    Hi folks,

    I’m curious about the automatically created .wallpapers folder in media/internal/ of my 2.1.1 Veer. It contains duplicates of some of the pics in wallpapers, and also a thumb folder, with their thumbnail version.

    For what purpose is this created?

    Thanks and cheers, especially to all ye homebrewers and developers!

    this is a hidden directory that webOS uses to maintain your wallpapers. every time you change your wallpaper, it copies the file (and a smaller thumbnail version) to this directory. So, you can feel free to actually delete the files in here if you need to clean up some space, although note that is will also delete your current wallpaper. So, once you reboot your device you will need to re-select your wallpaper again

    Thanks. As it’s the only »extra« folder with samll size, I don’t bother about cleaning up this small amount of HD space.

    I was just curious why there are so many files in there, as the one active BG image would be enough …

    That would be careless programming. If you use any of my apps like Slide RSS, Slide Master or Wall Switch, anytime you set a new wallpaper, my app will delete the old wallpaper. If you have a bunch of files in that .wallpapers folder, it's because the app you are using to change your wallpaper is just setting the new wallpaper without bothering to remove the old wallpaper.

    Hmmm … using the systems wallpaper functionality and Music Player Remix, so it must be the OS’s fault. Or maybe Internalz?
