HTC says it will get rid of Droid Incredible's elephant-like memory in its browser
HTC announced that it will be sending out a "software maintenance release" that will be "pushed out" to Droid Incredible units in the near future. This will eliminate the recently discovered problem that the device has with taking thumbnail screenshots of random web sites that you have surfed to, and placing them in a folder that cannot be removed-even with a factory reset. Until the manufacturer has a chance to send out the fix, there is a manual cure. First, go to the "Settings" menu and select "SD Card and Phone Storage". Lastly, select "Format Phone Storage". Some important notes. You need to back up all of your files in internal storage, including images and music, before you do this because this manual fix will delete them. Other HTC Android devices with HTC Sense are not subject to this problem because the thumbnails are sent to an SD card which can easily be removed before you trade in or sell your phone. But if you do own the Droid Incredible and want to keep some of those special sites you visited on the low down, fear not. You can try the manual fix (again, don't forget to back up files in internal storage), or wait for the cure directly from HTC. In the meantime, just don't lend anyone your phone.

Keep posting this, its a stupid glitch and a retarded article. And anyone who knows anything about these phones knows how to delete them before going to a factory reset...NOBODY is going to just factory reset just because 1 folder has crap in it. When the folder name was listed I went straight to astro file manager opened the folder selected all then delete problem solved . Why keep bringing it up as if it was a security breach at fort Knox.? You can access the folder by syncing to your pc and delete. There needs to be a filter between user an keyword before retarded articles like this one get posted more than 2 times.

it's a chance for I-PhoneArena to remind you that android is inferior in their opinion

I've been told the Incredible is going on the end of life list soon. Anyone else heard that? I would assume it's because of the two new Motorolas coming out and the supply problem that would factor into this decision...
