    Surprise, Maverick uses up for the map cache only 10 MB,
    but really big with 80 MB is

    DCIM/.thumbdata3--1967290299

    I think this is created by your photos and videos on your phone. It's basically the thumb icons (the ones seen while browsng in the Gallery) I believe. I take it you have quite a few pics videos etc on your phone? :)

    Only 21 photos and ond video in folder DCIM/Camera

    But I have copied my web site on the phone, to have it always ready to show certain pages to people in discussions.

    I did not have counted the photos on my web site,
    but windows information shows 17063 files in 768 folders.

    Maybe this is the reason why Maverick names pictures
    in the cache

    *.jpg.tile
    *.png.tile

    The added ".tile" prevents that all the map parts are indexed as photos.
