Where are images stored on Android? What is the DCIM thumbnails folder?

It is convenient to store pictures on your phone,but with time it becomes harder and harder to clean up. Moreover, it isn't always very clear where the images are stored. Worst of all, whole photo albums might disappear with an unintentional swipe. That’s why it is important to know where the media files are stored.

In this article we will describe:

  1. Where images are stored on Android
  2. The DCIM folder
  3. Where screenshots are saved on Android
  4. What a thumbnails folder is for
  5. Where thumbnails files are stored
  6. How to delete the thumbnail cache
  7. What to do if the DCIM folder is empty

Where are pictures stored on Android?

Photos taken on Camera (the standard Android app) are stored on either a memory card or in phone memory depending on the settings of the phone.

The location of photos is always the same - it’s the DCIM/Camera folder. The full path looks like this: 

  • /storage/emmc/DCIM - if the images are on the phone memory.
  • /storage/sdcard0/DCIM - if they are on memory card.

How do you get to these folders fast? You need to install a file manager like ES Explorer or Total Commander since the built-in tools of the mobile OS are not very convenient and have limited abilities to work in files and folders. 

The DCIM Folder

DCIM stands for Digital Camera Images. This name is  standard for digital cameras.

iOS and Android devices support DCF (Design rule for Camera File System);  the name DCIM is accepted within the framework of DCF. Desktop and mobile apps can easily open this folder. 

Where screenshots are saved on Android phone

Screenshots taken in the usual way (i.e. by pressing hardware buttons) are saved in the Pictures/Screenshot (or DCIM/Screenshot) folder. If you install a third party Screenshot app on Android OS, you need to check the screenshot location in the Settings.

Why we need a thumbnails folder

As the name suggestions, in this folder you can find thumbnails - smaller versions of pictures and downloaded images, for example, contact photos from Whatsapp or Skype. Thumbnails help a smartphone to open an image from the Gallery more quickly.

Where thumbnails are stored

Thumbnail files are stored in DCIM folder:

  • /storage/emmc/DCIM/.thumbnails (if only phone memory is used)
  • /storage/sdcard0/DCIM/.thumbnails (if there is an SD card in the phone)

How to delete thumbnails on Android phone

It often happens that thumbnail files “eat up” too much space on a phone, up to a few gigabytes. It is useful and sometimes even necessary to clean out the thumbnails folder. You lose nothing, as all the necessary files will be created again when needed.

You can clean out the files in two ways.

Method 1 (manually):

1. Install a file manager on Android (for example, Solid Explorer Classic).

2. Enable the viewing of hidden files in your phone.

'Show hidden files on Android' settings

3. Go to the thumbnails folder.

4. Delete the Android DCIM thumbnails content by selecting all files.

Select thumbnails to delete from the phone

Method 2 (automatically):

1. Install CCleaner app on Android.

2. Tap the 'Analyze' button.

3. Go to the 'Other Caches' section.

Other caches section

4. In the results tap the checkbox 'Thumbnail Cache' and press 'Clean'.

How to increase phone storage

The DCIM folder is empty  – now what?

This problem occurs when you connect your phone to a PC through a USB cable. The DCIM folder is empty while the pictures can still be displayed through Gallery

  1. You need to check both locations - on the memory card and on the Android-device memory. (You may need to drag files from one DCIM folder to the other.)
  2. Then delete cache from External Storage and Media Storage app.

Clearing the Cache

1. Settings > Apps > Tap three dots on top right.

2. Show system apps > Go to 'External Storage' and 'Media storage'.

'Show system apps' settings

3. Tap 'Clear data' and 'Clear cache' buttons.

4. Reboot the mobile phone.

FAQ

Why is the folder called DCIM?

The abbreviation DCIM stands for Digital Camera Images. For digital cameras this name is a kind of standard.

iOS and Android devices support the DCF specification, within which the DCIM name is adopted. Therefore desktop and mobile apps open this folder with no problems.

I accidentally deleted photos from the Camera folder to make space. I chose the DCIM folder as the one to erase by accident too. Is it possible to recover the photos? It happened 5 days ago.

Thumbnails from the DCIM folder can be recovered even without root access, but it's required if you want to retrieve the original photos. We've already discussed such cases here and we recommend you to go through the cases of other users.

I have a Samsung Galaxy j5 smartphone and all my photos and videos went missing. I looked for them in the DCIM folder but found nothing when the memory of the phone is still occupied.

See the general recovery tips we've given in this article. Also consider checking other spaces (such as Samsung Cloud, Google Photos or Dropbox) for any backup copies.

I've transferred the photos from my phone to a SD card but instead of them I see a triangle with an exclamation mark. The photos stored in the DCIM camera folder are of poor quality and resolution.

Your files got lost during the transferring process. This often happens when cut-and-paste is used instead of copying and deleting. Your way out of this situation is to try to recover the photos from your phone memory and here you can find the best software for this purpose.

After restarting a device, its SD card was damaged; all the photos/videos stored on it were lost.The memory card has to be checked for reading errors. Here is the manual on how to do it. If you can't fix the storage drive, give a try to recovering the photos and videos via PhotoRec software. In order to do it, connect the SD card via a card reader to a PC.


After I take a picture I used to put it on autocorrect and it would send it to DCIM folder which was thin located in my gallery when I scrolled down but it is not there anymore and I cannot find my DCIM folder. Where are my photos? I've already gone through your instructions and do not understand a word they're saying. I want my DCIM folder back because the pictures look better.


I have a Samsung galaxy j5 and some saved images on my phone went missing. I went through my files and DCIM folder but found nothing, although no additional free memory appeared. I receive Android notifications saying that I need to free up some memory. What should I do?


I transferred photos from my phone to its memory card, but they disappeared and instead of them there is a triangle with an exclamation mark… I found the photos (on your advice) in DCIM camera folder, but their quality leaves much to be desired (the focus is completely gone!).


I transferred the photos from my phone memory to its sd card. I made it via a stationary computer by connecting the phone through a USB port. I have access to Android Gallery and photos are stored in DCIM/Camera folder. But there is no access to the photos and videos from Viber and WhatsApp.


Please help me to recover the files from my phone. When I connect it to my computer, the photos stored in DCIM folder (internal memory) can't be viewed, although there are no problems with it when viewing them via the phone. I wanted to transfer them to the computer. As a result, I've done something wrong. Now all the photos in this folder are in the form of a gray square with an exclamation mark. When I try to open them, the cursor hangs and starts spinning and then I receive a notification saying that the format isn't supported. I have no clue how but two DCIM folders merged and then were replaced. As a result, there is some free space in the internal memory of the phone. In such case is it possible to retrieve photos and videos from that folder and if yes, than how?

IMPORTANT Step ALL Samsung Galaxy Smartphone Owners Need To Take ASAP (Note 20, S20, S10, A71, etc)

How to easily save your Samsung Cloud photos and videos before it's too late

(Pocket-lint) - Samsung announced earlier this year that it is killing some features in Samsung Cloud, including Drive Storage and Gallery Sync. That means you won't be able to sync your files and images to the cloud, and any existing files you’ve backed up will be deleted.

We suspect Samsung is removing the option to back up your photo gallery to Samsung Cloud to cut storage costs, but the company still plans to continue storing data such as contacts, calendar entries, and notes. Photos and videos will no longer be supported. So, if you were using Samsung Cloud to store all your data before, you may want to find an alternative, such as Microsoft OneDrive. In fact, Samsung makes it really easy to switch to OneDrive.

If you don't use OneDrive, you have other options. Bear in mind the cut-off deadline is coming. You could lose photos if you don’t already have copies saved.

When is Samsung Cloud's cut-off date for downloading photos and videos?

Samsung has put different countries, including the US and UK, into two groups with different deadlines. It's not easy to determine your group, so it's safe to assume you’re in Group 1, which must download any photos and videos from Samsung Cloud by 30 September 2021. Group 2 has until 30 November 2021.

Note:You can try to determine which group you're in here.

How to download your photos and videos from Samsung Cloud before it's too late

Mobile device method

The easiest way is from your phone. Just follow the steps below, but note that steps may vary from device to device, unfortunately.

  1. Open your phone’s main Settings menu.
  2. Select Accounts and backup.
  3. Scroll down until you see: Looking for something else?
  4. Select the Samsung Cloud link.
  5. You’ll be presented with an option to download your data.

Desktop method

If you don't have enough storage available on your phone or don’t want to create duplicates, use the desktop method instead.

  1. Visit the Samsung Cloud website.
  2. Log in and click on Gallery.
  3. You’ll see the option to download any images.
    • Weirdly, you can’t preview the images before you download them.
    • If you have several gigabytes of data stored, you will see smaller download files.

How to easily move your Samsung Cloud photos and videos to Microsoft OneDrive

Those of you who own a Samsung device may have already seen a notification asking you to migrate to OneDrive. Samsung launched this migration in October 2020, allowing you to easily transfer all your Samsung Cloud data to OneDrive and delete it from Samsung Cloud. Microsoft was even offering the same amount of storage you already have in Samsung Cloud for free for a year. If you haven't seen this notification, no worries. Just follow the steps below.

  1. Open Samsung Cloud.
  2. Select the three-dot menu at the top-right.
  3. Tap Download My Data.
  4. Tap Next.
  5. Select Move To OneDrive
  6. Tap Confirm.
  7. All your images, videos, and files will automatically move to OneDrive.
    • This could take a lot of time depending on the amount of data.

Note: If these steps vary for you, visit Microsoft's support page here.

Pocket-lint

Don’t want to move to Microsoft OneDrive and prefer another storage service?

If you don't use OneDrive, there are various apps available that you can use to backup Samsung Cloud data you've downloaded to your device. These apps usually only offer a certain amount of free storage, however, so look into that before you incur charges related to syncing all your media.

For example, you can use Google Photos to store photos and videos you've downloaded to your phone. Just use the Activate Backup and sync option in Google Photos. Samsung offers a support page that details the steps. You can also try Dropbox. Samsung has a support page for Dropbox too.
