Deleting thumbnails from /root/thumbnails directory


I am running Redhat 9.

I have old thumbnails in my /root/thumbnails/passed subfolder. I have logged in as root and moved them to trash, but they reappear in the subfolder.

I've also cut them and pasted them into trash, to no avail. They show up in trash alright, and even the list of files in the "passed" subfolder seems to go down. I empty trash, reboot, and they reappear.

If its a system quirk, how do I fix it? If it's an application "history" problem, how can I change the history settings? None of the apps seem to have history settings.

Thanks,

Moxieman99

(As root of course) Try in a terminal:

Code:
rm -rf /root/thumbnails/passed
But be very very careful with the rm -rf command. Type that in EXACTLY. If you make a typo you can delete everything on your system. (not to scare you, and I apologise if you know that already )

If I knew the dangers and all the commands, I wouldn't be a newbie!

Thanks.
