    Using the USB cable with my Nexus 5 connected to Windows 10, I copied all of the files in the Downloads directory to my PC as well as the images in the DCIM/Camera directory. Then I deleted them from the phone.

    Using the File Manger 1.2, the files are gone.

    So what's the issue? You deleted them from the phone and they're gone... that's as expected.

    Are you saying that the copies made to the Win10 PC have also disappeared?

    When I click on the Download APP or the Photos APP they are still there. What have I forgotten to delete?

    Nothing. It's just a history of what you've downloaded. It's just a list. The files aren't there.
