mysterious 'android' folder in device memory that cant be deleted

hi... i have a bb q5 and been using it since 2-3 months now... there is an 'android' folder that appears in the 'misc' folder of the device memory. i cant get rid of this from the bb file explorer as well as from the laptop. when i try to del it, it say permission denied. i guess it started when one of my friends used my sd card in their android based phones. this folder contains all those folders that are there in the device memory like photos, camera, music etc. and some other folders like dcim, notifications. sometimes it shows 11 items inside and sometimes 12 or 13. i dont know if it's a bug or something but it seems quite irritating as it contains nothing space wise. i cant del it from my laptop bcos when i press del, nothing really happens and its still there... so pls can anyone help get rid of this...

Re: mysterious 'android' folder in device memory that cant be deleted

It's my understanding that folder is there for access by the Android runtime software.

Leave it.
