    I have android v2.3.6 And when i uninstall apps they are leaving hidden files on my internal memory. seeing as my external sd is almost completely functionless this poses a frustrating issue. countless google searches only bring up apps for hiding files which i want to do the opposite of. these apps only unhide files hidden by the apps themselves. I'm using a tracfone lg optimus logic (lgl35g) please help

    SD Maid will identify those orphan files/folders and give you the option to remove them (all or individually). However, unless your device is rooted it won't find them all.
