Hi all,

I have downloaded fifa 12 and after realising that it don't work, I immediately proceed to uninstalling it.

The problem is fifa 12 downloaded an additional resource of appx 1.2gb. And removing the app doesnt remove this 1.2gb.

How do I remove an app entirely... else I think I wasted a lot of storage spaces.

how did you uninstall it? i'm assuming if you just uninstall via the Play Store or Settings, then reboot, the files would disappear.

If the game put its files where it should they are deleted automatically when you uninstall.

A Filemanager is one way but often there is a much easier way with ICS:
Identify the orphaned files/folder via Settings > Storage. Most of the time you can just delete the unwanted files right from this menu or at least get the location of the files to delete them with a file explorer.

This is a great non-bloated file manager. Free and open source.
