    After deleting a movie i had on my hard drive i noticed it left behind files that have no data/format of any sort, only a file name. When i try apple+d and dragging them to the trash it does nothing at all. Any suggestions? (here is a screenshot of the problem http://i.imgur.com/yFszT.png)

    Where are the files located? You cannot delete from the search box but if you open containing folder you might be able to delete it.

    There is no path to them, when highlighted no path appears at the bottom of finder window like it normally does. When I right click and do open enclosing folder nothing happens. :/
