    Hey guys,

    Ive made a program to copy file names from a music directory on my hdd, it reports the list for one folder as:

    Code:
    ...
    8-*****.mp3
    9-*****.mp3
    AlbumArtSmall.jpg
    AlbumArt_{1AAF94B2-FD35-4AA0-BE57-CCEF18997332}_Large.jpg
    AlbumArt_{1AAF94B2-FD35-4AA0-BE57-CCEF18997332}_Small.jpg
    desktop.ini
    
    Now i cant see any of those last 3 files in the said folder, ive searched for them and there not hidden or anything however when i right click on the folder and go to customize it shows the picture/album art in the preview thing.

    How can i delete these files, there is quite alot of them in alot of directories that i need to delete and i cant find any of them in *.jpg or *.ini :confused:

    Thanks

    They are there, and they are hidden... I guess Windows takes it upon itself to stop you seeing them because it's a customised folder for whatever reason. I'd just nuke them from the shell personally.
