    Hi

    Could someone tell me how I can check what is taking up so much room on my SD card. I know how to check what apps have been installed on the SD card but they are not taking up much room yet I have not much space left.

    Also if I buy a new SD card where in th UK would be the best deal and what type should I look for.

    thanks in advance

    cheers

    Amazon or Play would be your best bet for cards.

    Is there a folder called Navigation? That takes up a fair whack (1.5GB).

    Hi

    Cheers for the reply. How or where do I check for the navigation folder? And assuming I find one can I delete it (what is it for?)

    cheers

    I checked all the folders on my phone via the USB link on my computer and cant see any folders titled Navigation. THere are 4 PDF files from orange but these dont take up a huge amount of room. Still dont know how to check everything that is on my SD card is there an app that would help or can some one talk me through how I can do this on phone or computer.

    cheers

    EDIT - found a folder called navigator in the folder .data that takes up 1.31gb, can this be deleted without causing any problems?

    That's the one. I just deleted mine and didn't see any side effects, but then I don't use any of the navigation apps.

    Just back it up to your pc, that way you're covered if something needs it.
