Clearing i850 Memory

I have a Nextel i850 and tried to upload some custom ringtones. After much trial and error I finally got it to work. However the problem is that I uploaded a 6.6mb wav file that did not work. However, it still took up that much space. So 70% of my phones space is being taken up and there is no way to delete it (since it doesnt show up anywhere). Does anyone know how to find a "bad file" that doesn't appear under normal ringtones/apps through some kind of archive feature? Or possible by using my computer? If not, is the only way of freeing up the space to do a hard reset back to manufacturer settings? Lastly, if this is the only way, I need to know the security code for doing so.

I'm not sure about the first part(deleting the one file), but as far as resetting to the factory defaults, unless you changed the security code it should be 000000.
