    **first post, be nice!**

    I have run 'Disk Inventory X' which has found 6Gb of movie files in my home folder that I had deleted a while back, I cannot delete the files from within the App(it tries but fails), nor can I see them from finder.I have used Onyx to try to reveal them using the 'show hidden files' option, and now am at a loss at what to try next...I'm guessing there'll be a Terminal way of trashing the files but I'm not comfortable with using code :-(

    any suggestions appreciated.

    Strictly speaking, Terminal != code. It's just a command-line environment.

    In any case, where are the files located exactly?

    they're in 'user/documents/azureus downloads', and if it makes a difference I found them using WhatSize? not Disk Inventory X

    cheers

    Just delete the folder (contents will go also). Azureus will re-make the download folder on next download.
