    SAME PROBLEM!!! Stocks and where both uninstalled for no reason. I've left them on the internal rather than the externalc ard. I have a habit of installing what I can on the external card because the original droid had very limited app space.

    I don't see why one cant keep apps on the SD card. I rebooted and had two apps disappear from the SD card but not others I had installed there... odd.

    on my original droid i kept apps on the SD card with no problems.

    I think we should have the option to use any available space for apps. I think it is ridiculous only using 4gbs of space when the phone has 32gbs (16gbs internal - give or take and a 16 gb external card).

    I've only downloaded a handful of apps & I'm already receiving out if space messages.

    My only gripe & my two cents :)

    I'm seeing the same symptoms, but it's not all of the apps I've moved to "media" that are uninstalling. It's just some, and it seems pretty random.

    I'm real new to Gingerbread; up until Friday I'd been using an OG Droid that was maxed out at 2.2.1. How do I tell my phone that I want to move apps to the actual SD card and not to "media"? I seem to remember being asked that question during the initial setup, but of course now I can't remember what to do to change this. Doh! Also, do I need to move all the apps back to phone before I make the change to SD or will the OS do the moving for me?

    Thanks,

    -Gary

    This happens on my D3 for time to time. A reboot fixes things until it happens again. It's not usually the same apps that do it either, seems random.

    I agree, and when I save the apps to the SD card it will start to delete them off the SD card and say com.app. blah blah blah and it won't let me open the app! I want to put all my apps that can be saved on the SD card on the SD card because I want as much memory free for the phone to be faster but I can't because it will delete them! Does anyone else have this problem? Do you know how to fix it?

    Try downloading the app again, usually works.

    I don't move any apps. My xda premium app went missing so I reinstalled it. Also dowloaded a racing game about 50MB. It wrongly said not enough space left. Tried it again and it worked.

    Looks like an update is needed for some bugs.
