I regularly transfer all photos from my iPhone to my Windows PC. However, I cannot delete subfolders of DCIM. So I'm getting a little collection of folders that I want to delete, but can't.
To be specific, I currently have zero photos on my camera roll, but this is what I'm seeing using File Explorer in Windows:
mtp://Kit's iPhone/Internal Storage/DCIM/807CIQGG mtp://Kit's iPhone/Internal Storage/DCIM/850RTGCV mtp://Kit's iPhone/Internal Storage/DCIM/879SQXPS mtp://Kit's iPhone/Internal Storage/DCIM/924ZUYVS mtp://Kit's iPhone/Internal Storage/DCIM/943YHDPL mtp://Kit's iPhone/Internal Storage/DCIM/980HHNVQ
But I cannot delete any of them. File explorer says:
807CIQGG could not be deleted. The device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected.
It hasn't stopped responding, and it hasn't been disconnected. I just can't delete these folders. I tried an alternative file explorer, Directory Opus. It says:
An error occurred deleting '924ZUYVS': Incorrect function. (1)
Is there any way to delete these rogue folders from the phone itself?
The same exact thing happens with my iPad. (Neither device is jailbroken.)
