Question
Dear Dan
I have recently lost some of my phone files. How can a hacker enter my mobile to delete the specific files he may have chosen?

Sincerely yours
Mehrdad Shamsara

Answer
Hello Mehrdad,
Thanks for asking this question.

Security is not my expert area, but I will answer as much as I can.
First, I feel sorry that this happened to you.
This would be one scenario.
Have you ever been in WebEx conference?  You display and share the screen with others, and they can see your presentation.  With this mode, you can also give control of your pc to the other person, and the other person can act and look the file just like you can see all in your PC.
We normally do not allow other person to gain all control of your PC.
Each pc has it's own address, and the other person can theoretically access to your pc.

I am not sure how external person from outside was able to gain full access (with your PC address) to your PC, though.

I hope this at lease explains somewhat in your situation.
Thanks.
