Default files app is showing many files (mostly photos) that don't exist anymore. How to clean it up?
All of these files existed under
/sdcard and were cleaned via synchronization with my PC over ssh. I don't keep my old photos on my phone, and most of the rest was just junk.
(Yes the files really don't exist. If I tap them it just spins. It's like the files app can't handle the file not being there.)
I've operated this way for a long time, but it's glitched out now.
This is an rooted essential PH-1 phone; firmware is from this year. Note that rooted PH-1 phones run patched firmware.
