    I go to Cydia --> Manage --> Storage

    Under Private, it says: Photos (0%)

    I have 76mb of photos on my ipod touch, why is this 76mb in the System partition?

    Yes, do you know how I can disable this?

    I just want to know why nobody else is experiencing this problem? The case being as it is, I could only put about 250 mb of pictures (which isn't many since itunes doesn't seem to compress them in any way shape or form when placing them in the iPod) before my system partition filled up, then what would I do? No room to download apps after that..

    using ssh, I can see that my photos are stored in /var/mobile/Media/Photos/Thumbs
    I thought the /var/ was the private (large) partition!? so confused..

    I'd really love to be able to say you've relieved my concern, but how come boss prefs tells me there is only 168m available of 527m on the small partition

    -actually, in addition, I forgot you were referring to the directory I included in that last post. What I'm really trying to understand is, as Kiks52 mentioned, why are all of my photos being stored as wallpapers AND photos? I don't want them stored as wallpapers, or if I did I would like to be able to select which ones

    Thanks
