    When you first get your EVO there's a lot of trying out of apps. At least there has been for me. When using Astro I have noticed a lot of 'debris' left behind on my sd card from uninstalled apps. Is there an app to assist in cleaning all this up without having to go into each folder and guess?

    This is a curious question and i would also like to know the answer, but in the mean time here is what i did..

    After trying out ADW and LauncherPro and all the different things to go with it, i found that i had the same issue. I was about to do a hardrest anyway to help out my battery life so i copied my pics, music and 3rd party .apk's to my computer and formatted the disk (FAT32) Loaded my pics and stuff back on the disc and the phone created all the folders and what not that it needed with out my doing anything to it. whether or not this will work with out the hard reset i can not be sure, but i imagine another helpful soul around here can shed some light on the idea.

    Basically I format the MiniSD, and the phone re-created the needed folders leaving me with only what i was still using on the disc...

    That , at least, is a workable solution if no app exists
