Sony xperia st26i version 4.0.4 When opening Album then

Customer Question

Sony xperia st26i version 4.0.4 When opening Album then touching the arrow down 3 horizontal bar icon top right of screen brings up all albums which are split below as camera albums which consist of all pictures and all videos I have taken/kept.
However below that is the heading Internal Memory and here there are no less than 6233 items all at 30th September 2014 in batches with anything from one item to 1600 or more. None of these items are actual pictures but a black background with a vertical white triangle with another white shape which seems to almost fit against one side of it. When I look at details for several of them they are all dated 30th September and all seem to be timed closely together around 04 47 am. It says saved to internal memory and then a file path consisting of almost 3 lines of narrative. Written alongside the black and white icons are words such as assets, drawable ( by far the most common) and even webkit/skin/raw This has happened before and I laboriously deleted the lot but it seems to me on the last day of the month something happens and they all reappear again within a short span of time - any ideas !!!

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I suspect that those puzzling files with odd icons are actually Temp or temporary files.

Are these files on your computer, or are they on your Xperia phone/camera ?

They are on my sony experia st26i phone only.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 3 years ago.
That still sounds like temporary files.

Go to
Settings - Storage
and look at the tri-colored bar for Storage. The center color of the bar (light blue?) should show the amount of temporary files. How large is it?

Also, is the Available memory abundant, or very little?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Its purple and 8 mm long with very narrow green section before and narrow orange section after. Available memory 81.45 mb

There should be some label saying (below the bar, perhaps) how large the middle section or middle bar (the purple one) is. Please let me know how that is (though it doesn't sound good, frankly.)
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Below the internal storage bar (green/purple/orange). All 3 take up only about 20% of the bar. It says total space 2.01GB

Below that it shows apps (green) 23.22MB

Then pictures/videos (purple) 371MB

Then audio (orange) 14.74MB


Presumably the high pictures/video number is ***** of all these strange files?

Expert:  Russell H. replied 3 years ago.
Something is missing from that accounting, what with the amount of file space used not being equal to what is left over when you subtract the 'free space' from the total space.

I have searched and found no method of deleting temporary files on this camera type, so I will have to give up on that idea.

As for the amount of space acknowledged as used by video... that's normal enough.
