This question is similar to Ubuntu keeps creating dummy directories, except it's about the ~/Snapshots directory. I don't have that startup application, and I've moved all of Ubuntu's directories away from there - the only one I can't find is the Snapshots. It's always empty, and seems quite useless.

The only startup applications I have are Google Chrome and the Gnome Gmail Open Office Configurator.

Have you used a backup utility, and/or did a backup of your system? – Mitch Aug 30 '12 at 16:37
No, never. And it's the only thing I can find in Google search results... – configurator Aug 30 '12 at 20:04
Are there any files in the directory? What are they called? – Steve Kroon Aug 31 '12 at 8:11
@SteveKroon, no, it's completely empty. – configurator Aug 31 '12 at 12:09
Any luck in getting to the bottom of this? inotifywait might help here – kolypto Feb 10 '13 at 21:18
