    Hi,

    I've been reading all the thread on the "Low on Space" error, but none of them are helping me.

    Phone: HTC Desire
    OS: 2.2
    Majority of apps moved using App2SD, only 8 left...

    Then I used the Android SDK & USB debugging to allow more moving.

    I've cleared cache's, deleted photo's and whatever I could do

    So, what the HELL is taking up all that space ??????

    Chers,

    If you go into "manage applications" then press menu and sort by size you will see the biggest culprits.

    The froyo apps2sd still leaves part of the app on the phone aswell.

    Google Earth.

    31MB

    Said it was on the SD card

    Deleted it, 31MB of space freed up on internal storage!

    :) but :thinking:

    Re-installed Google earth after deleting.
    6MB download
    Install size 22MB
    Move to SD card using App2SD
    17MB still used up on internal storage !!!

    App2SD looks like a load of crap

    Surely that only shows apps that can't be moved to the SD card. You need to look at the "On Phone" tab (or looks at Manage Applications as Casual Pete suggests).

    Ahh. So the app's only showing what can be moved. What does settings / manage applications say?

    Maybe also remove the apps that you really don't need, like Adobe Flash Player (because Sense has it already installed in the ROM).
    Also, when you open App2SD, it should suggest you to clean the applications cache. This could also free certain space.
    If "On Phone" tab shows zero apps, then this application has done all it could to help you.
