memory is limited as it is and if this continues it wont be long til the phone fills itself up!
My phone storage on my HTC Desire seems to be permanently full up, I know there's things like the Internet cache and contacts that are growing all the time but I should still have enough room for other stuff. I've installed and moved all apps to my sd card, I only have 35 or so and there all fairly small little apps but I use them all.
Yet I am always getting the phone is running low on memory message, so I cant install anything from the app store. Thing is I still have 11.55 mb of phone memory but I feel I should have loads more, there's only really a few things taking up memory from what I can see in my apps because everything else is on my sd card.
Contacts Storage: 17.34mb Flash Player 10.1 : 12.39mb Maps ; 7.75mb Swype: 5.96mb Facebook: 3.80mb Voice Search: 2.57mb HTC Sense : 2.30mb Internet : 2.39mb
Everything else is all really under 1mb. Is there some other files or something lurking on my phone memory that shouldn't be there?
Will this memory card be any good for my Desire or will I need a different one. I need one that is just cheap and not too slow. Wanted too store pictures etc. http://www.play.com/Mobiles/Mobile/4-/3564175/Sandisk-8GB-Micro-SDHC-Memory-Card/Product.html
I have rooted my Desire and it works like a charm. Now when I want to upgrade my memory card from a 4Gb to a 8Gb card, I ran into some problems! My Desire refuses to start up with the new card, it comes to the boot screen and loops from there! What am I doing wrong?
I have had my desire about 2 weeks now and it is great. I have updated to 2.2 and all seemed to be working fine but today I keep getting error messages saying Low on space - the phones storage is getting low and Not enough storage space for sms.Don't know why this is as I only have about 10 apps installed and have moved the ones I can to the SD card.Is anyone else having this problem?any ideas people?
I was having trouble getting an album icon to show up when transferring from pc to phone. I ended up trying to sync the album from Windows Media Player but it started syncing EVERYTHING so I stopped it. Then when I plugged it into the pc again it said I'd only got 1gb of memory on the card when I started it was 3.6gb. I've officially only put 6 albums on about 400mb in total yet spent 2.6gb. I'm assuming the tracks I accidentally synced are the cause yet when I open up the drive there's no sign of them. Anyone any ideas how or where I can find them & remove them?
Even though I am on 2.2 and alot of my apps have bee moved to SD, I still only have 12% left.my most recent downloads havent helped as they cannot be moved; a few icon packs, folder organizer, android agenda widget and astrid, still, before this, I was still only on 20% Are apps fully moved with the move to SD option in 2.2?
Just got myself a desire (unlocked and unbranded). I check today for updates and a message came on the screen saying the 2.2 update was available. I only have 36MB of space left on the phone (installed quite a few apps)yet the update is a massive 91MB. Will I need to uninstall apps to install the update?
I am using a Desire. Was wondering why is there such a low space in the phone memory? I cannot hold more than 5 applications and the phone says i am running low on space...Is there any specific files I can delete without damaging my operating system?
Now a big problem is with an unrooted handset you start off with low internal memory as it is, but after I got the low memory message after numerous times I thought perhaps I would start deleting apps, unneeded texts, limiting the amount of emails and texts that my phone will store at once. That fixed the problem for a while but over time I would keep getting the numerous low memory messages again. Now I'm at the point where I have around 8 apps that weren't included with the phone and I keep getting the message. I know if I were to restore the phone to factory then this would fix it temporarily but after another month of use I'm sure it'll do it again. Any tips?
