    Keep getting this error:

    system limited and some files can’t be deleted

    I rebooted and reset my phone to factory settings and still have this issue.

    It doesn't allow me to take pictures or delete/view any pictures that I get texted or messaged.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? When does this error message appear? Is the phone rooted?

    It's for a Blu Vivo 5 phone. It is not rooted. I have refreshed and rebooted several times. Not sure if it is some app that is causing the issue.

    Also, the error appears when I try to delete any picture from the gallery. The issue also preventing the phone from downloading any pictures sent through WhatsApp or messenger.

    Are the photos saved to Internal Storage or an SD card? Or are they saved to the cloud somewhere?

    I have all of the photos saved to the SD card.

    The SD card could be corrupt, defective, or counterfeit. Install SD Insight to see if the card is genuine or counterfeit. Counterfeit cards are programmed to report more storage than they actually have, and if you try saving more than the card can actually hold, then files can start getting corrupt.

    If it's a valid card, then go to Settings>Storage, Unmount the card, remove it, and insert it into your computer. Can the computer read these files? Backup as much as you can right now, then run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-sd-card.html.
