    Help! I intalled a CDRW in my Compac PII to transfer my originol music from cassette to CD. Using Nero, great program, but I cannot find where the files were saved in order to delete and recover the memory it used (very large files, used up most of the memory). I saved them to My Documents, and deleted them from it, and checked in my hard drive, I can't find any trace of the files, yet my hard drive remains full. I emtied my temp files and defraged my hard drive, (after checking for errors) , still have a maxed out hard drive. What am I missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! TC

    Welcome to TSG

    You emptied the recycle bin – right?

    If you know the file extension Nero used for the image you can Start>Find>Files and Folders (C). Type *.xxx with xxx being the file extension in the find box.

    If you don’t remember the extension you can use something like this that will give a graphic display of the sizes of folders and sub folders – it should stick out like a sore thumb. I presume it has a trial period which should be long enough to find where Nero is storing the file. http://www.programfiles.com/Default.asp?LinkId=20373
