Question [Q] How to 'clean up' apps that didn't install correctly?

Hi,

I'm having a bit of a problem with my RAZR i. Say I try to install a 50MB app on my phone, while I have 540MB of space on my internal storage. It downloads fine; but when it starts installing, I get an error of some description, like 'Insufficient Storage Available'. Now, though, even though the app isn't installed and is therefore no use to me, I now have 490MB of space remaining on my phone storage.

This is starting to become a real problem. I've had a lot of space gobbled by this, and my phone storage is getting really small, even if I uninstall almost all my apps and move everything to the SD. Is there any way I could kind of clean up these uninstalled apps?

Thanks!

Did you try to reboot the phone? Maybe that clears up the space.

Just tried that: it didn't make a difference.

I had the same problem with a huge game (what was 1gb) and it downloaded only 900mb.

I have no idea where to which folder it downloads it, I could only solve it by deleting / moving some other apps, downloading it fully, let it install and then uninstall to get the full space back.

If anyone knows to which temp folder it is downloading that stuff, please let us know
