    I am using a S2... wondered whenever you uninstall an app...I doesn't completely remove the files and folders from the SD card... Eg. You uninstall a large game app, but the files (700mb) is undeleted...

    Is there any apps that can remove it all together or we've got to do it manually (which means removing important files without you knowing)....

    I think you have to do it manually. I.e. using a file and folder managment app like file-explorer. Apps that could do it for you would typically have been installed before the other app that you want to remove.

    i thought i remember seeing an app on XDA that someone built (in testing phase) that searched for orphaned files left behind by uninstalled apps. I cant find it at the moment but if I do, I'll post the link.

    You have to uninstall these files manually. They are usually files left behind by apps in case you decide to install the app again later. These files could be saved games or other app settings and backup files.
