Files won't delete

Discussion in 'Windows Vista File Management' started by Mark Cunningham, Apr 8, 2010.

  1. I have a laptop running 32bit Vista Home Basic. Basically; I have a
    load of videos and files I want to delete as I have wached them and
    don't need or want them anymore. I highlight all the ones I want to
    delete; then hold Shift and Del to get rid of them. I get the usual
    mesage about are you sure you want to delete and I click yes. It then
    goes thorugh the process of deleting them and they disappear. I close
    the folder and go back a bit later to to watch something else and the
    files have come back. It is annoying as it is using my Hard Drive
    space. I am getting very impatient with it and am on verge of throwing
    laptop across my room in annoyance.

    Okay, try deleting them normally, by putting them into the Recycle Bin
    and empty it. If the files are too big and the Recycle Bin can't tak
    it, it will notify you before deleting them permanently.

    There are also many free apps available online that can delete file
    beyond recovery. You can use them. Google "delete files permanently"

    Your problem seems stupid. You are making some mistake probably. Pleas
