    Application Storage space

    Please direct me to the right forum, if this is already posted.

    I have a BB9700, OS6 534, BIS.
    My storage space is around 23MB, and after couple of days it drops to 5MB. I have less then 50MB of applications.
    I'm checking this information from AppWorld; so it's telling me that i have 23 out 250MB free.

    can someone explain if this is nornmal.

    If you haven't done so, try a battery pull. With the device on, remove the battery and let it sit a couple of minutes. Re-install the battery, power it up, and check memory storage space for any improvement.
    This type of reset really does help with a lot of strange issues. Think of it as rebooting your computer cuz that's exactly what you're doing, resetting your handheld computer.

    You could have a theme or app installed on your device that is creating the memory leak as well. If you reboot your device and the memory quickly falls again, then that is the problem.

    Thanks guys. I've done the battery reseat many times, after the reset, it is back to around 23MB and then within couple of days it falls back to ~5MB. It's probably an app (or the OS?) leaking this memory, but is there a way to find out wich one?

    Think back a couple days-which app did you uninstall before this happened? If you can remember, try uninstalling that app. That should fix the problem. If you can't remember, then delete through your apps one by one, followed by a reboot, as in:

    Delete, then reboot your device, then check if the leak is gone.

    Keep following this pattern till the leak is gone.

    Hope this helps!

    To rectify this problem, better delete unnecessary themes which may be the reason for the memory leakage..

    Thanks all, i'll try to do some clean up here. However, what's the recommended storage space required for the device and apps to work smoothly?

    If you have 250 MB total, then around 75 would be used for the system software...
    Which means that you should have around 70MB for a healthy phone. Besides, its all on your judgment. If you feel that you need the apps really badly, try to leave around 50MB free space.

    Hello Marceln. I have 57.5MB of free memory space and the phone works perfect.
    The .534 is a stable version for the 9700 so like mentioned earlier check the latest apps or theme's you have installed. One or more might be the cause for the memory leak.
    I would personally also suggest you wipe the device, reinstall the OS and then try installing your apps one by one and check how your memory responds.

    Yeah, I agree. It also might be that your os is not stable, so the smart choice would be to get the stable build.

    Under Application Storage, the OS system software is taking 132MB of space. Is that normal? Note that's i've already wiped the device and reinstalled the OS, and resotred the apps.

    Try BB Boss. You can use it to shrink the OS and afterward install it.
    Btw system files can't be "shrunken down". That is why they are called system files. They are needed in order for the system (OS) to function correctly.
