    I love BB File Scout!
    I just deleted everything in my samples, with the exception of the folder icons and contacts.
    Does anyone know they're used for? And will make things screwy if I delete them?

    I would not delete the folder icons. They are used for when you create a custom folder and click on the folder icon. You can then select from several different folder icons. The amount of space you would gain would be very minimal.

    What about the contacts?
    As I go through the folder, I noticed that there's a bunch of things in there that don't look any thing like a contact (i.e. BlueDress.png).

    You shouldn't need those files. I deleted them on my phone.

    No they are cartoon sample pics. I guess someone could assign the cartoon pics to their contacts if they wanted too.:lame:

    I have facebook, Flicker, Yahoo IM, Google Talk, Windows Live, BB Messenger in my instant messenger folder. I am trying to delete them since I never use them. I have File Scout but I cannot get them to appear so I can delete them. Same with DM, they don't show up? How do I delete them, and do they take up much space?

    Those are icons in the applications folder, you don't really have those on your phone unless you installed them. As far as I know, you can not remove that folder but you should be able to hide it.

    Pain all the IM apps you listed are not truly installed on your phone except BBM. For BBM you can remove that through add/remove on your DM. The rest just hide and try to forget them. You can delete the service books for them which will remove the icons, but next time you send your service books they will be back.

    so after you use bbfilescout to remove the files, is it necessary to do a reboot? Using quickpull or battery pull? Or does the memory instantly reflect what you gained?

    The memory should reflect but I recommend doing a battery pull after removing the files.

    Yes do a battery pull so that memory would be released.
