    Anyone know where I can look on my Droid 2.1 to know where files are saved ? Obviously, I want everything that can be saved on the SD card to be saved on the SD card ( pictures, music, videos, etc).

    I understand from an earlier post that the Apps. are saved in system memory and pictures, music, videos, etc. are save on the SD card. Does this all happen automatically on the Droid ??

    I come from BB and it was always an issue knowing where you were saving your files to.

    On BB, you can "explore" your media card to see what is on there.

    Is there something like this on the Droid 2.1 ? Or is it just a non-issue.

    I guess what I am getting at, is that on the BB curve, you can mistakenly save things to 'system memory' and slow your phone down. I don't know if I need to be aware of where files are being saved on the Droid or not.

    Does the Droid 2.1 automatically save files in the appropriate area.... ie) the SD card vs. 'system memory'

    I still need to watch some of the training videos for beginners on this site - looking forward to that.

    thanks for the help everyone.

    Jason.

    Yes this program will help you explore your files. The directory called /sdcard is your SD card. Good luck, and welcome to the world of android.

    Yes, it does -- you don't have to worry about it.

    Just to clarify, apps are installed to system memory. If, for example, you download an APK via the browser then it will be saved on the SD card.
