Thank you SwiftWizdom
Thanks, SwiftWizdom. I have used Oxios, but this problem isn't so much the volatile memory, it's the file memory that gets filled up.
As far as I know, Oxios helps reclaim ram memory, not rom.
Interestingly enough, I haven't had that problem in quite a while now. I do, however, need to hard reset regularly. Today I was taking notes at a meeting using my pda and PocketWord. I also tried to take a photo, but the camera wouldn't work (the screen showed what I was aiming at, but the camera wouldn't actually record the photo). I had to hard-reset 3 times today!
Either the file area is somehow corrupt, or there are lots of problems with the various versions of WM 6.1 I've tried. Because at least 3 versions now have given me somewhat similar problems, I suspect that there is some defect with the file system which causes problems from time to time.
If there were a way to checkdisk and repair, or at least mark the bad sectors, I might be able to rely on my pda more ....
Thanks for your suggestion,
