Can't say that it is an issue I give much thought to but notice currently 314.6MB of free phone memory upon 808. Device software is periodically completely re-furbished as having annoying "Sysyem error" message on booting to clear, which no-one to date has managed to eliminate.
If I've helped in any way, a click upon the white kudos star would always be appreciated.
The Nokia email app stores everything on c: and unlike earlier versions (e.g. on the E51) this cannot be changed.
So c: can just fill up, with big attachments.
Try deleting all emails from Inbox, Outbox, Sent, Drafts.
The other thing to try, which is more drastic, is to delete the email account and re-create it. This means having to re-enter the server login/passwords etc. On a hacked phone there are better ways (google on 1000484b for example) and this is a widespread issue especially on phones like the 700 which have only about 150MB c: space at the best of times.
Otherwise, 300MB is good going and there is no reason to worry about it. Just avoid installing any apps on c: if there is an option to install on e: which is much better.

So again my phone gave me some unwanted results. Had around around 360Mb and suddenly after something happened (i don't remember) the memory came to 300MB
I thought after backing up some memory would be released as usual but no, only 10MB and that too for few minutes. Again back to 300MB
When i checked backup archive the "Setting.arc" was about 64MB! That was much larger(don't know which settings had so much of size!?!)
So again i formatted my phone And now again left with 380MB of space. I'm just assuming that Nokia 808 PureView needs a push every 20 days! Thats really sad.
No, it doesn't need a push at all. What problems do you have caused by the fluctuating storage space apart from obsessing about it and clearly having too much time on your hands ? I haven't even bothered to check mine in the 9 months I've been using ad I have absolutely no usage or storage problems whatsoever. I have enough other problems to deal with in life without inventing others where they don't exist.
Try clearing the cache of your web browser as well, might space out your monthly resets.
Assuming you have locations for images and videos configured intelligently i.e. to use E: or the SD card, it's probably the browser cache.
The browser is hard coded to store this on C: and on WIFI or HSPA you can download tens of MB in minutes, just by browsing the web.
The problem is far worse on the 700 which normally has only about 130MB free and this can reduce to zero really quickly, just by emailing a load of pictures to somebody. Email is stored on C: too and one forgets about all the garbage accumulating in the the Sent folder...
