    A ripped DVD is not only illegal, but also 3 gigs, minimum.

    Ohh, I see.
    There may be file fragments left over from deleting 75% through. You should have completed it, then deleted the file.
    First go to Find Files, go under the Date tab, and set everything up so it will list all files created on the day you did the DVD rip.

    If the video is in lost file fragments, you can run a scan disk, convert them to files, and then delete.
