Mate has sent me this, I do not understand, is there anybody that sees the problem.?

"My problem is that having downloaded pics to the USB stick I can no longer remove them from the computer - when I go to delete the computer makes another copy!"

Is he pressing the delete key or right mousing on the file?? Sounds like a computer prob not a USB prob. Or user error / prob

Do you think it might be malware.?

Scan it for malware. Looks like programs (there's one called second copy) can copy files instead of deleting them. Did he install any programs recently?? If he did, what programs?

His massage.

Yes, done it several times!
Spent sometime downloading the copies of copies on to another USB plug - and deleting them
off the computer: worked some of the time, but still getting copies!
