It doesn’t seem to matter how big of a hard drive you have, it will eventually fill up. Many times just seeing which directory is using the most space can help you find space that can be freed.

I was amazed at just how much I could get accomplished with only the phone, in fact, there were times when I could not have been connected without it.
