The problem may be you have not enough free memory on rootfs. Try the following command in X-terminal to see all three partitions:
    df -h / /home /home/user/MyDocs
There is a space between the three folders "/", "/home" and "/home/user/MyDocs" in the command.

Is it possible to "clean" that 1.8G
Seems like this:

rootfs 227.9M 142.8M 80.9M 64% /
/dev/mmcblk0p2 2.0G 1.8G 32.6M 98% /hom
/dev/mmcblk0p1 27.0G 6.3G 20.7M 24% /hom
/user/MyDocs

~ $

That folder is used for applications. How many applications do you have installed? And are any of those really big?

That 2GB partition is not only where applications get installed (under /opt) but also where all your data & multimedia files go under "My Documents", i.e. music, video clips, videos recorded with the camera, etc.

Use the File Manager to check how many large files you have stored in e.g. Documents, Images, Audio clips, Video clips folders available under the "N900" in the File Manager. You can move them to the Memory card and this way you'll free memory for applications.

No, the MyDocs folder is a separate 27G partition.

Done. I move all my images,video clips etc. To memory card.
Now Nokia900 have 24.6 GB free memory card 11.27 free and still that memory for installable applications have only 136.5 MB available.

Of course, silly me. Sorry, I must have been too tired writing that.

roferofe,

You haven't told us how many (and which) applications you have installed. There are some applications that take quite a lot of memory. The biggest of all is Sygic Mobile Maps. With just maps of one region it may take up nearly 1 GB, and even more with several maps installed.

After I installed Sygic Maps + map of Central Europe free space on the 2 GB partition dropped by over 500 MB and now I have about 0,5 GB free...

This space may be also occupied by different kinds of temporary data. For instance, some GPS applications cache maps in their folders stored in that memory.

It's really difficult to help you without knowing which apps you have.

Well, the apps you listed are all quite small and shouldn't be taking even a small fraction of that memory.

I think there must be some kind of file system corruption on your unit. And if so then the only solution that comes to my mind is to REFLASH the device manually, using Flasher software and both the rootfs and eMMC images. This way you'll get a 'factory state' device with all memory free.

Prior to flashing, make a backup using the Backup application and then restore it to get your contacts, messages, settings and apps back...

P.S. Regarding Sygic, you don't have to get it manually from their site. It is available in the Ovi store so simply get it from there. But that's only AFTER you clean up your device as the current size of free memory is too small for it.

A few hours ago,I went to Nokia care office. They said to me that only thing that they can do is run new software to it,but its 20 €. I paid that and after operation there was same/latest software what have already been there.
Only difference was,at massmemory gone tilt or something.
My n900 is now under service some time,maybe 2-3 weeks.
Before I leave the care office,I ask them to set factory settings to phone.
I´ll be back when I get my n900 again.

Geez! How could you give your device to such incompetent people!

You need Maemo Flasher. You can download it (and the firmware files to flash the device) from here:

Hello again and first thanks for all tips that you all gave me. Finally n900 is in my hand. Nokia care probably reflash it and now sygic maps works fine.

Thank You Very Happy Roferofe
