    I was cleaning my sdcard today and found a folder called txjjtds i normally would just move on but i looked at the size of it and it is 304mbs and says it was last edited yesterday. Anyone know what exactly this is and if i can delete it because it would give me a lot of space thanks for any help

    I don't know what it is, but I can tell you I don't have it on my SD...out of curiousity what is in it, or if it is unopenable what kind of extension does it have on it

    Inside of it there are 22 folders with dates that go back to march 18th of this year. In each folder there are then any where from 10 to over 200 files, all with the extension file ha well i guess i'll just drop it to my desktop in case i do need it for something and delete it from my sdcard and see if i get anything weird.

    Apps are pretty haphazard about where and what they store. Kind of annoying that they aren't restricted to using particular directories named the same thing as the app, at least. In any case, some app you downloaded probably decided to cache a ton of stuff and didn't clean up when you removed the app (or you may still have the app).

    Maybe a wallpaper or ringtone downloading app? Perhaps something with video or audio streaming?

    Deleting it should be fine - but then go through and run all your apps again to see which one regenerates it again if you're curious.

    Just to make everyone a little paranoid about what Google and Verizon are up to; I was cleaning my SD card the other day and came across a folder that seemed out of place. I opened it up and there was a thumbnail cache, no file having any extensions I've ever seen, of every picture I have EVER taken, every picture I have EVER downloaded, and lots that I couldn't open to see what data they contained. This file was persistant from the day I turned on my phone because it was on my SD card unnoticed. It survived new roms, SD card cleanings too. I copied it off when I formatted and unintentionally put it back when I restored my SD folders. There were several copies of each file with different names. Deleting the original photo and clearing the thumbnail cache does not remove this collection. Anyone wanna guess what it's for? It's no use to any of my apps and I didn't make it. It comes back if you delete it but only with current thumbs and anything I download of photograph.
