    Hey everyone,
    I'm new to the forums, i hope that this is the right section for this thread.
    I was an happy lumia 920 user, now I am an happy lumia 930 user (I'm from lumia-land aka Italy :D ), but i was wondering, is there anyway to auto delete the rich capture auxiliary files??
    I really think we would need a button in the camera settings to autodelete auxiliary rich capture files older than XX day(s) or something like that. I mean, everyone usually edits the pictures during the first hours/days, then you save them, then you usually do not need them anymore.

    This would mean: 5megapixel(1MB) +20megapixel (5MB) +richfiles(20MB), then you make use of the rich editing overwriting the 5mpx+20mpx, then you automatically free the 20MB after some time. This is a much needed feature indeed and with this you could leave the rich capture functinality always on!

    What do you think? Is there any better place to ask for this?

    P.s. I know you can delete them one by one on file system but this is not very user friendly.

    I totally agree with you. And also before you know it your OneDrive is also overloaded
    But WC is not Microsoft so we can not do anything about it.

    It is however good that you posted your concern but to get it "changed" I advice you to contact Microsoft.

    Thanks for the link. Actually my onedrive only gets the 20mpx version over Wi-Fi, while the 5mpx is used for sharing over 4G network so OneDrive is not affected by the rich capture files.
