so I was jokin around with my friend at a bar and we started looking up naughty pictures with a free pron program that I found on the market. We were comparing the people in the bar to the people in the photos and we found some hilarious matches. Anyway, that was last Thursday. Now I see that the pictures that were pulled up on my phone are now easily viewable by merely trying to attach a picture to a text message or an email. Basically, if anyone looks at my phone and tries to see my pictures or something they will see these stupid pictures. The phone says these pictures are saved in the SD Card Cache. How can I clear this cache? I've unmounted the card, twice. No go. I've uninstalled the horrible program (it was free and you get what you pay for, I guess). I needs me some help! I've been perusing the interwebs looking for help and this forum seemed like the most active place right now.
how to access sd card and clear cache. I am having a problem were I open e-mail w/ attachment and then it ask's if I want to save to the sd card. So I do and now I can not find the attachment, or when I open it it just prompts to save gain.Thank you for any help.
We've had our desire's for a few weeks now and was just wondering what the phones performance is like for you guys/gals? you've all put on apps that you want and music and videos etc., has this affected the phone in anyway? Does it still run like it did out of the box or do you experience lag or other faults? Interested what you have to say.
The only gripe that I have is it is sometimes slow to access the market and takes a few seconds to load the page when scrolling down and I've got a stutter when I access an app to read reviews. Other than that it still runs smooth, I've got music, videos, apps, widgets and voice to text on mine and is easily the best phone I've ever had. Has anybody got a cache cleaner app, I can only find one for rooted phones?
I have a couple apps I have noticed when I open a file it must cache the file internally, but gives me no way to clear. For example Zumodrive and repligo reader both will show 20+mb in my settings, but clear cache is greyed out and shows 0mb. However when I delete these apps and reinstall them, I get all that internal memory back. I am running a rooted Nexus One.
I searched and found many posts regarding clearing cache. But didn't find this answer. Is there a way to clear cache on all apps at once? I went through the settings/applications/manage apps, and checked and cleared cache on many, but this is real tedious, but seemed to give great results. Phone feels much faster. (NOT ROOTED) Psychological? Dunno, but question still stands, does anyone know an easy way to do this? Additionally, is there any risk of clearing cache from any apps?
Screen mirroring broke on my note 2 with the 4.3 update.
I've read one possible fix was to clear the cache partition (?) But have no idea on a non rooted phone how you would accomplish this. The other alternative is a factory reset but I would need to figure out how to back up my accounts/data to do that.
Using the widget to read stories is draining the memory down on me, has anyone found a way to clear the cache for it? clearing the browser cache doesn't do it, and I have 5mb that's gone from reading the stories.
Browser seems to chew up memory pretty well, which is usually okay, but it would be good to be able to clear it. Well if you long press on the back button you get an option to exit and clear cache. Neat. Any other apps do this?
I was rooted and not thinking about using the cache clear app I did it using the recovery menu in the phone. Now I can't see to be able to rename .apk files on the phone. It says the file system is read-only. I have tried remounting the filesystem several times and i can't.
I have set of images fetched from internet and set it on gridview,here i have option to click here to view more,below the grid view and it fetches images and set it on grid with prevoius set of images,when i exit the application and run it again,the previous set of images remain in cache and grid shows images from cache,here i need to clear my application cache memory,when i exited my application.how can i get it.
I just switched my contacts from Outlook to Gmail. No problem in doing that. I left the outlook contacts on the phone (just in case), but switched the View item in people to only show the gmail contacts. Whenever I make or receive a call now, the caller ID lookup always tells me I'm calling or receiving a call from one particular user, who is not the caller/callee. Clearly I need to clear a lookup cache, but which one? There are the following caches/data that might need to be cleared: Contacts Storage, Gmail Storage, People.
In Android's settings, in the "Manage Applications" activity when clicking on an app, the data is broken down into Application, Data, and cache. There is also a button to clear the cache. My app caches audio files and I would like the user to be able to clear the cache using this button. How do I store them so they get lumped in with the cache and the user can clear them?
I've got an app that is heavily based on remote images. They are usually displayed alongside some data in a ListView. A lot of these images are new, and a lot of the old ones will never be seen again.
I'm currently storing all of these images on the SD card in a custom cache directory (ala evancharlton's magnatune app).
I noticed that after about 10 days, the directory totals ~30MB. This is quite a bit more than I expected, and it leads me to believe that I need to come up with a good solution for cleaning out old files... and I just can't think of a great one. Maybe you can help. These are the ideas that I've had:
Delete old files. When the app starts, start a background thread, and delete all files older than X days. This seems to pose a problem, though, in that, if the user actively uses the app, this could make the device sluggish if there are hundreds of files to delete. After creating the files on the SD card, call new File("/path/to/file").deleteOnExit(); This will cause all files to be deleted when the VM exits (I don't even know if this method works on Android). This is acceptable, because, even though the files need to be cached for the session, they don't need to be cached for the next session. It seems like this will also slow the device down if there are a lot of files to be deleted when the VM exits. Delete old files, up to a max number of files. Same as #1, but only delete N number of files at a time. I don't really like this idea, and if the user was very active, it may never be able to catch up and keep the cache directory clean.
I need to directly read/write a file on sd card without cache. I can use "posix_fadvise" to achieve the purpose on Ubuntu I try NDK to make the function call, but it seems disabled on Android How can I do?
But I am afraid to delete something that might hurt my phone. I flashed some pics with ShootMe of my sd contents. If anyone can spare a moment, please take a look and tell me if you spot anything that I can get rid of safely
