what happens when my .'..userdata/thumbnails' folder fills up the flash drive? will it spill over elsewhere, or can i somehow change the path of the userdata folder onto my media storage drive, where space is not an issue?

thank you in advance!

Yes you can. Assuming both are mounted:

Code:
# turn off XBMC before doing this
$ mv /home/xbmc/.xbmc /mediaStorageMount/

# make a link to the folder
$ ln -s /home/xbmc/.xbmc /mediaStorageMount/.xbmc

Replace "mediaStorageMount" with the path to the mount point for the media storage drive.
