I am using a N1E without additional memory. I had understood that, once I archived a book, all but some basic details were removed from the N1E, thereby freeing up memory for additional books. However, I have noticed that, while my available memory keeps going down when I purchase new books, it does not go back up after I archive - even when I archive 5 or more books at a time.
Any thoughts (besides purchasing additional memory)?

The N1e removes all references to the e-book when you archive it, but doesn't delete the e-book file itself. You need to do that yourself. You'll need to know the ISBN number, because the files are all named by ISBN without any hint as to the title.
If you accidentally delete an e-book that isn't archived, you'll just need to re-download it before you can continue reading it. So not a total disaster.

Thanks, Doug, you always have an answer for me!
Edit: OK, I spoke too soon (and clicked the Solved button too soon, too). I keep a spreadsheet of all of the books on my N1E with their ISBN numbers, so this is what I tried to do:
1. I identified a book which I had archived and which I wanted to delete from my NOOK.
2. I found its ISBN number on my spreadsheet.
3. I connected my N1E to my computer and, using Windows Explorer, opened the file of "my B&N downloads."
4. I searched for the ISBN number.
In two of the three cases I tried, the ISBN number was not found in the "my B&N downloads" folder, even though they are showing as archived books on my N1E. In the third case, I did find the ISBN number and deleted the file from the "my B&N downloads" folder.
I also double-checked my NOOK library online; the two books "missing" from the "my B&N downloads" folder are showing in my archived books online, and the ISBN numbers showing for those books in my online library match those shown on my spreadsheet.
