    when I delete a big folder, it's not deleted, but moved in "system data" instead, I remove the card, I plug it in my pc and my pc says that the device has to be checked for errors, it runs the check and then creates a folder named found.000, if I delete this, the free space is regained! I've already formatted my sd card, same issue happened!

    I've got a similar 1gb of data in internal too but this should be the mi cloud backup?
    is it stored locally?
    how can I delete it?
    (I'm root)

    I noticed the same thing happens when I delete a large file from the internal storage,
    is this a nougat feature or a miui one?
    any way I can force android to delete these files instantly instead of moving them to system data
    and maybe deleting after reboot?

    I formatted it to exfat and I think it does the job (instant delete), finally!
