Bug Description

We store the correlation between ALAssets (Camera Roll contents) and the generation of the counterpart Files Node id in a CoreData database that can be deleted. While the other CoreData metadata can be regenerated, if this database is deleted, the app doesn't preemptively ignore previously-uploaded assets.

We should either (or both):

  - Store this relationship DB in a manner that prevents it from being culled in the case of low storage

  - Use HEAD requests on the new upload to prevent re-uploading the same image.

A better solution is just to move this database to the user's Documents folder, since it's a) precious, and b) on-device-created content.
