    I purchased the Nexus 7 32Gig and so far everything is just dandy. I do have one quirk that I am trying to work out. Background: I copied numerous documents, excel, powerpoint, program files. I did this so that I could almost used the tablet as my desktop PC on the go, using an OTG cable. The quirk is that when I go to gallery using the app pre installed I see tons of pictures from either the power points, or button jpgs from the program files. It looks like it scans the tablet and pulls up anything with a picture type extension and puts them in albums. At this time I don't actually have any personal photos on it so theoretically this app/folder/pointer should be empty? I do have the ability to delete jpgs et all from the gallery but I am concerned that it will delete them from the folder of the powerpoints, docs, and program files. Is there a way to point the gallery app to a designated folder? Or any other ideas on how to fix this?

    Can you use a file name called .Docs will that also be skipped. Does it have to be a filename with a . in front
