Exclamation Android Tablet Problem - Corrupted Files

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
The problem is that I have downloaded a few wallpapers from the web.
It goes in a specific folder called downloads that I made up.
So when I get my images and transfer to another folder then delete them.
Ok fine there but when I come back say an hour later.
Well there back in that folder but corrupted. So I delete them again and appears again.
I then delete the entire folder and guess what, the folder with files appear again.
I cant get rid of this darn corrupted folder at all.
Whats up with this darn folder and this is a fresh install.

1. is the tablet rooted?
2. is the folder on the tablet or microsd card?
3. were the wallpaper part of an app or did you download the pictures individually?
4. do you have any type of antivirus or malware app installed
5. what do you mean by a "fresh install"

1. is the tablet rooted? No
2. is the folder on the tablet or microsd card? On a micro card
3. I download the pictures individually
4. do you have any type of antivirus or malware app installed? No
5. what do you mean by a "fresh install" I just format the tab and did a fresh start



Reason a fresh install because I had some corruption before.


Thanks for help...

try taking the card out and put it in the computer and delete it from there.

to make sure they are deleted,

1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
2. Click the View tab.
3. Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.
4. open windows explorer then open the microsd card.
5. there might be a folder called recycle bin or trash. Make sure they are empty. and put the card back into the tablet.

forgot to mention lost. could not remember what the name was on the sd card. just wondering you said you cannot insert the card in your computer, no adapter or don't have a card slot? are you currently using any of the wallpaper at all? when you deleted the folder, did you restart the tablet?

Moved from Macintosh forum since this has nothing to do with Macintosh or Apple products.
