  1. I hope this is the right place to ask this so here goes.

    I recently had finally got my new PC together, and files from my old one moved over so now i am exclusively on my new one. Now I want to put some folders and files on dvds instead of my external HD, But I was wondering if there is a way after I have moved the folders and files to the dvds to delete the files in the folders but still keep the folders without having to manually go to each folder and delete the files?

    You can`t delete individual files and folders off a DVD/CD.
    You either erase the whole disc or nothing.

    You're speaking about deleting the files on your hard drive, but keeping the folders, correct?

    If so, you probably could do a *.* search in your OS for the folders in question, and then delete all the files. This is pretty easy to do in Windows XP and earlier, bit more of a pain in Vista and 7.
