    Hi Folks

    Just wondered, it seems that sometimes when you download an app to try and then you remove it, does this completely remove all the files from the internal memory??, im sure i have done this before and it seems i loose a small piece of memory after uninstalling :thinking:

    Just wondered if there was a certain uninstaller that completley removes all files & folders??

    Thanks Pete :)

    In my experience, uninstalling the app from the phone removes most, if not all traces of the app from the internal memory.

    However, there can still be files related to the app on the SD card.

    Hopefully somebody else will be able to advise you further.

    Some apps leave install folders & the odd one will leave a file or two (usually settings type stuff). I usually have a clean up when its connected to the PC, deleting clearly related to apps I know I've uninstalled.
