    Hey guys. Over a period of time I've downloaded and removed a bunch of apps and I've noticed that all the folders created by these apps don't get removed from the SD when I uninstall the apps. Is there an easy way to get all these "junk" files off my phone? I would do it manually but I don't know which folders I need and which folders I don't.


    Thanks.

    I just look at the files on my card every day or two and trash anything that looks like it doesn't belong. Most are at top level, a few are in the Android folder.

    My suggestions is to do it manually. I spent 30minutes doing so a few days ago and freed up a good 40% of my SD card.

    Besides, I rather do it myself since I know I won't delete anything important.

    Just be careful when you're selecting what to delete. I started cleaning up folders...ended up reloading my phone later and found some of the folders deleted, to be necessary.

    I'd think that would be fairly easy. Just delete anything with the name of an app you already uninstalled and dont touch anything else?
