By convention in Unix/Linux that begin with a dot a now shown (hidden). So since you can't see them its hard to delete them. The solution is to avoid graphical tools. 1. Connect the Android device to your computer with a USB cable. 2. Get into the adb shell. One way that works on Windows is: - Start the Windows command shell and enter:cd c:\Android_sdk\platform-tools adb shellWhere c:\Android_sdk is the location of your Android SDK. 3. Use Linux commands in the adb shellcd /mnt/sdcard ls -laUse "cd" to change to whatever director you want. Use the "a" option of ls to see dot files. 4. Delete your file/folderrm .my_dot_fileNow you know the name of the file you can delete it.
