I can't seem to figure this out and it's killing me. I have the 8830 (NOT on enterprise server) and sync with Outlook 2003. Recently my sync started deleting old appointments. Can anybody help with this?
Things to note:
* My calendar settings on bberry have keep appointments at "forever"
* I tried removing and readding the synch configuration settings

Hi and welcome to the foums!
In Desktop Manager for the calendar there is an option to transfer all. I use it because I go back for reference.
Are you experiencing any loss of emails or sms , call logs before "normal"
Please let me know!

Thanks for the comments bifocals.
In my Desktop Manager i have already selected "Transfer All", so I don't think that's the problem. I had changed my settings on the bberry from keep appointments "forever" to keep appointments for "60 days". That helped a little. It now deletes all of my outlook appointments after 60 days (rather than deleting them after a week or two).
I sometimes lose emails on my bberry (not on my outlook). I dont know if it's a synch thing, but I've noticed that emails just disappear from the bberry. I have it set to erase every 15 days, but it's not uncommon for them to erase after only a day or two.
Does that help?

Yes that can be a clue.
Please go to OPTIONS -STATUS
and send me the file free and file total numbers.

I completely feel like the **bleep** now, bifocal. it looks like i was all filled up:
File Free: 0 bytes
File Total: 47841280 Bytes
I just erased a couple of applications (e.g. VZ Navigator), restarted and now I have the following:
File Free: 3898844
File Total: 47841280
I'm guessing that will make the difference?
How do I keep space open? I don't really have much extra on the bberry. No games, only 1 theme, no ringtones... only new applications are like WSJ, NY Times and Google, which I'm guessing don't take room since they're just links. Facebook is probably the biggest.

You have low free memory left on your device. I.
Do you have a lot of third party applications on your BB weather, icall,bbalerts etc?
I do not know your experience level, so if you know this I'm sorry but please read and let me
know if this applies.
Most people close the applications by pressing the escape or red key. This does not close the applications.
Each application has a CLOSE option. For instance if you are in the calendar hit the menu key (spotted key) and scroll down to the bottom CLOSE is listed. Go through each application and press close. Go into the browser press menu and options select cache operations clear all categories and hit escape it will say cleaning memory.
Go to options - security - memory cleaning - enable it. The BB will now clean memory when idle for 5 minutes.
you will have an icon on you screen for memory cleaning make sure you press it. Make sure you use the CLOSE button each time you are done with an application.
Please follow the steps on this link, to allow for all possible device memory.
If you follow these steps and keep up with your memory your phone will operate smoothly.
Please let us know if you need help with any of the steps.

This is great, I did all you suggested. Thank you!
Only thing I couldn't do is this:
<<Go to options - security - memory cleaning - enable it. >>
There is no "Memory Cleaning" option under security (or "options") on either the BB options or Browser options. Don't know if it's hidden somewhere else in the 8830 or called something else. Regardless, my "file free" space keeps growing. So that's a good thing.
