Obvious newbie here. I ran a search by wording my issue a few different ways but wasn’t able to come up with anything. Pardon my ignorance but I would be very thankful if someone could help me out here. I’ll try to be as clear as possible when explaining my situation.
I have a WDTV Live Hub downstairs in the living room. I normally download movies to my personal laptop and then transfer them over the LAN during the day when I’m not using the Hub because it’s time consuming.
So here’s a general breakdown of what’s going on:
Before I transferred a group of files over today, I checked the Hub to see how much space was available and there was 21 gigs of storage space left on my Hub’s hard drive. At the time, I figured that was enough for my files so I copied the files and transferred them over the LAN. While the files were transferring, I did some work for an hour or so to give it time to transfer.
Later when I checked the Hub to see if the files were done transferring, there was a message that said there wasn’t enough storage space. I immediately remembered that I accidentally copied too many files to transfer over.
Ok so here’s the problem: I checked the amount of storage space available now, and it says I only have 250 mb of available storage. Well obviously that’s because “some” files got transferred over, but not all.
My problem is that when I look for those files I transferred over, they are not showing up anywhere. So I have files that are using up space on my hard drive, but I can’t locate them to delete them.
My question - how can I locate these hidden files? There must have been a partial transfer because there was 21 gigs of space available before the transfer and only 250 mb available after the transfer - but none of those files are showing on the Hub. I looked in “Videos” as well as in “Files”. I rebooted the Hub as well and same thing.
Hopefully I painted a clear picture of my scenario, and any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
