    Pretty sure apk's are downloaded to internal memory, not onto the sd card. However, there are apps you can download from the market that allow you to move them to your sd after you've dl'd them.

    All downloaded apps from the Market in in the /data/app folder.

    MistaWolfe, when I looked in that folder, the only thing I saw was information on a few of the paid apps I have. Even then, not ALL paid apps were there :/

    *edit - looked again and my paid apps are not in the sdcard-ext/.android_secure folder. Sorry for the misinformation.

    Apps you install go to one of two places. If you install to the phones internal memory, they go into /data/app as apks. You will need a root explorer that shows hidden files to see these. Apps installed to the sd card do indeed go into /sdcard-ext/.android_secure, but the OS installs them as secure files, so they are not apks, they are asec files. You can easily see these by plugging your phone into a PC and looking at the sd card on your PC and looking in .android_secure

    You can also download super manager or appinstaller or a bunch more from the market that will back up all your apks to the sd card
