is a precious commodity when it comes to Pocket PCs. Even with units now
that come with at least 64MB or RAM, it is easy to use this up if one is not
aware of how it is being used by the Pocket PC.
One of the main causes of having insufficient memory can sometimes be attributed
to a voice recording which has been long forgotten but still resides in main
RAM. Sometimes it's the abundance of email attachments stored for
sentimental value, and most of the time, particularly if the user uses Pocket
Internet Explorer, is the large amount of Temporary Internet Files stored in
folders nested deep into what seems to be oblivion.
Unlike the previous versions of the Pocket PC. Windows Mobile 2003 based units

There used to be a tool for the old Pocket PC to limit the size of the cache.
Sadly, this old utility no longer works for Windows Mobile 2003 based Pocket
But the nice thing is, this is something which can easily be remedied by a
Using your well trusted Registry Editor, you will have to go to
you will have to change the DWORD Data from 19456 (decimal value) to any value
of your preference from 512 up to 19456. I amusing these values basing it
on the Microsoft default value of 512 and the amount set by default in my iPAQ
h2210 being 19456. These values reflect the size in KB.
DWORD Data 19456
In this example, the value was changed from 19456KB to 2048KB:
This then limits the size of the cache to 2MB which leaves the rest of the RAM
free for other applications to use.
