[maemo-users] N900 memory usage

Kevin, et al.

   My understanding is that the 32 Gig of diskspace that comes in the N900
is broken into a few different pieces.  These include pieces for the root
file system, temporary files, a section for installable applications and a
section for user data.

   The section for installable applications is 2 GB, so having 1.82 GB
available is pretty good.  I've got 1.4 GB available.  The section for user
data is 27 GB.  I have 25.2 GB available.  If you want to get much more
details, go to the xterminal window and type

   df -h

   That displays all the different places data is stored and how much space
is available in each one.

My two cents, YMMV,

Hi all;

I've bought a 16G SD card for my N900. When I go to Settings --> Memory I

Nokia N900:
21.13 GB Available

Memory Card:
11.10 GB Available

Memory for installable applications
1.82 GB available

Can anyone tell me what the  "Memory for installable applications" is used
and why do I have only 1.82 GB available? Is this a normal scenario?

Thanks in advance
