View Full Version : N91 harddrive question..! ?

13-05-2006, 08:57 PM
I was wondering where I can find the scandisk and defrag functions on Nokia N91???

l've been able to find the format function(s) ,but not the others....

l've been in : tools--->harddisk-->options--->tools ... but l only see the fomat functions!!!

...or for that mater is there such a function?? It is mentioned in the help file on the phone it self but not in the user-manual?? :con?

Thanks in advance!

there might be a difference between the Euro Prototype and the official Nokia released ones.. which firmware are you on right now?

my firmware :
V1.00.028.03 29-03-06 RM43

yeah i've tried this and it works. im just baffled that nokia decided to remove the scan and defrag tools from the hard disk options.

I know there are other n91 phones that have these options that allow you to do it on the fly i.e. not needing you to detect the n91 hard disk as a mass storage. there must be a reason why nokia decided to remove them in the first place.

My thoughts exactly.... It's is rather odd that Nokia decided to leave a group with the function(s)...while deactivating it others...... interesting...

I know about the mass storage "trick" ...but I was hoping to find a way to do it directly from the phone it self...ahh well can't get everything... :(

there was a disk defrag option in pre-release version of N91,but I do not know the reasons why Symbian took it off. It was next to the format hard drive option.

hopefully newer releases of the firmware of N91, in the future will include it, or some will create an application.
