    Hi guys, im using decrypt to rip and burn my dvds, the problem that im getting is when i have finished doing a disk and i erase the iso file off my HD, the icon dissapears but my HD is still showing that the space that it took up on my HD is not available. eg before i decrypt a film, i have say 12 gb space, after decrypt, i have 7.5 gb of space, if i put another film on the space is reduced to 3 gb. after i erase them from my HD, the space available should return to 12 gb, but for some reason i only have the 3 gb left to play with. anyone who can solve this problem will be forever in my heart. thanx in advance.

    When you delete a file it goes to your recycle bin. Just empty your bin and it should free up space on your hd, hopefully =)

    Do you have Norton System Works? If so, you need to delete the protected files also.
