I have 2 Mi note 4g's and both of them have the same problem. I have also given access to all permissions in settings(though there is no permission for SD card). All the photos outside the SD card can be deleted all right.

This is the error message


Your issue is you haven't allow SD card access from the app itself:

  1. Hamburger menu (Three dots) in the upper right.
  2. Settings
  3. SD Card Access


  • The problem is as is in Google help it is said this method works for Android 5 up only. My phone is Android 4.4. – Karrmanyaah Malhotra Feb 18 '18 at 11:37
