    I recently installed an app. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of where I could find the directory on my blackberry where the files for that app are saved. I tried looking through the explorer on the handset itself as well as opening it from my desktop.

    What type of files are you looking for? The app's installation files are found under Device > Application Management. However if the app stores information, that could be in a folder anywhere in the device memory, or on your SD card.
    Make sure you've selected 'show hidden' if you're using the Files App to search for them.

    I'm looking for config files. Are they not in a centralized place? And I do have show hidden on. I stumbled upon a couple of applications directories but only a handful and not the one I was looking for on the SD card. Is there no way to check the path of an application's installation on the handset?

    BlackBerry apps don't use config files. What's the name of the app, and what exactly are you looking for?

    Sorry, I don't have that game so can't help. Try asking in the Games Forum, or emailing the dev.

    Ok. Thanks anyway. Also, if I found out which module name it's under would that have anything to do with where it was stored?

    All the modules will be listed under Options > Device > Application Management > Final Fantasy (or whatever the game is called).
    Just click on that and scroll down to see them.

    Apps can store data in a file on micro SD card, in a file on device memory, or as a persistent object.

    If last one is used to store data, you are not able to find or copy it.

    Apps with Store/Restore functions usually copy their persistent objects in a file on micro SD card or in the file system on the device.
