    can items in internal storage be deleted if not being used?

    well first of all this is my first post..it's also my first smartphone, so still trying to figure it out..don't abuse me too much..my question is this, as i was trying to move music from the internal storage to the sd card, i noticed that there was 399 items cached in the wallpaper section. i was just curious if i could delete these, and if i did delete them, would i have any problems. thanks in advance

    We NEVER abuse n00bs here...we were all n00bs once. I just came to Android last year! We're glad to have you here, and even more so to help you out if we can! Welcome to our community.

    As for the 399 cached items...I'm not sure, to be honest. I seriously don't think there's that many wallpapers included with Android or the Atrix in particular. You might want to drill a bit deeper, and see if you can figure out what they really are. There are some apps that, if deleted, will interfere with getting future software updates and OS updates. So be careful before you go deleting stuff. In any event, the Atrix has GOBS of storage, so it would be quite some time before you felt 'squeezed' for space!

    Welcome to the forums, Mr. Pickle!

    I'm not sure what the 399 items were either, but I'm glad it didn't cause any issues. As long as you're in the "Media" (10+ GB area) area of the internal storage and not the System, Data (2 GB +/-) or Apps (2GB +/-) sections you should be OK.

    1- Use the search function before asking a question--it takes away from new questions to have the same ones pop up over and over.

    I dont mean to seem rude...but PLEASE search for your answer. New questions deserve answers, and we can't see them if the same thing pops up over and over
