After installing Nokia Belle and using it couple of months dropped my N8 C to little bit over 40mb. Couple of weeks ago I did back up for contacts only and after I did a hard reset to my N8. Now the C seems to be stabilized to around 90-100 mb and it is working superbly. So all I can advice is to do back up for contacts and after that *#7370# reset to phone. Atleast it worked for me. Perhaps there was something left from Anna that messed up the C drive.
i installed Sofware update of Nokia Public Transit which eats up about 15- 20 mb on C: ,i don't see any ways of uninstalling it
Public Transport should be removable from Installed Apps, else backup your phone and do a fresh installation of Belle.
Try this. In Belle go to Menu then to Files. Then push and hold the C: Phone Memory and then click on Details
Mine says 7.1 Megabyte Left. When it shows me Memory Details, it shows that 110 MEGABYTES are being used by Messages!!! Here in lies the problem!!! However, all of my Emails, and MMS messages are completely clear!!! How can I have 110 MB of Messages when I have 3 emails in my Inbox and 0 MMS and text messages.
110MB of Messages!! Somewhere.
I am guessing that the phone holds onto Emails and stores them somewhere even when you delete them from the phone.
Is anybody else seeing the same thing I am??? How do we find this temp folder of cache to delete it!!
NOKIA is really letting me down. Been a loyal customer since the Nokia 2110 is this is getting RIDICULOUS!!!!!
Don't you have any Sent emails? If it says messages, then it could be that you sent emails with huge attachments and only cleared the Inbox. Clear sent items as well.
My N8 Belle has only 29Mb free on C: initially when turned on (only Whatsapp, Kik Messenger, Battery Monitor, Messaging, Data Counter Widget, Mail and Calendar are visible running in background).
After running, free memory on C: drops below 25Mb, but all apps seems to run perfectly. Only downside is, it turned off other running apps when launching Nokia Map or HD games. If it runs out of memory, then N8 would reboot by itself (no pin or security code required on reboot).
I installed all my apps on E:, except Whatsapp and Nokia apps. I already deleted unecessary apps installed on C: (like Sleeping Screen, Shazam, Microsoft , etc). I have no idea what is hogging C: memory, but since all apps works, I just gave up on trying to find where the C: memory evaporates to.
I'm having the same problem. After moving the preimstalled media images to the other memeory, it helped but everynow and then mail saying no memory - any ideas?
I think it might be the private folder. I used Netqin and found this folder wich I can't delete "C>Private>2003486a>drop>extreme north" and it sizes 21 mb, in my C: memory and I can't delete it manually... is there a way to delete files inside private folder and release some memory?
Same issue after using my Belle N8 for a few weeks while I sent my E7 for repair. I could actually see the free space going down before my eyes.
I don't think I did a reset after the Belle upgrade so maybe that would fix it.
The wasted space must be in one of the private folders so it's impossible to tell which app is responsible unless you get capability to access AllFiles. None of the public folders appear to contain the wasted disk space.
If this still happens on a clean Belle phone you guys really ought to fix it. It does look like a big major show stopper. I can't believe you let that one slip through QA.
Got some space by removing some unnecessary apps & themes.... Also deleted the mail-box (Gmail). As well as cleared some SMSes & fixed duplicate contact enteries....
Cleared cache with Mobile guard....
But not much....
It doesn't matter whether you have installed apps on E drive (Mass mem) or C drive (Phone Mem)....I saw that uninstalling an app frees up space in both the drives... Move the default wallpapers from c to e. Removing mailbox also gains much remarkable space.
I'm sick and tried of this, a smart phone should be smart enough to manage it's own memory. It's one thing after another with this software.
I can honestly say in the 18 months I've had the N8 I'd bet everything worked as it should for no more than 6 months.
6 months to go on the contract and I'm off. (and that's from a die hard Nokia fan boy)
Their is a folder called
crivate which eats up 86.57mb space
check them for loss of space...
hope they help......

This bug - or whatever it is - should be known by Nokia guys. But no fix seems to be rolled out and no guiding answers are given by the support team. I'm on Nokia since 1998. In the last few years, I got only unhelpful answers by Nokia support. Sometimes I wondered whether they have seen their own phones. I can't stand this any more. My N8 is my last Nokia phone.
My c: is down to 6,1 MB ones again and continues dropping. All visible folders on c: are empty except for Nokias standards. Caches and apps are set to use e: or for foto and video f:. I CAN'T SEE ANY DELETABLE FILES TO FREE MY MEMORY! So I have to go the hard way again. This is not smart at all.
I see the memory drop since I installed Anna. I bet that Belle fixes it. I was sure that any update of the OS brings the relieve. NOTHING!

Nokia, that's why you are fading out of existence. Fix this in your company or even Microsoft can't help you out of this!
The best thing to do for yourself, and your device, though a bit if not very inconveniencing, is to do a backup of your most important items and re install Belle. Remember NOT to install Apps and all the stuff you don't use. I'm on 55MB, and will NOT install MS Apps, as Quick Office does a much better job.
