| | Gradual loss of file free memory
Please Login to Remove!
I'm using an 8900 that's a year or so old. The OS is 188.8.131.521. I'm noticing a gradual loss of File Free memory, according to Options>Status, after a reset or battery pull. That is, a few months ago, I'd have about 123 MB free after a reset/pull. Now it's about 93 MB. It's not because of a bunch of emails or texts sitting in memory, because I've cleaned them out. And it's not because of new apps installed, because I haven't installed any. In fact, I uninstalled one that I wasn't using. The device seems to run fine, so maybe the question is academic, but I'd still like to know why I have 30 MB less free memory after a reset than I used to.
The OS, incidentally, has been "optimized" as per the John Clark instructions on the subject, which I've followed each time I've upgraded the OS. I'm seeing this loss of memory even without any OS change.
