Seems like a screw up in adding a folder that defeats the purpose of the hiding albums frature.
The RECENT album doesn't show up on the list of albums you can hide and the recent album shows any recent photos in your hidden albums. You also can't move stuff out of it. Worse deleting stuff from recent deletes it from the original folder as well. Apparently no one thought this addition through at corporate.

Go into Gallery settings and turn off "select albums to show".

The "Recent" album is not actually an album.  It is your most recent additions.  It is not it's own folder, just a collection link. The files don't exist here but are linked to their original location.  Hance deleting them will removed them from where they actually are.  As Oxford pointed out, going into Gallery Settings, and turning off "Select albums to show" will remove the Recent "folder".  Apparently no one thought through how many people would not understand what "Recent" means.
