    I have an original Motorola Droid, which I will soon be upgrading, but in the meantime, I still need to use. I am down to about 19.93 MB of space and keep getting a "Low on space" message. In looking thru my apps, I am seeing that "Facebook" is taking up the most space at a total of 55.27 MB, of which 50.47 is showing as data. Being I can't move the app to my SD card, I assume that is all on the phones internal memory and is my space hog.

    What will happen if I "Clear Data" ? I see it will permanently delte all files, settings, accounts, databases and so on... Before I do this I want to be sure I will still be able to use FB on my Droid...

    Thanks for your input.... Joie
    God, can't wait till I upgrade

    figured it out...

    I decided to clear the data, which freed up memory, but when I logged back in and synched with my existing contacts, the data jumped right back up. So, decided to stop synching with my contacts, and I now have lots of space available on my Droid.

    I figured, I only have about a month left with this dinosaur, so I can do without this info for that amount of time...

    So, that is the answer.... to this problem, at least...

    Thank You!

    I've been nervous about clearing the data as well but decided to finally do it after seeing your post (and getting the repeated warnings of low storage!). Works like a charm! I think mine was using like 20MB or so of space and was growing each day.
