Symbian OS 9.x System Folders : Explained

Only use this guide only for learning and modifying the grey matter in your brain.
I do not take any responsibility for damage caused if you modify these files/folders. Please make sure you know exactly what you are doing. I might not.

Inside C:\Private folder there are some sub folders :
DBS_100065FF_Contacts.cdb – Contacts Database
DBS_100069CC_btregistry – Bluetooth device List
DBS_10207216_SWinsLog.db – Instalation log of Softwares
for OS9.1 phones ( N73-1), some of the folders are different. For example, the
C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_100065FF_Contacts.cdb – Contacts Database
C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_100069CC_btregistry – Bluetooth device List
C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_10207216_SWinsLog.db – Instalation log of Softwares
C:\Private\10003a5b\Calendar – Calendar File

\10003A3F\import\apps\ – All your shortcuts to installed applications are saved in here in .RSC format, simply rename the .RSC to .RSCX to temporarily remove them from Menu, you can rename .RSCX back to .RSC later on.
\101f401d\Logdbu.dat is the log file.
\101F4CD2\Applications.dat is the file that holds the settings and locations of icons and custom folders located on your phone’s MENU.
C:\resource\apps – The MIF files (Icon Files) Of the Softwares Installed in the phone,
C:\sys\data\mmcstore – This file has the Memory Card Password, Open with a text editor to view the current memory card password.
contains the mbm file of operator logos
There is huge file in the phone, c:/private/102072c4/reserved.bin, 4.5 Mb size of plain 0xff.
Deleted it and free up phone memory check if your phone has one.
the files are for FOTA (firmware over the air) because when i remove it, and go to the device mgr. app it reapears, so its safe to remove it, we wont need it as we never get any FOTA updates.
Access Points:
access points are stored in C:\Private\10202be9\persists\cccccc00.cre. Just make a copy of cccccc00.cre, and restore it to your phone (or send it to another phone), restart your phone, and you have your access point settings back just the way they were when you made the backup.
Your bluetooth name is in C:\Private\10202be9\persists\10204dac.cre, your paired devices are in C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_100069CC_btregistry
The bookmarks of Symbian’s built-in web browser are stored in C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_101FD685_BrowserBookmarks. db.
Calendar entries are stored in C:\Private\10003a5b\Calendar.
The cookies of Symbian’s built-in web browser are in C:\Private\101f8530\cookies.dat. Restart your phone after restoring or transfering the cookies file. If you’ve told your browser to delete your cookies, there is no cookies.dat file in C:\Private\101f8530.
Your SMSs and mails from Symbian’s built-in messaging application are stored in C:\Private\1000484b. If you’ve told your phone to store
messages on your memory card, they are in E:\Private\1000484b. Copy the entire folder, and restore when needed.
The notes you write in Symbian’s Notes application are stored in C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_101F8878_Notepad.dat.
If you can’t delete or replace the file, it’s because Symbian is using it. But there’s a workaround for this problem: go to settings, data manager, memory, and select “back up phone memory” from the options menu. While your phone is making the backup, you can delete or replace the DBS_101F8878_Notepad.dat file.
Your profiles are stored in C:\Private\10202be9\persists\101f8798.cre. If you restore the backup, restart your phone.
T9 dictionary:
Your frequently used words in SMS and email are stored in C:\Predic\101F8615_F.dat. You don’t even need to hack your phone to get into this folder.
