Im getting frustrated with my arc now as i keep getting the low on space warning it had the original 8gb card had a few apps on it then started getting the warning in the notification bar,whenever anything apps or facebook (kept telling me there was a new version) tried to update it would keep failing saying insufficient memory.
i cleared all the caches and browsing history and call logs texts etc but it still wouldnt allow any updates.this increased it from 4mb free to 11mb
I have app2sd installed and everything is on the memory card that can possibly go on it,there are a handful of things that are not possible to be moved and remain on the phone memory.I bought a new 16gb card as thought this may be better (that was before i realised it wouldnt make any differene lol as those items cannot be moved ) as some things seemed to be lagging and was giving the 8gb to my son.However it has made no difference whatsoever it still tells me im running out of memory.
Is it app data that stores on the internal memory?,as when i removed the memory card and put new one in all my apps were still there just greyed out,rather than trying to search the old memory card for them i just downloaded again from the market,the ones i wanted to keep.
i tried to search the memory card as i was planning on dumping it all into a folder on my pc and transferring it back to the new one and majority of the named folders when you hover on them say empty.
There are quite a few things on there that i havent seen on my phone such as an app called pudding face that i downloaded once which didnt work so i deleted yet it still has a folder on the memory card containing a screen shot,so am i right to think if you uninstall an app it doesnt actually fully uninstall??
all the names of my apps are in the android secure folder on my old memory card under an asec file extension,
do i need all the files that are on my old memory card to go back on my new one?? half of them i dont know what they are for or if they are any that are essential for the general working of the phone itself
at the moment i have 14.62gb free on the new sd card and 11.63 on internal but still each time i try and download a new app from the market it fails as it says insufficent memory,im guessing the ones im interested in are the ones that dont have the option to be stored to the sd card which is annoying the heck outta me i have 24 apps on internal that cannot be moved to sd card,so if i wish to download other apps to free up memory am i gonna have to delete these 24, just to allow me to do this? .What exactly uses up all the internal memory ? the largest thats on there is flash player at 17.37mb total of all 24 apps ive worked out to around approx 150mb,so what is using the rest of it????
Any help will be greatly appreciated
this was my first android and have had it a year so i really shouldnt be so ignorant hehehehe
