Default Is there a way to see a breakdown of file space usage?

Please Login to Remove!

I know you can go to status to see how much you have free, but is there a way to see what takes up how much space? Like maybe a file system view or something? Either in the phone or through desktop manager would be good. I only have like 9mb left and that doesn't seem like much compared to the 50+ megs available. What's a typical amount to have free?

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8100: BlackBerry8100/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

On the same screen where you are the file free parameter, press the menu key again and select Database sizes.

And before anyone mentions it, I did follow the procedure on the FAQ to free up memory. There wasn't much memory in those areas, though (I didn't have any sample videos or extra languages)

Nothing stored to the device in terms of media, themes, messages with attachments, etc? what about languages, did you run the device setup wizard?

Have you cleared your browser cache? If you've followed my post on optimizing your BB Memory you can get lots more free memory than that.
