Clarification Request
My understanding...

It seems data in HDD is cached in Samsung LED TV and it is not releasing as such.

" (the
renaming doesn't work as the TV gives an ID to the device itself (not
based on name)). I could even see sub-folders that I had deleted. But I
did find a solution (simple) that worked for me. I simply went up to the
menu and navigated from Video to Pictures and could immediately see the
folders I had deleted were no longer there. I then navigated back to
Video and hey presto it had refreshed. It worked for me anyway so I can
see and watch all the new films I had put on the HDD. Hope this helps
someone else. "
