Got these files, but have no idea what they are. I know they are not harmful, but what are these files linked to? Ignore the R.jpeg, as I downloaded that and regarding the sound files; how can I delete them permanently, as I tried deleting them before, but they came back?

Delete them the same way in your files. And also delete from your files recycle bin. You'll find recycle bin in the 3 dots. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, the audio files are still there, even after deleting from recycle bin then restarting 😶. What to do...

That's really weird, are they just audio files of music that you installed on your phone. They shouldn't be coming back once deleted. 🤔 Are they ring tones from an app that's possibly installed. If there ring tones maybe there in the ring tone file. Maybe have a look and delete them from there. If not I have no idea.

Done. I did it via Sound settings, notification sounds, then deleted them there one by one. Now, they are gone for good! 😎

Hopefully someone on here will know how to wipe them for good. 🤞

Once you deleted them from your sound settings Did you then delete from your files and recycle bin after. If not try it and see if that clears them for good.
