Hello Brainiacary,

Clearing the thumbnail cache to allow it to rebuild may resolve this for you.

Hope this helps,

I have found the information why it is so.
The album art images of audio files that are system and hidden are not deleted even if i delete the main file,so it is displayed in folder.I found out a way to solve the problem i manually disabled hidden system files on folder setting and deleted the audio file belongings.
