Galaxy Tab - Low On Space

Several days ago the Galaxy Tab shows this following error with a red SD card flashing on the top left of the status bar. 

Low On Space

Database memory very low.
Please delete contacts, call logs, messages, etc.

The Galaxy Tab error also comes with a frustrating lag on everything. I've searched on the Internet for answers but to no avail. Some recommends to delete all you contacts, call logs and messages. Some recommends to clear the cache of the Galaxy Tab. I've tried to delete some, but the problem still occurs.

Then from the MainScreen, I went to the MenuKey>Settings>SD Card and Phone Storage. There I can see that the personal memory is full. Then I continued surfing for the answers, and some of them recommend to format the whole system and return to its factory settings. The techie ones recommend to do some hacking and increase the internal personal memory size.

I don't think of returning to factory settings is going to be the answer, and hacking the Galaxy Tab is just not suitable just yet. Then I tried going here and there on the Galaxy Tab and found the answer for the error. I found out that the only problem with it is just there are too many cache and history saved in the Galaxy Tab browser. Duh... Easy-peasy.

So, if you have the same problem, what you need to do is.

Open the browser

MenuKey>More Options>Settings>

Then click the followings:

 * Clear Cache
 * Clear History
 * Clear All Cookie Data
 * Clear Form Data

Now the Galaxy Tab runs like during its glory days. However, back in my mind, I know that the problem will occur again in the future. When that time comes, I think I'm going to have to hack the Galaxy Tab after all. Now that the rumours about OS update for the Galaxy Tab, I just can't wait to upgrade it to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
