Default Where's My Memory Gone?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey Everyone,

I'm still learning the ropes of my 8830. I've been checking out apps to find replacements for what I used regularly on my Treo.

Last night while loading a couple apps, I got the error that I was dangerously low on system memory. I checked out the status and had only a few MB free. This morning I had 0mg free. I did a batt pull now my Status says:

File Free - 4835306 Bytes (4.6MB)
File Total - 47841280 Bytes (45.6MB)

First of all, I didn't think I had a whole lot installed and I've deleted things like the other languages, sample video and such that has been mentioned elsewhere to improve space. I've made sure that ringtones, pics and video are on my 1GB card. I'm evaluating software so I don't know which I will use and which I won't yet. I can't believe that I'm using 40MB or more yet.

How can I find out where all my space has gone? Is it possible to see what's using the most space?

Here's some apps that I have installed:
Beiks Dictionary Reader
Olivetree Bible Reader
Mobipocket Reader
Handmark Blackjack
Worldmate Live
Password Keeper
Pocket Tipper
Calculator
Memopad
Task
Brickbreaker
Facebook
Blackberry Manager
Infospace Find It
GCalSync
AvantGo
On-Demand
Google Maps
Blackberry Maps
6 Themes

I'm I really running too many apps?
