    Hi every one,

    twlauncher folder in "sdcard/android/data" consumes around 700 mb of total 2gb
    there are many .db files, around 3mb each, named like launcher_1346517506185.db. I also saw that with restart of phone, new .db files are created.
    they r eating up my space & time, makin my life miserabl
    PLZ HELP

    Greetings jyothischali,

    I don't know what device you have, but I think that these files are related to the default Touchwiz launcher for your device. This is what provides your desktop, as well as other functions of your device.

    Unless you know exactly what your doing, and from your post I would guess you may be new to this, I would leave everything alone right now.

    It doesn't take much tinkering to render you device useless.

    Just a word of warning.

    That's an odd behavior though. TW shouldn't be making that many logs.

    You won't see TouchWiz, because its more of a system app. Everything you see, the interface, the notification bar, etc IS touchwiz. The underlying Android OS is modified by Samsung into ToucWiz UI.
