    download folder on sd card full

    I was looking around on my sd card and found a bunch of files that I don't know if I need. they are all named download###.apk are these leftover from updates? can I delete them, they look to be a big waste of space. Thanks

    The download folder on your SD is where anything that gets downloaded from your phone's browser is stored and .apk is the extension for Android applications, these serve no purpose in the download folder unless you are saving them, I delete my whole download folder all the time and when you download something new via the browser, the system will make another download folder for you

    I believe download###.apk files in your /download directory are left over from unsuccessful app installs from the market. You can safely delete these.

    If you are unsure then mount your phone to your computer and make a copy of your SD card then delete the files. If you need them remount and copy back to your SD card.

    Same here. Always a good idea to have backups.

    Hi All!

    I have a question along this same line if someone would be so kind.....

    Is it "safe" to go into your phone and condolidate like folders, and then delete the empty ones? For example: I have three separate folders of wallpapers (different apps) would it be disastrous if I created 1 general wallpaper folder and got rid of the other 2?

    Also, could someone give me an idea of which folders I should absolutely stay away from??

    Thank you!
