Archos 5 it 500gb, running out of space for installing apps

Post by metallicblue »

Hi there new to this Stuff, I have just purchased the 500gig model, when I install apps its being installed in the system storage space and not the extended 500gig partition so running out of space....Is there any way of increasing the system space or directing the apps to install on the 500gig partition?

You can only install apps in the apps partition and there is no way to resize it that I know of.

Starting with android 2.2 (I think), you can chose to move apps to the sd card (if they are compatible), but we might never see 2.2 on our Archos 5's so I guess you're out of luck

Sorry... I wish there was a way around this problem too because I don't have nearly all the apps that I want to have installed at once.

seems pointless to have 500gigs for videos and music....when you have to install and unistall apps in such small partition... ah well, thanks for your reply, lets hope they come up with the new 2.2 for it..cheers.
