when trying to delete unwanted pictures from my pictures folder the program
recopies the files in the same folder and it just keeps increasing in size,
deleted items are reappearing like a cancer.

Are you holding Ctrl when you delete? If you move, even a small amount the files will
copy. Try selecting with Ctrl, right-click, click delete.
