    I have Astro File Manager installed. I have not used it much but now have a question I can't find a answer to. I added some files to the SDCard when it was connected to my PC. I go to Astro and it looks like, at least on my Incredible that my sdcard is listed under mnt/emmc. I have installed the TitantiumBackup and it thinks my SDCard is mnt/sdcard but that looks like it is the internal memory when I connect the phone to the PC. I did a backup and instead of installing the backup to my sdcard it all went to the internal memory. What good is a backup there? I thought the purpose was to put the backup to the sdcard so you could easily have it on a external card.

    If my sdcard should be mnt/sdcard how do I get the phone to use that for the removable sdcard? On the root of my internal file system I have a /sdcard folder which looks like it is the same as the /mnt/sdcard folder. The /mnt/sdcard/ and the mnt/emmc/ are different and the mnt/emmc/ folder has all my sdcard files and folders.

    Am I missing something somewhere? Why is it so difficult to find the sdcard files and is there a way to fix my file system or TitantiumBackup to find the right system? I am at a loss on this one.

    HTC Support to the rescue. They had me copy the SD card files to my PC and then do a format from the phone. I did that but what got formated was /mnt/sdcard/ which is part of the internal storage. I then took the original 2GB card that came with the phone and put it in a card reader on my PC and did a format there (FAT32). After the format I copied the files back to that card and put it in my phone. All works as it should, in a file manager /sdcard or /mnt/sdcard showed what was on my SD Card. I then put my 8GB card in the card reader on my PC and did a FAT32 format on it and then copied the files back to it. I then swapped the cards and now I can see the 8GB SD card as either /sdcard or /mnt/sdcard as it should.

    Now all I need to find out is what should really be in /mnt/emmc and see if I can get that back the way it should be. Anyone know what directories & files should be there?
