    I moved all my pictures from the internal storage to my sd card. Still, when I check on Storage, it shows that 69mb of pictures/videos are still there, as the picture shows:

    The amount of data also gets bigger with time, but i can't say how fast.
    Do these pictures/videos belong to the system, or could I somehow find them and delete them? I've already tried this via PC as well, but there were no pictures/videos to be found.
    Thanks for the replies!

    Welcome to Android Central! It's probably due to thumbnails that the system generates for apps and websites--there's nothing you can do to prevent that from happening. 69 MB is pretty small--if you have lots of photos stored on your phone, the thumbnails that are generated can get up to 500 MB or more.

    Thank you for the accurate answer!
    After moving all the photos shortly to the computer, it got around 2 MB free.

    I also found a lot of JPGs inside of Android/Data/com.google.android.apps.docs/files/pinned_docs_Files_do_not_edit/, but I couldn't open any of them. I don't think they are important, because their names were the same as some deleted pictures i had in google drive. After deleting these files the whole rest of the MB are gone.
