Insufficient memory caused by thumbnails of PWWebMaps

Postby raylac5833 » Mon Apr 11, 2016 5:50 am

Hello,
Thumbnails of PWWebMaps causes a lack of space in the internal memory SdCard0.
Do you have any other solutions to what I'm doing now ?

Environment:
Samsung Galaxy Camera Device
Internal Memory: 4GB
External Memory: 64GB
Android v4.1
PathAway Pro v6.02
PWWebMaps on ExtSdcard (see that topic in the forum)

Problem

I keep several PWWebMaps by region saved on the ExtSdCard. When I change a region, I delete /SdCard0/PathAway
and /ExtSdCard/PWWebMaps and I restore in the same place from another region.

Android does not remove the thumbnails of a map stored in /SdCard0/DCIM/.Thumbnails/ when I delete the JPG'pictures PWWebMaps.
It follows that the internal memory grows every time I change region. After using PathAway for 2 years, the .thumbnails file contained 55 000 entries and caused on my device the message «Insuffisiant Memory Space».

Solution-1
I had to make a factory reset and reinstall all applications from Google Play Store.

Solution-2
Now I monitor the space in the Thumbnails folder of internal memory and I delete that folder using tools
as File Manager or Glary Utility.

Your solution-
Do you have any other solutions to offer ?

Suggestion for later version :

PathAway currently processing JPG pictures. PathAway could deal with PWP pictures (for PathWway Picture) ?
A PWP is a JPG picture file with the suffix changed for PWP.
So, Android would be unable to create thumbnails pictures, then none storage problem in /SdCard0/DCIM/.Thumbnails.

Thank you for your support.
