Ok, I apologize upfront if this has been addressed (or if it is an obvious answer and I am an idiot). I looked through the forum and was unable to find what I was looking for.

What is the best way to delete comics form the iPad? I can delete them in the YAC app, but the storage space does not get freed up. SO essentially, I get to a point where I have to wipe my iPad to get everything off. Anyone else have this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've been seeing a storage leak too. Even after delete the comics, the free space reported on app Settings tab is larger than on iOS settings.

@phunetik, how much storage is leaked? how are you importing comics? If there is a storage leak in the app you only have to delete the app and reinstall it, you don't really need to wipe your iPad.

@Robson, "the free space reported on app Settings tab is larger than on iOS settings.", the difference should be less than 200Mb, and it is because the way YACReader calculates the free space, it just an aproximation. How much free storage reports iOS is up to Apple.

Yes, Luis!

it's less than 200M:

- 621MB on iOS settings;
- 0.8GB on app settings.

I'm sorry for bother you.

Thank you.

Don't worry at all. Getting feedback is the only way I have for knowing if everything is working fine :)

Well... I essentially have my 64 gb iPad 2 filled with nothing but comics. I import through YAC reader. What I notice is that I can get done with one series (say, Sandman), delete those 75 issues but I am not getting that much free space back. Not a huge deal, but it made me curious. I would hate to have to delete the app every time, as I have so many series on there that I want to read and it takes forever to put the things on there.

It definitely sounds like a bug :(

Are you deleting a lot of comics at once? try doing small delete batches.
