    I loaded some wallpapers on my device via USB mass storage, I do not have a sd memory card. So I saved them on E:

    I wanted to get rid of all the files I loaded on device and start clean so I did a master reset of device, and still when I connect thru USB mass storage and mount device the files are all still there?

    I thought master reset deleted everything you had on device?

    Master reset only clears the 2GB partition used for the Rom. The rest of your 16GB internal memory (14GB) are for your storage and aren't affected by master reset.

    To clear this, from the home screen, go to Menu, Settings, SD card and phone storage - under Internal Storage select Unmount SD Card and then select Format SD Card to wipe it.
