Re: Blackberry Playbook duplicate files!!!

I have not tested BAR files taking up extra space in a while. I did install 6 gig worth of apps before and they took up about 7 gig of space in the end. not as much as you claim with this newer OS version but I will test it out next time I wipe my PlayBook.

Doubt that will work with virtual links, users might end up with everything deleted in the end.

Re: Blackberry Playbook duplicate files!!!

I have the same annoying problem, only I have triplicate files! One with Music in Misc written with large M and one in music with small m. I bought the 64Gb as it was a good price for the music storage system, but not when the playbook makes a double copy of everything!!

Re: Blackberry Playbook duplicate files!!!

Hi Sej,

If you go back and read the first page of this topic you'll see that we talk about virtual folders.

The PlayBook doesn't copy your music, it just makes the files appear in more than one location so that all the apps will work properly.

To prove a point, if you delete a file in one music folder, it will immediately disappear in the other location.

Re: Blackberry Playbook duplicate files!!!

It just shows that its double but if you delete one another will automatically deleted you can test it by your self also..

those all are virtual links with each other don't worry about it......
