    i had some trouble (still have, if wondering what, here's my post about it: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...tap-shoot.html )

    and i had moved the apps/games i wanted to keep to my sd card.
    now i have hard reset my device, and when i go to <<storage sense>> and then <<sd card>>
    its under <<other>> (some 6.54gb)

    when i set <<store new apps on my sd card>> the phone says it will overwrite the apps of the other phone.

    now is my question. how do i get those apps back? on the phone?
    any ideas?

    i heard something about the store and using the <<install local apps>> but it isnt showing in my store.

    thanks in advance :)

    the apps on your card are garbage, the pointers from ROM to those are trashed (w Hard Reset).
    - Move any other detected data (docs, music, pictures, videos, etc) to your phone
    - then format the SDCard on your device.
    - Move all the data back to the card
    - then you can start w apps.

    - uncheck Store New apps on SDCard
    - when you signin, the apps will start installing (from your backup)
    - after they all install
    - move whatever apps you want to your SDCard (Storage Sense)

    This is the most effective method to accomplish this (formatting the SDCard is tangent to recovering space). You'll probably re-install whatever camera app you referenced.
