    When you install an app to the SD card, what is the name of the folder or directory it goes to? I have Astro file manager and when I use it to look at all the folders on the SD card, I don't see any folder that remotely looks like it would be the one. I have opened up all folders that I don't know what's in them and I don't see the apps. Unless I'm missing something. Has anyone figured the name of the folder containing these SD card installed apps? Thanks

    LOL, its in the folder called ASEC. The folder is one up above your sd card folder. When my Astro opens up. It opens to a screen with 3 folders: ASEC, SDCARD, SECURE. Your apps go to ASEC.

    For those that don't use a market app(like Astro) to manage your apps, you can still easily find them.

    Settings->Applications->Manage Applications.

    From there, you can uninstall, or move some apps to your SD card.

    You may have to hit the back button several time to go all the way back to the screen that shows only those 3 files.

    Or you can just do a search for the name of the folder.

    The directory is /mnt
