    Im getting an error titled "Low Memory Error", in the error box it says "Please delete some data and try Hotsync again" with an "OK" box.

    My memory reads:650K of 22.4

    Is that low enough that I have to delete some programs?

    Is this error common?

    You've got less than 1mb of RAM left; I try to keep mine between 3 and 4mb, and I know several people who don't think their 650's are stable with available RAM below 6mb.

    Delete some apps/data or move them to the card.

    You also need to monitor the db cache - it can be done manually with a couple of utilities (MemoryInfo is the one I used) or Preference Doctor's latest beta. These applications really help with stability issues. Ben

    I know that this is an ancient post, but how do I move apps to a card? I have a 1GB SD card with lots of room, and don't see how to transer apps or data there from main memory. (The web app won't run, claiming it needs more memory.)

    Your best bet is a program like zLauncher or PowerRun which moves apps and their related databases to the card. If you copy an app to the card with the stock launcher it only copies the app and not the related databases (which are often larger tha the app itself)

    Better to dig up an older post than to make a new one so well done!

    I am one of those that Bill is speaking of. I make every effort to keep the available free memory at around 6mb, though I do have Preference Doctor set at 4mb on the 650. The 1Mb area is just begging for problems. Ben

    Hello everyone! I seem to be in a pickle here. I ran my treo memory to less than 1mb and now it keeps resetting. I have data on my treo i need to retrieve. Is there anyway I can get my data by some manual transfer maybe? Thanks for all your help.

    I've tried searching in both software and hardware forums for help with a low memory error on my T650. I've found some good advice which I have tried, but I keep coming back to the same low memory problem. It's becoming more frequent now...to the point that it is making Hotsync difficult and unreliable.

    Here's what I've tried so far:

    Intially I couldn't hotsync, so I had no way to install programs like zlauncher, which I found recommended here. To get past that, I used the delete function on the main application function and deleted anything I could. That allowed the sync.

    I bought a 1 meg SD card and installed it.

    I installed zlauncher and moved just about anything I could to the card.

    The result was ok, but hardly awesome. I still had only about 1 meg of free space on the phone, but at least I could sync. Things seemed ok for awhile, but now the problem is back. I show about 560k on the phone. I can't run zlauncher (not enough memory) and I can't sync. So back to deleteing from the main application window on the phone again to allow a sync. I found a topic on moving Documents to go over to the card, so I managed - after a lot of time and effort - to get the recommended program (Dataviz?) installed. I ran it and it seemed to work. But once again, I had only about 1.2 meg free on the phone. That's an improvement, but compared to the 6 to 11 or even more reported by other users, it's pretty whimpy.

    Now I'm stuck again. After a hotsync, I'm back to 560k memory, not enough to run zlauncher or to hotsync. Also, when I try to do a delete from the main application screen, there's almost nothing listed there to delete (or move). Something is definately gumming up the works, but I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I've seem references to eliminating old mail and task archives, cleaning out web caches, etc., but either I can't find those to delete, or they are deleted. I know that I have a lot of contacts in my outlook folder, but I need them, so I don't want to delete or change that.

    I would sure appreciate help. I suspect that something is loading everytime from my backup folder. I'd get rid of it if I could find it. Thanks for any advice you guys may have.

    I highly recommend Linkstart (Lite version is Free!!) for those who want to simply move applications to the card. No fancy frills or UI. Just works.

    Some kind of way, you need to get something like Filez on the device, maybe OTA. But you've got to have room to install & run it. If you can do that, you would be able to see all files on there, sorted by size or however you want. Then, using an abundance of caution, delete files as you saw fit to delete.
