There's this mp3 file that keeps appearing in my music folder everytime. I've tried deleting it but it just reappears in my music folder. 

Does anyone know what file this is and how do I permanently get rid of it?

File name: au_uu_SzH34yR2.mp3

Do you have your music files backed up some where like a cloud account.
It is likely being reinstalled from a back up account

The only backup I have is on Samsung Cloud but sure that it's backed up there. The file itself just appeared from nowhere and keeps coming after every time that I delete it.

Ok try this Go to Settings, Apps, Samsung Music, Storage, Cache and delete the Cache and reboot your device.

If this doesn't help you likely have to suspend your cloud syncronization which I think is reinstalling the file but am drawing a blank at the moment on how to do this😂

Ok, I'll clear the Cache for Samsung Music.

Ok I think I remembered how to stop this happening

Settings, Accounts and backup, Manage accounts, and at the bottom of the list auto sync data - toggle off and see if this helps not being reinstalled

Hi, try to delete in my files.
Open your phone's Files app >> Tap on the music file >>Tap Delete And then Delete.
If you don't see the Delete icon, tap More on the 3 dots And then Delete.

I've tried that. I've deleted it from the Samsung music app and my files app but always reappears in my music folder in my files.

The source app is Pinterest.

 

Yesterday is the day when I discovered this .mp3 file for the first time and it turned out to be from Pinterest (You can see the source app icon in Samsung File).

I have cleared Pinterest app data. Let's see if it comes back or not.
