Misc Andriod folder on alph unit waste of space?

Just noticed that the OS copies the Pictures, Downloads, Video, DCIM folders to the misc/android folder on the alpha unit.  That is alot of wasted space.

 

anyone else seeing this or just me?

There is no space wasted.

The files you see are in folders which are symbolic links to the existing non-Android folders. There is no actual duplication, only apparent duplication. This is by design. You're not actually losing any flash storage space as a result of it.
