    I get a message that my disk is full--in fact I can't play tv because the
    disk is full. However, when I look for recorded tv shows only one is
    displayed. It appears as if they have all been deleted; however, they are
    still on the disk and have not been erased at the operating system level.
    What do I need to do to recover the shows I want to save and delete the
    others so that I can get the disk space that I need back.

    Thanks, in advance, for advice.

    Are you looking at the recorded tv listing inside Media Center? If so, try
    going to the Recorded TV Folder with Windows Explorer to see if they are
    still there.

  3. Search for files with the name *.dvr-ms - this should point you to the
    directory that contains the recorded tv shows. From there you can use
    Explorer to move or copy or delete them like any other file.
