Re: 1.3GB of 2GB media card is occupied by 'others' in memory use

It is UC browser 7.8.
The one I am using is specially optimized for Blackberry.It is good for downloads.You can resume a downloading file if an error occurs.Option for pausing the download is also available.It also maintains good downloading speed

If it allows you to save the download and continue it later there must be something that it leaves on yoir phone and it may have something to do with the "others" that contains data.

1. Appdata(which contains applicationcache.db deep inside he folder net_rim_bb_browser_daemon in the appdata)

2. Folder media-contains files
Musicart.db , podcastart.db , videoart.db and 2 thumbfiles

Can these help?

Re: 1.3GB of 2GB media card is occupied by 'others' in memory use

Those are remaining cache indexing database files related to those two apps. The device OS creates them upon reboot and scanning the media card to allow instant access to for those apps... same as the 'thumbnail.dat" files created in the media folder, etc.

 

Personally, I'd not worry about them.

So isn't there any way to stop this 'other' from growing(except from removing UC Browser)

Re: 1.3GB of 2GB media card is occupied by 'others' in memory use

Try and see what happens, if you remove the UC browser, you'll still get cache files created by the podcast app, etc.

I think you will.
