Unnecessary files on the Droid?

    I uploaded about 50 pictures from iPhoto (using a Mac) just to see what they looked like and then later formatted the Droid's SD card, so the pictures were no longer there.

    Now, if I mount the Droid via USB and view the file structure there is a folder named /albumthumbs which contains 50 files, presumably for the 50 pictures a had on the SD card.

    To me, these file, unless linking to actual photos stored on the SD card, take up extra space in the phone's memory (not worried about the SD card). I wonder if I can safely delete them (just the files...not the folder)? I would think so.

    Nice answer :) I'll wait for someone to reply who's maybe tried it already. I don't feel like rebuilding my Droid right now if something goes wrong <g>.
