Let me explain how folders in F-Stop work. First, F-Stop never deletes the actual folder. When you delete a folder it will only delete items in the folder and not actual folder. The reason for this is consistency, as if you have any file in the folder which is not shown by F-Stop (PDF for example), F-Stop won’t delete that file, and consequently it can’t delete the folder. So, it doesn’t delete folder even when it is empty, to have same behavior. That’s why you can’t delete created folder. We may however change this, so that when folder is empty, it will get deleted.

As for those those ** folders. In “Folders view” F-Stop shows only folders with images. So, when you create a new folder it will be empty, and F-Stop would not show it. So, it makes an exception to the rule here and it will show those folders as first items but ads ** characters so that it is visible these folders are newly created and empty. When you restart F-Stop, these folders will not be visible any more. It’s by design. When you try to copy files, this folder should still be visible and you can select it, so you can actually move/copy files to it.
