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......

Re: Blackberry Playbook duplicate files!!!

hey all. i just stumbled upon this post and had to weigh in. I understand what everyone is saying but ive got one for ya. I have a few movies on my PB for my daughter. When i go into the properties of the videos folder its sitting at about  7 GB. When i gather all the folders up, minus the Android folder, im sitting at about 10 GB, Inside the android folder there is pretty much nothing but 2 movie folders. One is movies, other is Movies. Obviously they are mirror folders so they are both sitting at around 7 GB. so if i were to add that up in total that would be 24 GB. give or take. im rounding to the nearest GB.  i go into my about screen on the PB and it says that of my 29.6 GB of useable space i have 7.8. so you subract that and your sitting at around 22GB. an extra 12 to 14 GB of wasted space is no virtual link.
