Default Disable Android Folders Saving to SD Card

Hi
Phone S4 Android OS latest versio.
By default the following folders are getting created on my SD Card.
Android\Data\
com.google.android.music
com.samsung.music

Is there a way I can stop this. I have deleted the folder many times and it comes back. Just want to see my own files and folders on the SD Card.

Thanks. I am an Android forum Newbee!

programs will create their own folders. usually better if its on the external than the internal storage. I don't mess with it. If it bothers you to have to look through your own folders mixed with program folders, then just create one folder MyStuff and put all your own folders in there.

Hello and welcome tries

The folders you mention :Nope you can't stop it, they are there for a reason though. I believe Android data is a sort of cache folder made by Android when you use your memory card at all either directly or indirectly. (I am quite happy to be proven wrong), the "com" files are added when you put in a memory card into a (Android) phone for the first time and will be re done if deleted. They are there to tell the system the SD card is good to use and there.

Unfortunately you will find an "Android_system secure" folder as well, this is like a "backup" of certain system files.

My advice is ignore them all. You can't just have things you put in your memory card without having Android add flags and data of it's own to "know" it's there and read things from it.
