There's a trash feature on a Kindle?Octochick said:Also try plugging in your Kindle to your computer and then empty the trash. Just because you have deleted things from you K does not mean they are completely gone, till you empty the trash. This will remove them and restore some of your memory.
I think she means the trash can on your desktop.CS said:There's a trash feature on a Kindle?
What if I emptied the trash can long after I disconnected the Kindle from my PC? This is really weird.Leslie said:I think she means the trash can on your desktop.
I tried this myself. First, I deleted a bunch of old newspapers and a few samples. The memory on my Kindle went up from 65 MB to 89 MB. Then I hooked it up to the computer and emptied the trash on the desktop. The Kindle memory when down to 88 MB.
Not really sure what was going on with that!
Maybe when Octochick gets back online she can clarify a bit...it's not clear to me what the relationship between the Kindle and the trash is.CS said:What if I emptied the trash can long after I disconnected the Kindle from my PC? This is really weird.
That's what I did...used the content manager. Hooking it up to the computer and emptying the trash didn't seem to make any difference.jmiked said:I have to believe that the Kindle will take care of all this by itself if you delete the files from the Content Manager.
CS, you have to empty the trash while your Kindle is connected because it is actually on your Kindle. The Kindle doesn't know that the trash has been emptied on the computer while it was disconnected; it needs to actually hear the event to properly clean up. Try connecting the Kindle and emptying the trash again - I bet it will recognize that the Kindle needs to be emptied, even if the hard drive doesn't.CS said:Okay, but my question is, what if you empty trash after you disconnect the Kindle? Does all of that old junk still take up space on your Kindle? Doesn't make much sense to me. And if it somehow does take up space, how do you get that space back if you've already emptied your trash?
