Use the desktop software; you should be able to clear each database.

I am using Blackberry 8300 v4.2.2. I am looking for some way to do the following-
1. Get a List of Databases (e.g. Address Book DB, Content Store DB, Folders DB, Message DB, Tasks DB etc.)
2. Get Size of each database in KBs (much the same way, as it is presented when we select "Options" -> "Status" -> Menu Key -> "Database Sizes".

Is there any way to get a list of all databases along with there sizes
Database List alone and then query a database size given its name/id ?


Thanks in Advance,

Re: Get a List of All Databases

There is no BlackBerry side API that allows this.  Desktop Add-ins for Desktop Manager do have access to the databases on a BlackBerry.  Please have a look at the desktop sample included with the BlackBerry JDE.
