Where did all my Memory go?


I’ve had the question from a number of people:


“Jason – I bought a Windows Mobile 5 device – XXXXX – it says I have 64MB on the box however when I go into Control Panel – I only have 50MB left….”


Mike Calligaro over on the Windows Mobile team blog wrote this interesting article on where your memory on WM 5 is used ….

    My friend has got the same make phone and i think, because its a windows mobile, that the 14mb that have been taken up are from applications or sample pictures and videos. i think that there is a memory status section in the phone (im not sure where though), have a look at that and it might be able to tell you where that memory has gone.

    another cause is that the memory that they state is always a little bit bigger than what you’ve actually got, but 14mb is a bit too deep.

    hope this helped
