    Happy New Year All!

    Having just completed a back-up of the ol' trusty playbook, I decided to look around using desktop manager (I think ).
    Plugged in PB into the desktop and normal mapping to drive Z got done and folders for camera, documents, photos, etc... all there as normal. The folder "misc" was there as normal. I clicked on it just to see what was there and and an "android" and "caustic" folder appeared as normal. I do have caustic on my PB and figured android was for the android runtime-emulator. Right clicked on properties size and here is where the surprise came!! It was almost 6GB in size!! Dadgum!! My trusty PB is a 16 GB so space can be at a premium from time to time. I went in to take a look and what really surprised me was another "set" of my photos, music etc...

    I know well enough to not go deleting where I am not totally sure what the result will be, but when space is limited it merits taking a look at.
    Does anyone happen to know if this is the normal file path structure our PB's use. As I stated before, I didn't delete anything so this is more curiosity-investigation. Thanks for any insight and again, Happy and Prosperous New Year to All!!

    I think they are pointers for Android and not actual files taking up space. Kind of like windows jump lists?

    Its normal and those files are not taking up space. The are sym-links to the actual files, but Windows doesn't know how to classify them.
