    in the last day I've noticed the 40MB cache has dropped to 17.7MB when only a few days ago it was around the 38MB mark...

    is there anyway to clean this? I've tried 1click cache cleaner but that only cleans a 1MB at most and I dont think its cleaning *THAT* cache anyway...

    sorry to sound like a bit of a newbie here...but the cache searching I did just kept coming up with use said program above :confused:

    Do you mean app cache or the actual /cache partition?

    if the latter, you can format it via clockworkmod recovery, but not sure why you would need to.

    is it major? I mean im down to 16.8MB now and I've even uninstalled a few things?

    im not going to format it....I just want to know why it could be going down etc and if it goes further will it affect the phone?

    believe me I trust your word dan when you say something like "im not sure why you would need to" lol...just wanna know why it is how it is..

    It's nothing to do with apps or app cache.

    The cache partition may be used if you're running intensive games etc.

    All cache is, are files etc that are cached for easy and quick access. If it fills up, the less used stuff will drop off the end so it can fill up some more.

    Basically forget it exists
