Boy, I'd sure like to move some apps to the Ext SD Card. Anything out there?
My understanding is that on the Droid 3, you cannot move apps to the ext-SD card, but you can move them to the int-SD (Media area).
That being said, I, and several others, have reported that there seems to be a problems with moving apps to the Media Area of the int-SD card. This problem shows up in several ways, you wake your phone up or power/down power up ant the apps are messed up. When you go to Menu/Settings/Applications/Manage Applications/ the app name was been replaced by a cryptic name such as com.appname...... If you try to run the app, the message 'App not found' pops up.
This problem was been around for several months. I first encountered it on my OG Droid and I encountered it on my Droid 3. I no longer move apps from 'phone storage' to 'media area.'
Based on the app count from "1-Tap Cleaner", I have 215 apps installed and approximately 1.25 GB space.
The reason folks want to move apps from 'phone area' to 'media area' frees up space in the 'phone area'. You might add more apps and text messages to this area.
How do you free up the Media area, I've got 1.3G free in the app partition but only 156M in the media area?
I've looked in managed apps menus and nothing is set to media area so how come nearly all the 4G is used up?
I only a have a few audio books and only a few podcasts.
Use the included-Droid 3app "Files', the select 'Internal Phone Storage'.
Move pics and videos from this area to you SD Card.
Browse and delete any files that you do not need.
By moving pics and videos and deleting unneeded files, you should be able to reclaim space.
I deleted a bunch of ebooks and that didn't do anything until swapped batteries this morning and now I got 500M free.
Still seems like a lot of memory is used up and I'm not sure what it is. I'll re-check the audio books bet they're quite large.
