Yes, it probably defaulted to installing applications into RAM. You'll need to delete some of those apps then use the Palm desktop installer to install them again. But this time, select the hard drive on the LifeDrive rather than internal memory/RAM. It does take time to install apps, but once you're done, you won't have to do it again, if that's any consolation. Windows .exe installers do need to be run one by one.
