    My google-fu is weak!
    Toying around with my phone, and I kept running out of space on the internal drive. Poking around, and I found one directory which is eating up over 90% of my internal memory. That folder is a series of (random?) numbers.
    Inside the folder is ten directories, each with similar content. Each is named "cbpf00000000000xxxx" where xxxx is a (random?) series of numbers. They are all very similar in time made. Each contains thee files. One with the long series of numbers, on called 'cpbmf' which is a couple of kb is size, and one called 'cpbdf' which is 2-4 gigs in size. Needless to say, this is eating up a huge amount of my memory.

    Is there anyway I can trim these down? Are they some sort of backup that I can delete a few of? I'd love to get the 27 gigs of space back from these. But I'm a little hesitant to delete them out of fear of bricking things.

    Thoughts?

    Can you give us the full path of one of these files? It sounds like it might be cached data for an app or part of a game.

    ...actually, I can't. I backed up, crossed my fingers and deleted the directory. No issues so far...
