Duplicate photos / Thumbnails showing *STILL A PROBLEM*

I have the problem of the ALBUM and the PHOTO viewers all showing duplicate copies of photos I have taken. 2 or 3 copies of one photo, some really bad quality. Im sure its because its treating the Thumbnails as actual photos, and then its making thumbnails of the thumbnails, which get worse each time. Its even creating photos of the first frame of Video files.

 

I have tried "clearing data" in different Apps, and also tried going into the phone and deleting the 100s of thumbnails by hand. These all work, for a short time, until the phone creates the duplicates again.

 

Can someone please help, its a real nightmare!!

Re: Duplicate photos / Thumbnails showing *STILL A PROBLEM*

A software repair should fix it. When I first bought the phone I just inserted an old SD card that has been used on a different old Xperia T running on JB. My wild guess is that smth on the card triggered this. I did format clean the SD card, did the repair software and gone it is.

 

Here is how to do the software repair:

I know how frustrating is.

Album photo duplication

Whenever i screenshot an image or take apicture with the camera it saves to the Album which you'd expect, but it seems to duplicate them up to 10 times invarious forms (mostly of an unfocused image) i must have saved around 20-30 images but my album is full of duplicates.

 

Not just that but it automatically saves images i am sent via WhatsApp, and also seems to save any image file within a downloaded app, for example, i have PokerStars app on my phone and it has save hundres of images of poker chips and the PokerStars logo. Has anyone else had this problem? Or can anyone help with turning these auto saves off? Thanks
