    I was taking a look at my SD card the other day and I was noticing there are alot of folders on the SD card for applications that I no longer have. Is there a special process you can go through to clear it up or can it just be deleted with the understanding that i'll lose any apps that I told to install on the SD Card?

    EDIT: Sorry I meant to mention that I am using SS4.96 and that I wanted to make sure that there wasn't anything on the SD Card that I needed to steer clear of.

    I noticed the same thing on my SD card. I just made sure the files pertained to the app I uninstalled and then I deleted them. I would check your download folder for useless stuff as well. Good luck.

    Same issue here. But I noticed that I have many iterations of the same apps on the SD card. Any idea why? Perhaps restoring apps through Titanium Backup after flashing ROMs? Is there a systematic way of deleting the unnecessary iterations of the apps and with avoiding the problem in the future?

    You can just delete them with a file manager. Most of the time they don't take up much space anyway .

    A megabyte here, a megabyte there, pretty soon you're talking about real memory!

    How many folders named "backup" should we need?
    Where are backups done via Chevy Tools stored?
