    Default Determining Free Space on SD Card

    What is the easiest way to look and see what is on the SD card that is taking up space? I have the 32gig one that comes with the Thunderbolt, and even though all I have are some photos, there is about 12 gigs being "used". Thanks.

    Get a file explorer like Astro from the market and start looking

    Eh, I was hoping there was an easier way, thank you. I was already doing this and thought to myself that it was quite tedious. One question, there are no hidden files or folders on the SD that I wont be able to see for any reason, right?

    Plug into computer via USB then open the sdcard and sort the folders/file by size. From there you can see folder size in ascending/descending or base on your pc

    Dang, that has a LOT of different information, but I couldn't tell if it does what I needed, will it sort out the highest memory using data on the SD card? If so, thanks a ton.

    Edit: I see that it lets you manage the SD card, but does it sort is my question.
