When disk costs fractions of pennies, is that amount of space even a

duplicating a lot of thumbnails.

Backed up storage isn't nearly as cheap as throw away storage. Disk bandwidth
has not been keeping up with disk size. It isn't getting cheaper to back up
disk space at nearly the rate that plain disk space has.

Use gconf-editor to set:

in days

in MB

The default is 180 days and 512 MB. However, fspot overwrites these default to much larger values if present.

This is a feature of gnome-settings-daemon (the "housekeeping" plugin). The purge should occur a few minutes after each log-on.
