Issues with N9 accounts (CalDav, Dropbox)

Issues with N9 accounts (CalDav, Dropbox)

Hi,

 

I've got a weird problem with my N9 accounts app. When I try to create a CalDav-account for Google calendar, everything goes fine to the point that I have to choose the syncing schedule and the color of the calendar. When I then save the account, the phone prompts "Data storage full. Free up some space first". Any idea what this storage space refers to? I'm using a 64Gb N9, with some 30 Gb free space left, and there's over a Gb free in the section that is reserved for apps (see attachment). 

 

Well, I wanted to see if this had something to do with a maximum amount of accounts or something, so I removed my Dropbox-account temporarily. However, I cannot re-open the account, as I get a "account won't save" -message each time I try to save the account. I've tried rebooting the device and resetting to factory settings, but the problem persists. Is there any other remedy, than doing a hard reset (I'm a bit reluctant to do that, given that there's a lot of reinstalling and -syncing to be done after it)?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have the same problem. Not A Google calender but a regular CalDav account. Divice says not enough space but there still is plenty of space.

Re: Issues with N9 accounts (CalDav, Dropbox)

I had the same problem syncing with a CalDav account (iCloud) with multiple calendars. I downloaded an App (Drop Cache) that clears the Cache and it usually recovers about 250MB of space. Tedious - given that the phone actually has plenty of space - but effective. I had the same problem on the old N8 when using (Apple) iSync on an iMac. On a completely empty phone it told me there wasn't enough space to load 513 contacts. Maybe it's an Apple-Nokia thing.

Re: Issues with N9 accounts (CalDav, Dropbox)

I have a Black N9 64GB unlocked running PR1.2

 

I don't sync my contacts (anymore) and I sync my calendars to an iCloud account.

 

I have just loaded my new roster on to the phone and I get the message "Data storage full. Free up some space first.".

 

I use Drop Cache too and after I run it, it says that I have 279MB free of 985MB Free Memory State. I also have 252MB free of 255MB Swap.

 

There is 2.7GB free in Installed Apps, 1.6GB free in Application Data and 14.2GB free in User Data.

 

I can't see what the problem is - can anybody help me out.

 

I rely on having this info' with me (my roster) - the phone is 50% useless without it (it's still a phone I guess!)?

 

Thanks

Re: Issues with N9 accounts (CalDav, Dropbox)

A work roster - I'm a shift worker: 

 

a calendar of start and finsih times, by day of week, with assigned duties.

 

It's no more complicated or data intensive than a calendar entry saying you're meeting a mate at the pub on Friday at 7pm ..... just not as much fun.

I Am now having this problem after adding a new MFE account.

I've used very little of the space available on my phone.

Thanks in advance.

SIGH.........

 

Another broken software protocol on the N9...

 

Don't expect help or a fix from this company. As far as they're concerned you don't exist and they would very much love it if you and all other N9 owners would just go away forever so that they can help their Lumia customers...you know, the ones that have given them 2.9% market share!!! :smileyvery-happy:

 

You'll just have to try to work around this issue or get another phone. For me, it's either Ubuntu phone or Jolla's Sailfish...but one thing is for sure, NEVER again a Nokia product as long as I live and I tell family and friends to stay far away from Nokia products.
