How to delete files that are not there

Explorer shows large files in a BBC iPlayer but if I click on them Explorer says they do not exist.. BBC iPlayer FAQ tells me to change location and reinstall but they do not solve the problem. Any ideas?

Are they actual files, or are they simply Shortcuts to files? If the latter you should be able to remove simply by right-click and choosing Delete.

Hi - they are the large files themselves. Right click will not let me delete "This file is no longer in this location"

Hmm, normally a right-click on the file may show the location of the file, or a right-click followed by a look at Properties to find the location.

Right click shows destination'.........\Documents\My Videos\BBC iPlayer\repository\b01m1l2l' but there is not such folder I can find.

Found this possible solution on after a quick search maybe worth a try.
