Properly removing what UpdateMedia did?
« on: February 16, 2008, 10:26:43 pm »
I mistakenly ran UpdateMedia in the command prompt and then it copied over all of the AV wizard videos into my "video" section. I am scared to delete them because it actually links back to where the setup videos are stored. I just want to remove them from the media viewer part where I go to watch recorded shows, etc. I looked around in Pluto and didnt find much help there that I could see.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks,
Blake

Just delete the symlinks and that will leave the original files where they are.
