Images in /home/nemo/.cache/org.nemomobile/thumbnails filling up phone.. and keeping erased photos thumbnails

Hi Sailors!

My phone (XA2 4.4) memory was getting full.
Then i noticed that erasing the thumbnails freed about 6GB of memory!
in /home/nemo/.cache/org.nemomobile/thumnails are a loooot of pictures from either sailfish apps (fernschreiber) either thumbnails of photos taken and later erased.
Keeping those photos is an issue with storage and privacy.

I wonder if jolla would consider cleaning this cache for exemple during each upgrade?

I’m wondering whether that folder can be moved to (external) SD card an create a symbolic link to the new location. It’ ~1GB on my XA2+

As @jollajo wondered, you can move the thumbnails folder to the sd card, and create a symlink, just remember to add the .trackerignore file to the folder after the move, otherwise the thumbnails will be added to the gallery.

Or better yet, add .trackerignore before moving the folder, otherwise tracker can begin tracking the folder before you add the file.
