    I downloaded 2 TIFF files, each over 200MB. I want to delete them, but I can't see them in the file directory. I only see them when looking at the directory inside a TIFF viewer app. And, the app doesn't allow anything but selecting a file to view. Is there a way to adjust settings to see these TIFF files, so that I can delete them?

    Thx

    Hi and Welcome to AC!

    Have you tried plugging your phone into a PC and deleting them that way?

    Not yet. That would have to wait until I am home later today. Was looking for an app that would show the files in an explorer-like window in which I could select and delete the files. Hopefully laptop will see the files later...

    Thanks for taking the time to register!

    Which file explorers have you tried?

    I've already deleted them, but I tried close to 8 or 9 from the play store. None of them saw the files. I could only see them by using a file converter app. But, for unknown reasons, the app crashed whenever trying to convert the files.

    Well glad you got it squared away.

    Oh my bad, I misinterpreted your reply. I subscribed to this thread so let us know if you get them deleted on PC.

    No luck. I can't see the TIFF files, even on the laptop...but they are there...I see them as an option to select on a file converting app.

    Hmm, I did a quick search and it seems they can be tough to get rid of even on a PC.

    Let me ask some others.

    Are they on internal storage or micro SD (if you have that option).

    Edit: never mind, forgot you could only view them.
