Thread: Memory conundrum

  1. #1
    Default Memory conundrum
    i recently deleted all of my music on my iphone. that should have freed up about 5 gigs but instead nothing happened. now i have an iphone with no music and apparently 6 gigs of nothing. in itunes it says that 6.7 gigs of memory is taken by "other" if that matters. please help i really dont feel like reformatting.

    A reformat is your best option but you could try deleting
    /var/root/Media/iTunes_Control_temp
    /var/root/Media/iTunes_Control_2
    if you have them.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    Did those music files still exist on your iPhone ?

    How did you delete them? The only correct way is to "un-sync" them in iTunes. If you deleted them with SSH or something then that's not the right way to go. If you did un-sync them but pulled the cord before the process was done this can cause the same issue. End result - you have to restore.
