Full Version: "Remove from library" won't permanently delete
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
When I try to remove a file from my XBMC library (under Movies or TV Shows) by going into the context menu and selecting "Remove from library" it first asks me if I want to remove, then if I want to permanently delete the actual file. I click yes to both but the moment I do a rescan it finds and re-ads the damn thing again!

Now I know I can delete the file from windows and then from xbmc, or go into the "files" section of the "Videos" tab, but I want it to work from inside the nice and shiny library. And yes, I have enabled "Allow file renaming and deletion".

Any ideas how to fix this?

If the above is true then it must be a permissions issue on your windows machine stopping them from being deleted

You know you can run clean library with update library at start up which will remove any items from your library that have been deleted on the source no need to do it manually in XBMC as well, if you decide on that option be warned XBMC will remove items from your library if it cant find them for example it cant see the share
