    Re: Why some folders exit SD card automatically in android?

    Some of the folders are automatically created by the phone programs. For example, there is a folder named ‘DCIM’ in File Manager which is a default folder for saving photos and other android default media. Now when you take some photos with the camera of the android phone, you can see a sub-folder named ‘Camera’ under ‘DCIM’. It has to be noted that this kind of folder is erasable and will also be once again created automatically when you make use of some phone programs.

    You must check the presence of any virus or malware in your pc. Download some good antivirus programs.

    Hi there,

    This happens when a virus or threat attack your device.You can use an antivirus application which can be downloaded from the PLAY STORE.
    OR
    you can reset your device to FACTORY RESET which happens as follows:
    settings->privacy->factory reset.

    Hop it helps!!

    Regards!!!

    hi friend,

    if some folders exit the SD CARD directly then it may be possible that your mobile
    is affected by virus it happens mostly in the case of virus ....

    to fix the problem download an antivirus from the play store ...

    you can also download a new file manager from the play store
    and check whether this problem
    is fixed....

    best of luck.....

    Dear Friend,


    Relax and do not worry, you device is safe and there is not such issue. The folders which you can view some time exit automatically are folders which are created by Phone programs. One of which I know is “DCIM” under File Manager. As you take photo a folder name “Camera” is automatically created under “DCIM”. You can erase these folders but creation of such folders will take place automatically whenever the said actions is performed.

    Your mobile device comes with many pre installed applications and those application when on Function automatically creates folders in the External Memory card, Also some Applications when on update create many files and folders, Some Game applications do the same thing when you store the data after playing. There is no specific importance behind those files and even if you erase those files nothing will happen to the Device or the Applications installed.

    Don't panic. It is a common issue. The folders created by phone programs can exit automatically.
    Under file manager DCIM is such type of folder.
    After taking the photo "camera" named folder is created in DCIM.
    The folder can be removed.But when you again perform the task this will happen again.
    But don't worry. This is not an issue.

    - Under file manager DCIM is such type of folder.
    - The folders which you can view some time exit automatically are folders which are created by Phone programs.
    - You can also download a new file manager from the play store and check this issue.
