    I have come across a strange problem with my Ericsson P900. The internal
    storage is supposed to be 16MB. I noticed a few days ago that is was nearly
    full (16MB total, 100% being used, 0.6 MB free).

    However I have no idea where this space has gone ! Looking at file manager,
    I've hardly any files on the internal storage (about 3 megs worth of pics).
    Going through storage manager, the total size of the combined applications
    on the phone is about 5MB (this includes all messages, contacts and
    installed software).

    So where has the other 8MB gone ? Anyone had any similar problems ?

    fist thing i thought of is sent MMS, you said you had checked messages so
    its probably not that, could it be that the amount of free memory is just
    incorrect, ir can you only save 0.6MB more data, thats worth a try.

    Thanks Matt. Yes, 'messages' includes all SMS, MMS, email and beamed files.
    I think the amount of free memory is correct (at least it think it is) as i
    cannot transfer any files greater than 0.6MB (the amount of free internal
    space) to internal storage.

    Assuming Windows is your environment.

    Try the following :-

    Do a Backup. This, as a side effect, it reboots the phone (it fixed quite
    a few problems I had on my phone initially)

    Check the memory. If it's still missing, do the following :-

    Open the Backup/Restore application
    Find out where it is storing the backup archive (it shows on the right
    somewhere)

    Open that file using winzip (ignore the fact it has not got a .zip suffix
    so change the suffix to 'all files' rather than '*.zip' in the open
    dialog)
    Extract it all out to a temp folder. There is a Text file (I forget
    the name, something like file list) which gives you a relationship between
    the file numbers and the file names as stored on the phone. It also gives
    you sizes. Have a dig through this list to find out where the space has
    gone :-)

    Worst case scenario is to delete the culprit files out of the ZIP archive
    then do a restore - I would not do this unless you have an unmodified zip
    lying around that you can re-restore from in case you delete a wrong file!

    Thanks Lyall. That sounds like its worth giving a go. I didnt think that
    doing a backup would solve the memory problem, but I'll give it a try.
