    I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask this? Admins feel free to move this thread where it should be. HTC Hero with 8gigs of memory installed. 2.1 OS.

    Like the title says: I am getting an error saying Low on disk space, but I have 6gigs free out of an 8gig MicroSd card. What gives? I suspect all my apps must be installing to the internal memory? Which is low with only 20megs left.
    I am almost sure that is what's happening. Is this by design? If so, is there a way I can install all my apps to the microsd card? I also have Astro File Manager installed and it is managing my system\apps cache and has placed the dir on: tmp/.astro/ So it's not a cache issue. Any ideas?

    Thanks!!

    You are correct. Applications are stored to internal memory. This is set to change in 2.2. Also some application store their data to internal memory as well.
