All the time. Seems pretty pointless.
But on my XZ it's size just get increased without reason. Even if the pictures didn't changed...
I the system create them after few time but sometimes the files size get more than usual. Sometimes it's get up to 2GB for every files and that's huge

If you don't want to do that try ES File Explorer

Do that:



And you will see the folders and there sizes... And delete what is taking space

***NOTE*** ENABLE THE "SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS"

Good luck!

Nothing new. If you have tons of photos then tons of thumbnails will be created and they will also take a lot of space.
Trust me. Move all your photos somewhere off your device and then delete your .thumbnails folder. You'll see that it's size won't increase anymore. Pictures don't have to be modified at all. Thumbnails are getting created just if the pictures exist.
