    Hey guys,

    I have a couple apps I have noticed when I open a file it must cache the file internally, but gives me no way to clear. For example Zumodrive and repligo reader both will show 20+mb in my settings, but clear cache is greyed out and shows 0mb. However when I delete these apps and reinstall them, I get all that internal memory back. Any ideas?

    I am running a rooted Nexus One.

    Have you tried some of the apps like Cachemate? For me get the job done on a rooted phone. Just use them prudently as some apps (example: Google Maps) behave badly when their caches as messed with.
