There are two ways, by clearing the Device Storage or you can try a hard reset, here are the steps:
To clear storage: 1. Tap Start > Settings > System Tab > Clear Storage 2. Enter "1234" now tap yes
To Hard reset:
1. Press and hold the TALK and END buttons, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the RESET button at the bottom of the device 2. Release the stylus and continue pressing the TALK and END buttons and you will see a message on the screen that says "This operation will delete all you personal data...." now press ACTION to proceed 3. Release the TALK and END buttons and then press ENTER on your device
There are 2 different sets of memory - the built-in "Storage memory" & the microSD "Storage Card". You can see how full they are: 1: Run "Task Manager". 2: Choose "Menu", choose "System Info".
I'm guessing that your Internet Explorer cache is large, filling up the "Storage memory". To clear it: 1: Run Internet Explorer. 2: Choose "Menu", choose "Tools", choose "Options", choose "Memory" 3: Select "Temporary Files" & "Clear". This will run a minute or so.
Make sure that all programs you have been using are closed when you press the cross (X). The factory settings are se to minimize the application instead of closing the program. This will keep all the applications running on the background instead of actually being closed. There are options under the menu setting options that give you the option of closing the applications by taping X or by pressing and holding X. I set tapping on mine.
The more programs running on the background the more memory usage.
