    I would like to know how to go about cleaning up my memory. I think I have files on my tab and sd card that I do not need. I see this when I hook my Galaxy Tab up to my Mac. I think this because this is what I see...



    Tab memory

    Alarms
    Android
    ApplifierVideoCache
    burstlyimageCache
    burstlyVideocache
    DCIM
    Download
    innerGarden <~~(I think this was an app the little one installed and I uninstalled later)
    Input
    kindle <~~(I know this is one I want to keep)
    MagicRing <~~(?)
    mm_uuid.info <~~(this looks like a text tab)
    MovieMakerLib
    Movies
    Music <~~(duh...)


    Then when I look at my SD card this is what I see. I might want to note that the SD card came from my first android cell phone. I put it into my tab to add memory to it


    Android
    browser
    com
    crashlogs
    DCIM
    Download
    glu
    incrediapp.robodefense.backup.full <~~(This was a game I played on my phone NOT my tab)
    kindle
    logs
    LOST.DIR
    media
    Messagaing
    mms_oom_hprof_data
    my_flix
    my_music
    my_pix
    my_sounds
    twc-cache



    As you could guess I opened up a few of these and they went to empty folders?!?! I don't really understand to much of it but I like the idea of my tab having EVERY bit of memory space it can get.

    What can I do to get this figured out? Can I remove some of these folders because they will never be used?

    What folders would I NEED TO KEEP?

    What folders I can delete?

    LOST.DIR, isn't important. If you use Windows. Don't delete if you have another OS.
    All those other files- Don't delete the files, if you have the related app.
    Example: "Example-app", if there is a app with the same name, or similar (Exampleapp), don't delete it. It won't do serious harm, but will delete the apps data

    That's cool man thanks a lot! I was just a bit confused as it just seemed like a lot of what I would see as needless. But if I need to keep the folders and not the files in the folders then ...I have some work to do.

    Your welcome
    Are you going to delete app?
    -If so delete the folder entirely. Sometimes un-installing apps dosen`t get rid of the folders. This does remove the data.

    A lot of the apps are already gone and the folders included. I was just thinking of not needing all of the folders on the sd card because anything I want to download will be saved on the tab. My music and pics ect will be on the sd card.

    If you have photos move them to somewhere safe.
    If all the apps are deleted, delete the folders. Unless you have a photo app, in which that will delete your photos you made with the app.

    I use an app named Clean Master that gets rid of leftover remnants of old apps. It can really reclaim a lot of memory.
