    Default Help!! Anybody know Roxio Photosuite well?

    I transferred pics from the camera that I want to delete. Before I transferred them, I selected "delete after transfer", but they are still there if I search for them under "view and organize". They were saved to My Pictures, which I was able to delete. I searched thru My Computer to see if I could delete from the hard drive and can't seem to find them - keep arriving at My Pictures. If I delete them out of "view and organize" it says they will still remain on the hard drive. WTF???? Anybody know what I need to do???

    Dispose of the somewhat embarrassing evidence, I'm guessing?

    "Delete after Transfer" only removes them from the camera. Most of those library programs have their own directory structure and methods of organizing. Delete them from the "View and Organize" window and that should be it.

    Of course!! What else could it be?!? (Not embarassing, but evidence nonetheless)

    Anyway - tried deleting from the view and organize window. It said it will be removed from the folder, but will remain on the hard drive. I want to find where on the hard drive and delete.

    You can do a search for the name of the file, and you should be able to delete it manually that way.

    The real problem that you'll have is that deleting a file doesn't really delete it. All it does is mark the space as being available on the drive, if that makes sense. The icon will be gone, but the data will still be there. Some people will say that you can truly delete a file by formating the drive, but that's very messy. I've been able to recover files off of a formatted drive in the past. The only way to really delete a file is to over-write it several times. Most drive partitioning software gives you the option of writing 1s and 0s to the drive, filling it up with garbage.

    Keep in mind, however, that the Feds can still recover such data. If they can do it, anyone that's determined can.

    What kind of evidence are you trying to cover up?

    Do you have pics of Dale Jr. and a non-significant other?
    Basically, like MikeL said, if someone really wants to track something down, they can do it.
    Just go for it!

    Precisely - it's me and Dale Jr at the Chicago race - hence his win

    Actually, just pics that I need to keep from snooping spouse (sorry, not kinky sex pics!!). He would not be pleased. Nothing the Feds need to be involved in, unless he does see them. In that case, they'll be investigating my homicide.

    Ok, so I'm searching thru where? My Computer? On the C drive? I'm only semi computer literate. (This could actually require a phone call to walk me thru. We'll see if it must come to that. ) Gotta spell it out to me. Thanks guys!! I'll buy ya a drink in Vegas.

    On the C drive.

    Not skin pics, eh? That only leaves the other thing that people can't resist taking digital photos of. I'd not want them seen either.

    If not skin - I'm not sure what the other thing is you're referring to. Sounds like I wouldn't want it seen either.

    The pics are of a male friend (fully clothed) known to have had previous (before my marriage) relationship with me that hubby is way jealous of. Truly harmless. Not Dale Junior, either. Not as riskaaaaay as y'all wanna think. I'm an angel

    Ok - searching C drive for pictures...

    Ok - searched C drive and found over 3800 photos and/or pictures. None were the ones I want to delete. Now what??

    Search by the name the camera would have given it. You can figure that out based on the names of other photos in your collection. My camera names things like P1000553.JPG. Most are somewhat similar.

    I had not searched with .JPG, but it did find all my pics from My Pictures, except those (maybe cuz I deleted from My Pictures?)

    Searched for all with 8 2005 - no luck. Can I somehow glean the path that Roxio is saving them to? Do you think I can unistall Roxio and delete them that way? I don't think Roxio is where they are saved. It's gotta be the hard drive. Argh - this blows.

    Searched thru the entire C and F drives. Nothing. I'm baffled. Best get a good night's sleep and try again tomorrow night. Thanks for your help MikeL.

    Ok, MikeL and Brew - I'm ready for another shot at this, if y'all have any other suggestions. If not, guess I'll be unistalling Roxio!!

    Why would uninstalling it help you find a file?

    My thinking is because the only place I see the pics are in Roxio when I'm in the view and organize. I searched C & F (external hard drive) and found every photo but those. I used the names shown in Roxio for the search. Nothin. If anything, I've got all my other pics saved on C and don't care if what's in Roxio is deleted. But the evidence has got to go.
