View Full Version : I thought I deleted that?

08-09-2006, 02:51 AM
Well, I ran disk inventory to see what stuff was taking up room.. and decided to get rid of a few .mp4 movies that I ripped to put on my ipod. Well, I got rid of them... showed that my hard drive had more space available as well. Well, I ran disk inventory again.. and low and behold.. they're still there. I used spotlight and found them, double clicked.. and they play just as if it's running from the computer.

How can this be?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

By default, iTunes copies the movies and music it plays into its own library. If you only deleted the ones you have ripped, then the ones in the iTunes library may still exist. Check within iTunes to make sure.

or do a spotlight search and see if it is actually the same file you deleted or is the one in itunes

did you delete them from itunes? You can delete the file from the itunes library and still keep it on your hard drive, try deleting something and it asks if you would like to move it to the trash. maybe you didn't do that.
