Default possible to manage Storm memory ?

Please Login to Remove!

i think the storm comes with 128MB for the device/OS, then 1GB for storage, then u get the SD card too.

i want to streamline my storage options to maximize free space in the 128MB bank, so that picture/music/video loading and general OS navigation can go smoothly, do applications take advantage of the 1GB storage ?

so far, the slacker radio app i installed uses the SD card.....but i would have preferred that it use the 1GB region instead, because what happens to the app if i removed the SD card to use it elsewhere or replaced it with something larger ?

i see about 39MB file free when i look @ status, but i know it will go down when i add more apps.

No, that's like trying to use your hard drive storage on your computer as application RAM.

I have found that giving the Storm a stern talking-too will compel to manage its memory better.

Try it out.

i kind of figured it wouldn't be do-able, but i thought 'maybe' because both rams are on the motherboard. ever since SSD started trickling to consumers, and windows 7 is designed to take advantage of SSD's, perhaps mixing/merging ram and hdd storage will become transparent ? who knows...

maybe in the future there will be an OS update that could do this....
or maybe create a 'swap file', similar to windows, so that the OS/apps don't start slacking and getting sloppy...
