    I have a cheap LG Android device and I notice that when I use the device to send an email and attach a file that is inside the Android device, when I use the supplied file manager to browse for the file I want to attach, I am able to see files that I have previously deleted. My question is: why can I see previously deleted files and how long do these files stay inside the Android device?

    They are deleted. I experienced it to. Apparently the file manager isn't refreshing, or is keeping a list of previous available files. Choosing them will give you a file missing error.
