    Default Save image/video thumbnails to external storage card

    How can I save image/video thumbnails to external storage on my android device?

    Although the image and video directories of my galaxy s3 device were respectively set to
    Code:
    storage/exSdCard/DCIM/Camera
    and
    Code:
    storage/exSdCard/DCIM/Video
    it seems that image and video thumbnails are saved to
    Code:
    storage/sdcard0/DCIM/.thumbnails
    by default on the contrary of
    Code:
    storage/exSdCard/DCIM/.thumbnails
    The images and videos are saved to proper locations but their thumbnails are always saved to the system generated default location of internal storage (sdcard0) card in lieu of external storage card (exSdCard).

    The problem wasn't solved even after I moved the camera from system->app to data->app and DCIM folder from internal storage sdcard0 to external storage exSdCard.

    Any idea or resolution?

    Thanks,

    Without rooting your phone I don't think there is a solution - sorry.

    @GSDer, my device is rooted. What could be the possible resolution?

    Take a look at FolderMount: (you'll find a link to his thread on XDA as well, which may be worth reading through).

    Really a great app that serves the purpose perfectly though it refuses to unlink / unpin the pair until I rebooted my device once after installation.

    There are similar apps in the Google Play Store, and probably some that are only on XDA. Hope it works well enough for you.
