    I have emails that appear when I do a search.. When I try to open I get a message that it cannot be opened because it does not exist or is being used in another application.
    When I check properties file size show 0.. How can I remove these. When I go into explorer they do not appear in any directory... It's almost like its just a header
    Thanks

    Using Windows live mail.
    The items do not appear in the explorer directory but do appear if you do a search.
    Cannot be opened because they don't exists... byte size is 0.... yet I cannot remove the email headers

    What is the full path of these HITS that is found by saerch?

    They may be links to the deleted files that are in the "Recents" folders!
