    What happens if i clear Gallery cache?

    Hi, i'm just wondering if it's ok to clear the Gallery cache just to save some space..
    I noticed that my tab2 is almost out of memory, so I checked the storage settings to see which app is taking most of the space.
    Then I noticed that one of those apps include the Gallery, and I saw its Cache already piled up to 200mb,
    and I'm already tempted to click that 'Clear Cache' button to gain more space.
    But I'm not sure if it's safe to do so because I'm afraid that it might do some damage/changes to my data (like videos&photos)..
    So I want to be sure if it's ok to take that risk (if it's a risk at all) and clear that massive cache...
    many thanks to those who'd reply

    Welcome to the forum

    The good news, you can clear the cache and even the data and it won';t hurt anything at all. The bad news is that much of it will get rebuilt based on the media you have on your tablet. The Gallery is really made up almost entirely of cache and what you see in the Gallery is really stored somewhere else on the tablet. You are only seeing what is really thumbnails cache of the media.

    In the whole scheme of things the space you save will only be temporary. You need to find the actual data that's taking the other space. In comparison 200MB is peanuts.
