    Hi All.

    I downloaded an APK to my PC and with the intent to install it using the HTC Sync install app (HTC Sync for Telus [2.x?]). Before the install attempt, I had >15MBs free on the internal storage. The install "failed" with the phone presenting the dialog indicating that I don't have enough space with the button to goto "Manage Applications".

    So the install failed, and I am assuming that nothing was "installed", but now my internal storage is down to 5MBs. So I am suspecting that although the installed failed, the transfer of the APK to the phone did not fail.

    Could it be the APK is still around on the internal storage?

    when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

    if the storage space has decreased, and you've done nothing to it that you're aware of, then the apk must have been 'left' on it.

    :p

    Thats my theory. But how do I reclaim the space? A power cycle didn't clear it out. A search for APK didn't find it using ASTRO....help!
