How to delete Gallery Thumbnails on Nexus 7


I often transfer the photos from my Nexus 7 to the PC computer, and then delete them from the tablet. But I notes that the thumbnails remain in the Gallery app. They are black with no photo and the N7 keeps warning the space is getting filled.

How to delete Gallery Thumbnails on Nexus 7
* Go to Settings 》 Apps, and tap on the gallery app. Tap "force close" and then "clear data". Go to restart the gallery and all thumbnails from images that do not exist are gone. Works for me.
* Use Astro file manager to clear thumbnail cache. Delete "com.cooliris.media" directory.
