comment Reducing the memory usage of Contacts Storage
After removing the sync from Facebook and Twitter the contents didn't reduce much. I had to delete all the contacts and let them resync from my Google account to finally get it to reduce the size.

You can get apps which will rescan you SD card to pickup any new files downloaded from DropBox. For example appbrain.com/app/sdrescan/com.bero.sdrescan

With my HTC Desire all the 3rd party cables I have bought seem to make a looser connection than the one supplied with the phone.
