Image won't go away


I got the following problem.
When i want to copy a dvd i told to put the image in e:\image.nrg
I also checked the option to delete the image after burning was done.

The burn didn’t succeed and i lost like 4 gig on my e:
But i can’t find the image.nrg???

Is it hidding from me because it’s scared to get deleted, or what?? :wink:

What do i have to do to get the space back on my drive??

hmm i just burned a dvd with succes and i lost again 4 gb of space.

I’m using nero

Please someone help me with this problem, i don’t like loosing so much space :frowning:

Two things you can do. First, go to your temp drive(usually C: ) in a dos prompt and type “dir /a” to see all hidden files. See if the hidden temp image is listed there. If it is you can then just do a del filename and it’ll get rid of it.

If you don’t see it, it’s possible that the file is orphaned. In that case depending on what OS you’re using you’ll have to run scandisk or chkdsk /f to get the lost space back. Good luck!

Ok i found out what went wrong.

I installed Norton 2004 a couple of days ago and didn’t noticed it changed my recycle bin into some superb hidding machine :stuck_out_tongue:

I emptied it and all my space is back :smiley:

Wowee ! An 8 Gbyte Recycle bin!
Whatever next?!
