won't delete
I have 2 torrent files in my download folder that I can't delete. I get this
message:
Could not find this item

This is no longer located in C:\Users\Walt\Downloads. Verify the items
location and try again.

I've seen this in a previous post and it was said give it a day or two and
it will disappear. Well it's been there a week now is there anyway to delete
this file. I even tried in safe mode with no luck.

Re: won't delete
It may be the way you have your torrent program setup. Is it on when you
boot? If it is, and people are actively downloading from you (being a seed)
you may not be able to delete the file as it is in use.
