How to tell what's on device/size?
 
Is there any way to get a list of everything on my Blackberry, complete with size of file?

This would include applications and data and the operating system and everything.

The reason I want to do this is I'd like to account for where all the memory usage has gone.

I know about options/advanced/applications/modules, but that doesn't include size and doesn't appear to have data/databases.

Ideally, I'd be able to copy or export the list.

Is there something native that does this? Or a third party app? I tried Rove File Manager, but this only shows the "user" directories.

Thanks.

Go to options, status, menu, database sizes...

Not quite. That shows only databases for certain apps (the basic ones). It doesn't show the size of the apps, themselves, or the OS, or third party databases, or any number of other "files."

However, if this list did include every "file" on the device, it would be exactly what I want since it shows a total and it lets me copy.

Well all OS/App size information is shown in DM and in the shared folder on your PC.

I'm feeling dense tonight. Where in DM can I see this?

I looked in application loader, but that only shows applications. And only some of them.

Looking at a backup on my PC (is that what you meant?) comes close, but isn't exactly what I want unless it's absolutely, positively, everything that's on the device. I want to make sure that there isn't some trash lying around on the device that's sucking up memory.

Thanks for you help and understanding.
