Default Deleted photos reappear after reboot or a few hours

Just got my new Z2 a few days ago. Love the phone but a few quirks though. The main one - photos reappear after they have been deleted after a reboot or after waiting a few hours.

Steps to reproduce.
1. Take a picture with the stock camera app
2a. Delete it immediately from the camera app and also delete it from the trash within the Google Photos app.
2b. or go into the Sony album app and delete it from there.
3. Reboot the phone
4. Open the Sony album app. Voila... the picture is back again.

Can someone verify this behavior for me? Any suggestions?

ive found that with .55 and .402 firmwares there is a media scanning issue/app function issue

i dont think there is much to do besides deleting the pic using xplore, xplore app adds to the media info hence it should disapear from the album all together

Thanks!! I'm using Solid Explorer and will definitely try deleting from a file explorer. Funny thing is that if I delete the reappeared photo via eg. the Sony album app (so deleting it for the second time) it does go away permanently.

Do you reckon this is going to be solved via a firmware update? Or do I need to go hobby around the issue myself?

Found it. I had set the storage location to my SD within the camera app. Changed that back and the issue of reappearing pictures is gone. That all my widgets and live wallpaper were destroyed in the process got me even more paranoid about this firmware, but hey that's solvable too

Thanks for the help.
