Nokia 5230 Phone memory Very Low...Help... :(

I installed a variety of applications from Ovi store including games, utilities and applications.

I installed all the applications (Opera, similar browsers, anti-virus, call recording applications etc.) in the memory card only. But I noticed that the applications were slowly consuming the phone memory and the free space went down to hardly 4.5 MB!

My issue here is, even after after uninstalling and removing lots of applications and formatting the memory card, the phone memory remains the same 8.3MB.

I understand that certain applications create folders and store log files in the phone memory (Guess it's C: Drive).

Now, can you help me clean-up all the unwanted files, logs stored in the phone memory? How to differentiate between essential and unwanted files?

I'd greatly appreciate your advice!

Probably would have suggested backing up essential phone data via OVI Suite then return 5230 to factory settings by keying in *#7370# followed by 12345 (default Nokia lock code unless altered by yourself).
