Re: Unknown folder baidu is created on starting phone each time

The fix is available in the form of an update to myXperia app.

It may take some time to be available for your device and country. I have received it on my Xperia ZR (India) and can confirm that it fixes the baidu folder issue.

 

You need to update the app, and delete the folder once. It will not be created again.

Heads up guys, i just updated the myxperia into its latest version and when i deleted the baidu folder and had a phone restart and looking back on the file location. Surprisingly, the baidu folder didn't back again. I hope that I can really get rid of that folder again.

Re: Unknown folder baidu is created on starting phone each time

As Shahzeb says, we are currently rolling out an update for my Xperia which will not include this folder. The availability of the update depends on country and operator so depending on where you bought the phone it may not be available for your phone yet. To see if an update is available, open the Update Centre application to search for updates.
Note that the update will not remove the Baidu folder automatically as we don't want to interfere with other applications that may be using it. You can select to remove the Baidu folder manually at your own risk and then restart the device to verify that the new implementation does not add it again.
