    So I was attempting to download an apk off of 4shared when I noticed that my SD card is extremely low on space due to it having stuff from apps I deleted AGES ago. Is there any safe way to get rid of all of that?

    Edit: PLEASE keep it simple.

    Yep, it's pretty easy to do (and safe, though proceed with caution): In a file explorer app like Total Commander, navigate to the /sdcard directory. You'll see plenty of files and folders associated with different apps. If you no longer use the app, you can delete the folder associated with the no-longer-present app.

    Check an app called sd-maid out.
    I've used it a few times. Seems to work well.

    That's half the fun!
    With the free version you can only do so much.
    Find something about cleaning corpes. Or something.
    Run the app cleaner.

    Anything on the sd card can be deleted without harming the phone. Just don't delete pictures or applicatiion folders if you want to keep that data

    just make sure you're looking at the EXTERNAL SD card, not the internal SD card.
