    Hi!

    I downloaded a picture that I do not want to leave any traces on my phone by accident :D Yes, it was what you're most likely thinking of haha and I don't want my girlfriend to find it...

    Using a browser, the photo downloaded instead of just viewing it.

    So, I deleted the image file which was a .jpg from the 'downloaded' folder related to the browser.
    But, then I went into gallery and it was still there listed. After clicking it, it took me to a void picture (because I deleted it). So, I then removed it from the gallery too.

    Next I found there was still an image of it in the 'DCIM' folder, small and like an icon- I deleted it.


    HOW MANY MORE PLACES DOES THIS PHONE COPY THINGS!!??

    What's the best way to remove it and find other traces?

    7 or 8,
    and the POS creates scads of useless folders, and the POS creates images of website banners, newsheadlines etc, and transfers the whole bloody lot to your PC when you "import photos and videos"
