Ouch.  You are correct, that information would have been good up front. 
Great guess, btw.

Yes, this is the internal memory on an n810.  I have the latest release
of the OS2008 as far as I am aware as well.

This is causing problems with Application Manager as well, because I
believe it stores the files on internal memory before saving.

If I formated the drive, how would I get the Map data back?
