I have two of these, identically configured. Both have 30-40MB space left on C: despite having only a few apps installed and all possible efforts having been made to install them elsewhere, in the ~1GB bulk memory or (with Nokia Maps) on the 32GB micro-SD card.
The low memory now prevents even Nokia updates installing.
I have been browsing around with both Files (the native browser, rather crippled by Nokia as to what can be browsed) and ActiveFile (a 3rd party browser which can see everything that is permitted, and can see everything
on a jailbroken phone which this one is
, using the HELOOX hack) and done a lot of googling on how to clean up trash and temp files (low c: space is a huge issue on the later Nokias, evidently, with mobile forums covered in desperate pleas for help but with very few suggestions) but cannot get it any better. On Phone #1 the free space is showing as 33.5MB. #2 is about 40MB.
There are a pile of apps like CheckIn, Guides, Video Editor, etc, which either have no Delete option, or the delete option says Removing Cancelled (in the case of e.g. Orkut, Movie Teasers, etc.
I am suspecting that all is not as it should be and something left behind some temp files.
Is there a "garbage collection" utility (like ccleaner for Windows) which actually works on the 700 (Belle)?
The only apps I have installed myself are
and that is all I want.
The stuff I don't want, but cannot delete so I moved the icons to a folder called Crap are
Tops and offers
but none of them can be deleted, either from the front menu or from the Installed Apps list under Settings.
I see Nokia Store Installer under Settings / Already Installed as 5MB, which is a lot, but don't I need this app to install software on the phone? Same with Ovi Store, 3MB. SSOUI shows there as 2MB but cannot be removed.
I am a software developer, so not exactly dumb, hopefully
But it is very hard to find information on this stuff. It is a subject that is rather, errmmm, several years old
On the Nokia Community forum nobody is answering...
I suspect that there are some orphaned temp files which can be removed, and also that there is a way to remove a lot of the built-in apps, by simply deleting them.
Being jailbroken, I can browse the directory fully but Nokia have done what Apple do on the IOS: a lot of the directories have obscure numeric names, containing files whose names don't mean anything. So I don't just want to go deleting stuff. And I don't even know where apps (or their icons) are stored on the phone.
