Cannot see or access files on NAS

  Peter Lanky 07 Mar 13

Last week I updated the firmware on my QNAP TS-210 NAS running the latest version of Twonky Media Server. After doing so, I found that as well as my existing music, I also had 5 'samples', which were stored in a folder called 'samples' in QMultimedia. Not wanting these samples, I deleted the folder, but they are still present somewhere on the NAS.

If I check the details on Linn Kinsky software, I am given the path: ( being my NAS) Yet no amount of searching can find these files, and I don't understand the path. Similarly I have received 2 x 5 second samples from some place called, and like the other samples, I can't locate them to delete them. The path in this case is: If I copy the paths above into my browser, the sample plays in a Quick Time window, but I can't locate the source.

I can see the files in Windows Media Player, but can't delete them. I cannot see them in any Windows search, in any web browser, or in Mp3Tag. I cannot find them if I open a DOS Window, and look for them there.

is this any good, In Windows Media Player I can rightclick on a song and the bottom option is 'Open File Location' this opens Windows Explorer and the folder where the song is.

It only gives me that option for files on my PC, but not for those on the NAS.
