Default Insufficient Space

Please Login to Remove!

I saw that there was a new Viigo update. Since Viigo is one of my favorite apps of course I wanted to get the update.

I downloaded the new version and when it went to install it said 'Insufficient Space'.

Ok, say I un-installed Audible, Soduko, and even the old version of Viigo. It still say insufficient space. What's the deal?

Your memory is low and needs to be increased. Delete any applications you really don't need. And take a look at this post which goes over maximizing device memory: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ee-memory.html

Yeah, thats like INSANELY low! I have approx 36MB free at startup and you have 9MB. Most people say the lowest you ever want to be is around 12-15MB free memory. Follow Howards' advice and get rid of whatever is clogging that memory, ASAP! Then you should be just fine at that point...

I got rid of alot of the BB built in things that I don't use like BB Maps, ICQ, Messenger, etc. That didn't have alot of impact on my free space. But I got rid of Slacker Radio and that seemed to free up about 10MB.

It was enough that I was able to install the new versio of Viigo, but I'm still aounr 12MB of free space. I have eWallet, Pocket Informant, Viigo, and Google Maps as my only real 3rd party apps on the device.

Google Maps may be a space hog, I'm not sure where its maps are stored.

Its certainly good that you freed up enough space to get that app installed. However, I'm still concerned that you still only have 12MB free at startup. When you go into DM and the go into application loader, check out the list of installed apps/themes the BB reports. You MUST still have quite a few "things" installed on the phone sucking down your memory. I have Facebook, miniOpera, Bolt, Viigo, Beyond411, Docs2Go, Agendus, Profiler, Ascendo Data Vault, Mobireader, a ton of WAP launchers and various other tools/gadgets installed and I still have over 30MB free at startup.. Check it out. We'll figure it out eventually!

Its all over the place. I just looked at it right now and it says 3MB free. Seems to work fine though.

Attached is my app list in DM:

Are you sure we are looking at the same thing. I don't know why I would have 3MB and you would have 30MB. I'm looking at the File Free Space in my status, is that the same as application space?

Is there any way to see the files that are in there, like in Explorer or something? I recently switch to this BB from a Windows Mobile device. I generally like the BB, but there are a few things that still aggravate the #$@$#W@ out of me.

Do you have a lot of pictures, ringtones, music or themes? Any media like pictures you take should go on the media card.

^^ agreed. It sounds like apps are not your only issue. If you're keeping media on the internal memory it can chip away at your available memory very quickly.

While you're checking free memory in options - status, click menu key and click database sizes. What's that say in there for total and is there any particular database over 100k?

Definitely check what you've saved into BB Memory and try to get everything you can onto the microSD card. Spare themes, music, etc...Cant put 3rd party apps on the SD Card tho.

And currently I have 26532098 Bytes free - havent rebooted in about 20hrs - and Ive been using my BB all day browsing, moving files, etc...Even installed a couple more little things to try.

Doesn't the 8330 have more internal memory than the 8320?

I give all my audio/video files and reingtones on my media card. So far as I know I don't have any of my data on my device.

Total Database Size is 806.8k. Calendar is 101k, Messages 323k, Browser data cache 76k, Content Store 70k, the rest miniscule.

I could do a complete hard reset and start over. But I'd like to avoid that since I would have to go through the IT department to reset the corporate email. My IT department is in Germany, and they aren't easy to deal with.

If your bb is connected to your notebook while on vpn, you shouldn't need your IT dept to complete the enterprise activation. If nothing else works, this might be your best bet.

I did a search on this forum for '8320 Memory Leak'. This is a fairly common problem it would seem.

Memory leak still wouldn't explain why your free memory is so low right after a battery pull. Must be something else happening here...
