I have recently upgraded to Official Belle. Hacked it and i have installed only few required apps & games.

Phone Memory Details:
214 MB used
40 MB Free
97 MB Sis applications
95 MB Other Files

What are these other files? how do I locate and delete them?

Thanks Mate!

But I feel its useless to flash just to free up memory, coz once I install apps I'll again face same problem.
Better to go in root & find out unnessesary files which could be deleted.

Just looked at my C drive: I had 64mb free. After clearing Search files (c:- a bunch of files named after dates 20120211 etc) free space shot up to 185mb.

Deleted "reserved" file from C:private\102072c4.... 20 mb freed up...!

Good tip,  another 20 MB saved, now got to 135 MB free on C. Smiley

C:\Private\102072c4\Reserved is a FOTA file, dunno if it recreates itself, so I just moved it to E (or F would do). Then I can move back if get OTA update probs.

Search '20 MB big "reserved file" in Private\102072c4' in forum here..
It says, ""delete it then dial up *#0000# and you'll have it back if you miss it that much...so the answer to your question is yes, you can delete it""

The file holds firmware info. it gets back in place once u dial *#0000#... no worry u can delete it!

Tell me one thing, how on earth u can have 135 MB free on C? Have you not installed any apps?
I'm struggling to make it even 70 MB... with only few apps installed...!

ANy suggestion to free up would be +1....
