    I was just browsing my SD card on my computer last night and realized that there is a lot of folders/files left over from programs I uninstalled a long time ago. Has anyone just gone in there and deleted them? I am actually pretty surprised about how much stuff was left over. I guess the unistall is like windows where it doesn't always get everything.

    Yup, I treat my SD card like any other computer directory and add/delete files and folders all the time.

    Yes, I do. A lot of apps leave save data etc which I just delete.

    I suspect this is worse (in terms of MB left) after Apps to SD.

    Good to know I am not the only one, I am going to have to take a closer look because there seems to be a lot of junk that isn't need anymore on there.
