    The iPod Photo Cache folder keeps getting created inside subfolders where it makes no sense, and I am looking for a way to correct this.

    Here is the folder structure.

    I have a Pictures folder.
    Inside are many subfolders.
    2 of these subfolders are named iPhone & iPad
    via iTunes, my iPhone is set to sync photos inside the iPhone folder
    via iTunes, my iPad is set to sync photos inside the iPad folder
    the iPhone & iPad folders both have the iPod Photo Cache folder inside them, which is correct; the folder should be there.

    However, other subfolders inside my Pictures folders (including the root) keep getting the iPod Photo Cache folder created; not all subfolders get it, just some. No iOS devices sync to these subfolders, so the Cache folder should not be appearing inside them.

    No matter how many times I delete the thing, it keeps coming back.

    I don't know what is causing this. Any ideas?

    Everytime you sync your phone/ipad, this folder is created. The solution that is posted here will work, but not if you change what albums or events are synced.
