I have two files in Videos Library. Both files are over 4.0GB in size. I cannot delete them. Whenever I try to delete, the dialogue box with discovering items shows up and keeps showing the same until I cancel. It also makes laptop slow even after cancellation. I tried cmd->dir. One file is listed in dir but the other is not. I have some other files of similar size. they are fine. Moreover the file which is not coming up by cmd->dir is not also showing in Documents->My Videos.

  • Are you sure you're not looking in the Videos library? Also try running chkdsk /f on your drive. – Karan Jun 20 '13 at 21:23
