    does anyone find their phone has low free space?

    I have maybe 12 songs on here, and some apps but somehow I've used 8.37GB and 4.94GB remaining.

    I really don't know where it has all gone.

    :(

    Just out of comparison 23 games installed, 82 apps and no music.

    Total Storage 12.86 GB
    Available Storage 8.93.GB

    No Nokia specific maps downloaded maybe ?

    (As palandri suggested) :)

    Hmmm I suppose it could be maps. I only have england installed. Also have quite a lot of games which take up space. I'll clear some out and see how much difference that makes

    I don't ever use Nokia drive so I will delete the map and see how much I get but I don't have anywhere near as much stuff as you

    edit: map of england is only 164mb....

    we could do with something that breaks down the storage and tells you how big everything is. I used to have hideous memory eating problems on my old nokia's...maybe it's come over to WP7 too

    Probably the games. My wife always runs out of space because my toddler downloads the trial of every game that looks interesting.

    How do you check how much memory Nokia Map is taking up?

    If there is something that breaks down how much storage each app/game is using, then that'd be awesome

    Oh thanks!

    Would you know how much memory the Offline Dictionary download is for dictionary.com? I'm trying to figure out where my memory has all gone..and maps aren't one of the reasons..

    WP7 does not allow one to set an end date for recurring appointments, holidays, birthdates, etc. Thus, we have recurrencies showing to forever -or thereabouts. Does anyone know how that affects storage memory?

    I don't have that much reserved space...i'm really starting to think that it's dictionary.com's offline dictionary that's using up all the space...i'm gonna uninstall it and see

    ok..news to me but maybe not to some of you...i downloaded Apptastic and as with other app finding apps out there, it lists the info of each app and size etc...but Apptastic also lists the "installed size" which seems to be significantly different than the download size that we see on the Marketplace.

    I always thought the download size is how much memory it takes but this kinda explains why i'm seeing my memory being used so fast..for example Bug Village's download size is 41mb but the installed size is 108mb! that's more than double!

    if only there's an easy way to see how much memory each app is reallyyy taking..then that'd make my life so much easier in getting rid of games that i don't play much..

    Found a function in Apptastic where you find the apps you've downloaded...and you can put them under "my apps" and that will list out all the size of the installed apps..the only pain is that you gotta find the apps one by one...not sure if there's an easier way to add them..
