    Hi,

    Can I delete all files in:

    MyFiles/DeviceStorage/Emulated/0/.thumbnails

    Without deleting/compromising the pictures that I assume are located on the external storage?
    I need sone diskspace.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to AC! Press "Thanks!" if I helped you!
    Emulated/0 are files on your internal storage.
    Emulated/extSdcard/ are files on your external storage.

    Do you know what"thumbnails" means? Does it mean I have the photos somewhere else in large file size?

    On your file manager you should be seeing this.
    Click on Images and you'll see all of your pictures.
    Best regards,Mikey. I hope you found what you were looking for.

    Thanks Mikey. The trouble is that my pictures are both on my device and external storage, in various folders. I thought I knew all the folders but I bumped into this folder with thumbnails. So now I wonder how this thumbnail folder got created. I didn't do it. Would you or anyone know how that might have worked?

    The thumbnails are smaller versions of your photos wich are represented in any picture chooser. For example when you choose to post a pic to Facebook it doesn't show you the whole image,just it's thumbnail. Better not erase them.
