E5-00 | C:\ Memory full, but no files

E5-00 | C:\ Memory full, but no files

Lately Ive been getting notifications on my Nokia E5-00 saying the phone's memory is full.

When browsing through my phone memory, there are almost no files.

 

Although I have some apps installed, there not that much of being capable of consuming all that memory.

 

Is there any way to clean up my phone memory (besides uninstalling apps), to get more memory? Or seeing what's consuming all that space?

 

Can I e.g. delete some MfE emails (without deleting those emails from the servers)?

[ Edited ]

If you're using Nokia's File Manager, keep in mind that it shows only a fraction of the data on the internal C: drive.  To see (most of) the rest of the drive, you'll need a third party file browser.  I wouldn't recommend deleting MfE messages, but you could try shortening the sync period to flush older messages from the phone.

 

For a more surgical look, might I recommend NetQin's Mobile Guard?  See http://www.netqin.com/en/guard/symbian/ .  Problems like yours show up regularly on this forum, and answers are still sketchy.  But see this thread for a success story: /t5/Eseries-and-Communicators/E72-RM-530-Phone-memory-full-for-no-apparent-reason-any-solution/m-p/1... .  (HInt: if Psiloc World Traveler is installed on your phone, check for a massive log file C:\Data\licensersrv.log .)  Good luck, and post again if you need more advice!

Re: E5-00 | C:\ Memory full, but no files

Enter Menu- Office - File Manager - Phone Memory - Logs folder - Eng folder - 0ds folder - Mark all logs - Delete all logs through options. It will take 7 to 8 hours time for the first time. Nearly 23000 files will be there. It will take nearly one complete night. As a precaution please backup the data.

Re: E5-00 | C:\ Memory full, but no files

My Nokia E5-00 would not let me open the browser in order to clear cache. I tried uninstalling other applications to free just a little more memory in order to do so as well. However, it will not uninstall because of the lack of memory. 

 

What can I do? 

 

This is extremely frustrating! Please help.

Re: E5-00 | C:\ Memory full, but no files

I tried *#7780# and *#7370# but it ididnt work. I also Tried all the methods but nothing worked only ended up having free space of 2-3 MB inspite of i have 1.8 GB Memory card. still more than 99 % was still unused so i simply had to take back up of memory card and phone memory and took back up of PC suite then formatted the Memory card with this method Go to menu > Office > File Manager > Memory Card > Click on option > Choose the Memomry card options > Format > and its done i ended up having free space of 1.8 GB now simply take back up of Memory card. and its done.

Re: E5-00 | C:\ Memory full, but no files

PC Suite has a tool to clean up phone memory by removing unnecessary files in phone memory. It is worth a try.
