Hi folks,
A few days ago I was surprised to see my "internal" sdcard space filling up, and found two files in the .thumbnails folder under /mnt/sdcard totaling 1.2 GB!
I deleted them immediately but today again there is an 800 MB file there.

I could go on deleting these files, but surely this is a major bug? A quick Google search reveals that this is not just a G300 issue. Does anyone know anything about this? Any solution?

Thanks!

I have the same problem I think it is the super video app that came with s3 rom, you have to change the settings in the app to disable thumbnail caching.

Are you running ,or does the rom run an add free blocking app as that can store a large number of thumb nails on the SD card and after deleting them they reappear.

Definitely not that. I have neither the S3 ROM nor the Super video app

Nope, no ad blocking app either.

When I get the time I'm going to run all my apps one-by-one and see which one is doing this.
I'll report back here with any updates

If you're still looking for a solution, the new folder method described here worked for me.
