    I have an weird issue with my HTC one mini 2. I have two very large files in my DCIM/.thumbnails folder. I have encountered this problem before in other devices, and my understanding is that the files can be deleted and the space freed, but they will then be recreated. However, when I delete the files in my phone, they disappear, but the space is not freed. They are eventually recreated. What is even weirder is that:

    the total available internal storage of my phone is 10.83 GBs

    the total size of all files excluding the 2 .thumbnails files(hidden files included) is 5.02 GBs

    The total used space is reported to be 10.10 GBs

    But the 2 .thumbnails files are reported to be 10.77 GBs!( one is 5.36 and the other 5.41)

    all the numbers are provided by ES file explorer, some checked through Windows. I have also tryed deleting the files using rm in terminal emulator, but the space issues remain.

    What is going on with my phone?
