    stupid question about the gallery

    Hey,

    I was wondering if anyone knew why the gallery might be duplicating folders?
    I have noticed this for sometime now but I have never been able to figure out why.

    I have a few folders that show up twice in the gallery. If I delete one file, the file disappears from both folders in the gallery. Has anyone else experienced this? And if so, how do I prevent it from happening.

    I've had it happen, and it seems to be related to when I've moved or renamed folders. What I've done is move everything into a hidden folder (starts with a .), then I just clear the data and cache from the market, delete all files, etc, then I move everything back and reboot.

    I think clearing thumbnails is essential, and suspect that is where the problem lies...

    I was reading another forum and somebody had mentioned a similar procedure, but not in as much detail.

    I think you are right though about the moving of files creating this issue. I think the first time I noticed was right after I moved a bunch of stuff.

    When you say deleted files, what files were you referring to just out of curiosity?

    Is this considered to be a bug?

    Thank your again

    If you put all the pics in a hidden folder, and they sill show in the gallery, just delete them from the gallery, because they aren't really there. Basically, just purge whatever data the gallery has, and start again...
