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?

Re: Misc Andriod folder on alph unit waste of space?

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.
