    I have an 8G Touch - is it safe to use all but say 200M of that for data (music, photos, apps (with some data) etc. ) ?
    Does it use any scratch space on the disk ?

    Come to that, how much non-disk memory does it have or use ?
    I realise its all flash memory but it must be logically organised some way into ram and disk. How does that work ?

    i would say it's safe to fill it up as all the essential files are already loaded in the memory.

    You can use it. But if you have Applications that need to save and stuff, I would just leave a little open.

    If you noticed when you first got it, you might realize that it really has like 7.2GB's of space or whatever left.
    That's because of the OS, etc.

    You can fill it as full as you want- it's Flash memory. There's no paging file or overhead room needed- all the iPod OS files are already on there and secure and the 1st Gen Touch had 128MB DRAM for RAM- not sure if the 2G has the same amount or more.

    EDIT- good point above about room for any apps that have save data though.

    I've filled a Nano up to the point where I had 22kb left.
