    Hello all. I use Shrink/Decrypter and I always delete the ISO image after I burn. I went to defrag and the defrag shows two ISO images that are the same size as the ISO images that I burned, but the filenames are different (e.g. 00016225.ISO). I searched my whole drive and I can't find these files so I can delete them. Does DVD Shrink leave a backup image behind? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I have only used Shrink a couple of times now. What I've noticed is that after using the iso image, it extracts the movie into a desinated folder. the movie that I backed up was without a paddle, so it created the movie into a folder called without a paddle. after Shrink encoded the files and burned the movie, it again save the files into another folder called without a paddle. so I believe that it continues to create and saves the files everytime you burn the movie.

    Yeah, thats not exactly the problem that I'm having. I can just go in and delete the image from my designated folder pretty easily, or I can just tick "delete ISO when finished burning" on DVD Decrypter. My problem is that I have a duplicate of that ISO somewhere else on my HD, under a different filename (00016225.ISO). If anyone out there can help me, all I want to do is find and delete these files. Does anyone know if there is a more thorough search engine for drives, rather than using the built-in Windows XP search? Please help me. :(
