    Below are the unknown files on my radio (not SD card). Some could be the effects of a dirty uninstall. I dont really care about the smaller sized files, unless they are complete garbage. My biggest concern are those larger files - what are they and do i need them? Most apps have been placed onto my SD card now. I've been getting more resets lately and wish to clean up the unneeded files. They are probably from me testing downloaded apps off the Net. Probably not the best apps, either!

    I figure the more memory on the radio, more RAM so that it won't crash on me. Been running most apps off my SD card.

    So if possible, can you identify the file (software associated) and if i need it or not.

    Thanks!

    Search for 'DataViz tech tool' and move all those DTG files to the card.

    i dont even know what a DTG files are....

    *edit* documents to go. do you advise on moving this to the card? i have NEVER used these apps. at the same time, i dont want to screw around too much with manufacturer installed apps, since they prolly arent resetting my radio, ya know? but good suggestion tho!

    Moving them to the card with the tech tool will free up about 4mb of ram though.

    This is the thread that talks about shifting DTG files to the SD card. Seemed to work without problems for me. That should reduce your unknown file list quite a bit.

    Of the ones you list, I have only the following files internally. I have no idea what the other files are. I have a Sprint phone with a custom rom so what I have may not apply to your carrier or the apps you have installed. I wouldn't delete files arbitrarily unless you have a backup program and can easily restore. Otherwise, it's quite a process to fix an unstable configuration.

    I grabbed one randomly npad, went yahoo'ing and got this

    If ya do the same with the others yu should get similar results.

    Some are obvious ... or seemingly so

    Documents 422K ..... Your Docs2Go documents
    messages database 148K ....your messages database
    Sheettogo 649K ...... Docs2Go spreadsheet app)
    wordtogofonts 275K ....fonts for Dodcs2Go word processor

    If ya look in file z and look at the file attributes you can often match the file with the program it belongs to.

    do you think freeing up 4MB of ram on the radio would actually reduce the number of resets? of course most are probably program conflicts or something, but would more ram mean more stableness and perhaps allow the radio to resolved those conflicts rather than crash?

    thoughts?

    I have 15+MB free and TrackerDog is reporting 187 individual apps on my Treo.....the big jump (from 104) is from displaying ROM apps. I have had about 5 lockups / resets in 15 months this way. Most resets / lockups are caused by conflicts, insufficient memory or insufficient dbcache. Even with 15 MB free, you can get programs acting funny after loing of use....using TomTom for example for 5 -6 hours must reult in insuffficient cache or leaked memory problems causing csreen to go bonkers losing color and position every few seconds until you either flush the cache or reset.
