N73 phone memory problem

Do all the msgs and videos and data which automatically get stored in the lifeblog application in Nokia N73,affect the phone memory or the memory card? I am facing a problem where my phone memory is actually full without apparently having any data. So am not able to receive or send new msgs, inspite of my messages folder being almost empty.Can someone help please?

    Since I'm having a similar problem, I'd like to ask: if we perform the hard format you describe, what will be deleted? Only the data we inserted (phone book, calendar, etc.) or also the operating system, installed applications etc.?

    I have the same issue of memory full in my n73 phone even there is no application installed and no music/video on it except for the contacts and message which is about 2MB in size. I tried restoring to factory default with that instruction but to no avail. I noticed that my phone book still in there. Is there any way i can reset it by completely erasing all its content?

  • Ian Calmares Jul 21, 2008

    my phone memory is always full. I sometimes can't send and receive msgs. I already formatted my memory card and erased all data in my phone memory (contacts,notes,msgs,etc)..but still its memory is full...when i can't receive msgs, i erase the NEF folder in the phone memory, but when it gets out of memory space again, i restart my fon to receive msgs...but the problem doesnt vanish at all. If i check the memory details of my phone memory, 46MB is used and about 200KB is free. Please help me in this problem, i've been suffering from this almost half a year already. tnx.

Hello friends....
u dun need to panic, here's a very simple solution!

The phone memory drops basically coz of LIFEBLOG DATABASE file. You need to have some Explorer Software to access this file. Either install X-plorer v1.22 or Y-explorer etc etc.
Then follow these steps:

1. Go to C:\Data\Lifeblog\Database
2. You will find a file lifeblog.db, it is because of this file whose size varies. Usually it stays around 1 mb but sometimes it goes upto 20mb + driving out whole of the Phone Memory.
3. Try deleting this file.
4. In case it gives a message that file cannot be deleted coz it is in use by some application, then go back to folder.
5. Rename the "DATABASE" folder to any other name. Now you will be able to delete "lifeblog.db" without any error msg. After deleting that, rename the folder back to DATABASE.

Here you go....ur problem is solved!

I wud like to have ur feedbacks!

Thanks

    While installing x-plorer it is showing expired certificate.

  • hppahuja Apr 07, 2011

    in data folder lifeblog is not showing

  • harchetan Apr 11, 2011

    Set the date of your phone to past date and restart. for eg, today is 11/04/2011
    1. try first with 11/04/2006 & restart.
    2. if still problem is thr, try with 11/04/2007, 11/04/2008, 11/04/2009, 11/04/2010 (restart everytime and try installing)
    3. at one of the date, it will surely get successfully installed...most likely at 2008 or 2009 year.

    try it, if still some problem...lemme know

  • harchetan Apr 11, 2011

    Plz check in Device Memory (C Drive only) through 3rd party software only like x-plorer. you cannot view this folder through Nokia's File Manager.

Formatting is best for ur mob.
bcoz when you delete something that is not erased thoroughly.
it can be experienced by using tuneup utilities in computers.
so formatting is necessary, so use these steps
*#7370# for reset settings
*#7780# for soft formatting
if you want complete format turn off phone,charge fully. then press green button, * button, no. 3 button, lastly I/O(power)button simultaneously.
your phone will be formatted in 3 mins approx.

Well, that problem is about huge file size of "lifeblog db" file in phones internal memory.
suddenly internal memory falls to 144k due to the large lifeblog.db file in
c:\data\lifeblog\database\ .which u cant delete for now... Just follow this instructions carefully,,,
1) download and install the following applications:
a) Jbaktaskman v.99
b) X-plore v1.22
2. open jbtaskman and go to Tools > Processes and look for "LifeblogDBSERVER.exe" file and kill the process
3. now u can go to c:\data\lifeblog\database\ and delete lifeblog.db file
to free memory.
4. now restart phone and repeat step 2
5. again go to c:\data\lifeblog\database\ and change the attributes of lifeblog.db file to 'hidden' and 'read only' using xplore.
6. again restart phone and search for LifeblogDBSERVER.exe using jbtaskman. hopefully it wont be there to cause any further troubles. ! !
Good Luck ! ___nessalpha

I tried all the instructions in this forum but to no avail. What I did was, i went on to the nearest service center of Nokia and they advised me to upgarde the firmware. My phone is now working again after the upgrade.
Note: i don't remember the firmware but you may just upgrade it to latest firmware version available.

Check Lifeblog. Chances are it has built a huge database picking on each and every pictures and video you took. Erase de Lifeblog data (if you do not want it) and configure Lifeblog *not* to automatically build the blog based on your photos/videos.

Repeated display 'memory full delete some data' when the phone memory is empty,most probably a virus, how to deal with it?


I don't personally own a Nokia phone, but from what I hear, all of their phones have software on them called Lifeblog, it stores all of your photos taken, and all of the calls you have made on your phone and arranges them in a time line, this ends up taking up a lot of space.

Possible Solutions:
First:
Backup anything you want to keep with Nokia PC Suite
Then:
Reset your phone to factory default by either typing *#7370#
OR
Holding down 3 * green whilst switching it on.

Be wary when restoring any backup you have, being this will restore anything that your Lifeblog contains, reverting the problem.

And a final solution
Download "Y" browser here
Install it on your phone via your Nokia PC Suite.
Launch the YBrowser application (probably from new folder called DrJukka.com):
Locate the C: drive and open it:
Locate the Data folder:
Locate the Lifeblog folder:
Select Options, File and then Delete
Once the folder is deleted launch Lifeblog and select Update Timeline.


Hope one if not all of these helped =)

How to delete some data in my nokia n73?


Try to delete songs or setups that you might have kept in the phone memory (c:) drive of your phone !
and make sure no application is running in background before opening LifeBlog.

For better viewing of the files kept in the phone memory use X-PLORER software !

It rockx.

Memory low delete some date


Memory low : delete some data This is the error message that appears in my N73 mobile once in few days. There will be no space for new messages and no messages can be sent at this time. But the good news this error text will not be present in the mobile for more than a day and the next day every thing is all right. Its just like a viral fever i think, comes and goes with no treatment required for recovery. Here are some tips which can help you to come out of "Memory low delete some data" virus in your mobile phone especially nokia
Do's
-i think this is the best one
the reason for this is lifeblog, u can find that the file lifeblog.db will be the file that has increased its file size and causes this error, just go to lifeblog-settings-item types-and uncheck all the files here, after some time the memory will be normal
-delete some files in your phone memory so that you keep receiving the new messages(your phone memory will be very less at that time)
-try to close all the applications by pressing menu button for some time
-switch off the mobile and take the battery out and then insert it back and switch on
-after you regain the memory in your phone put some files in it like a song or other files so that you can delete in the emergency times
-be patient this situation comes because of some error in memory console of your mobile and it will be solved without our interference
Dont's
-Dont get panic and step into Nokia Care for firmware update this will never help the cause
-Dont try to get any new anti virus as this will never solve

Memory full?


try this. this helps me..
turn off your n73 phone. turn it on. while your mobile is booting, hold
3 + * and the green call key at your left soft key until it ask your location.. select your location and BAM! your phone is new again and 44mb is back.
note: before doing this back up your files to your memory card and remove it removed it from your phone. =) This is SAFE!
