Thanks for the link to use how to find files, THX
Thanks for the link I have not tried it yet but I noticed it was written when vista was SP1. and now I have SP2. I hope that window opens up when I hit F3. I'll let you know. But how do I tell if the files that are found are the TV shows i need to delete ? how do i tell the files apart, will then have a video extension at the end of the files I need to find?? since I need to find and delete 60 to 70 Gb's of data?? Thanks for any more input on these ?'s. thx for all the help
Sorry but this is basic Windows stuff.
You would see the file, right click for more details and to delete, click on it once then tap the delete key.
Sorry but this is basic stuff. I don't want to offend you but how did you get this far without the basics?
To BOB thanks for the bad reply. At least you could have
TO BOB, thanks for no good information reply to my ?'s. If you know so much where do i look for all the TV shows to delete so i can get my free space back.?? I have looked every where i could think of by opening up any files that had a video file, But then it say's its empty. I tried the F3 and it does not open up the window he said it would where I could search dates and then all those file will open would open up!! So where do i look on C:\ drive to get my free space back?? Thx for any and all answers??
You say you found the file to open up.
And in that same Explorer search we can find what folder it's in as well as delete the file.
I fear you may need so one on one PC training if the basics can't be conveyed here. That is, how to find the file, how to delete was covered. Yet you found the file but didn't delete them?
Don't worry. Folk are in need of basic windows skills all over. There are classes, books and more for when the short answers fail.
Itried you why to look foe files but on SP2 your pic's dont

Not sure on Vista
But after you delete them, then don't you have to empty the recycle bin?
Yes i have emptied the recycle bin since then!
Like I said I did not know what I was doing when I was deleting the TV shows. I was just deleting the link to open up to watch the shows. So since then I found out I needed then to open up the TV shows one at a time and then right click to open the settings and use the delete button for each show. So now I deleted the only way to get to the shows to do that on the MIDIA CENTER site.
So I need to know how and where do I look for all the files or folders for each TV show thats still on my C: harddrive

Plaese help me to find out why my computer is recording files or folders and where to look for them?? Thanks for all the help.
It was on a rarely used PC and the free space jumped after an update and 2 reboots.
A quick look seems to point at MSFT updates that cleaned themselves out after the boot.
Sorry but where Vista WMP records or stores files is YOUR CHOICE. Let's find a web link about that.
It looks to be in the first question and looks like Vista is the same.
