I am glad to see that solutions are found to delete the thumbnails whenever it becomes necessary. Hopefully there is more practical solution coming up in the future.

w_whalley's comment about the 18kB for the thumbnail made me thinking that the thumbnail size is only important when files are small. This means a 36 kB total file size contains 50% for the thumbnail,. But for a 180 kB it would only be 10 %.

Out of curiosity, I searched my data drice for odt-files to see what could be an effect on required HDD capacitiy and found - a bit to my surprise - a large amount of odt-files with a size far below 18kB. ( I don't take w_whalleys's 18 KB as an absolute value but as an approximate value).

What is the reason for the many small odt-files I have on my machine?
