I think the file got created by some app on your device. You can delete the file by using any file explorer. In the My Files app on Samsung devices you first need to go to its settings, and enable 'Show Hidden Files'. Then the file is visible and you can delete it.

The given answer is correct, I just want to clarify: By pressing Clear data on any app, you're clearing application's data, stored in /data/data/[package.name]. It doesn't contain any images of yours, nor you can access it unless you root your device. Cache also belongs to data, and it's inside /data/data/[package.name]/cache. Your images, on the other side,...

It was most likely an add video from an app. I find weird videos and pictures on my phone all the time and then later find out they go to an app. If you delete it, you will be fine. If it was important (probably not) the google store will re-download it. I don't think you have any reason to get worried about a virus. As a side note, Sarah Markel appeared in ...

You may want to look into some EXIF editors to edit the metadata of those images (specifically the time). I can't name any great editors in particular, but there are plenty of apps and programs available as I looked through. If I find any good ones, I'll be sure to tell you the names of them. Best of luck!

Works also in Total Commander, an otherwise very clever and powerful two pan file manager: long-tab the icon of the first file, in the menu choose SELECT or DESELECT, glide till the other end of the range, tap the last desired icon, and voila!

I found I could multi select pics by touching the first one, holding my finger on the screen, and then dragging across the screen to the last one. They all turn to selected as I pass over them. A bit like selecting text with a mouse on a PC!

This happened to me as well. I am guessing that one of the pictures was corrupt and that causes everything to be corrupt. The way I fixed it was I connected my phone to my computer "as a media device" and copied all of the pictures (in Internal Storage/DCIM/Camera) to my computer to back them up. A few failed to copy (I'm guessing that these are the ones ...

I recieved a notification the next day that photos ...
