My deleted folder is empty and I still have different sizes listed between the Humax screen and the webif. The Humax shows 21GB more space than the webif.Do you have undelete running? If so deleted recordings are moved to the nominated recycle bin and then cleared out a week later.
Opened the file editor and checked my video folder, it seems to contain previous recording info, the information files that are created when a recording is made?. the .hmt/.thm/.nts ones, not the actual .TS
Thanks once again for the info!There isn't a temporary file, the file is streamed e.g. played but not stored anywhere. You can stop this happening by removing the association on your laptop to TS files, e.g. your laptop is asked to 'get' a TS file and associates the TS file to a media player, if the association is removed, your laptop will really 'get' the file and store it in a folder on the laptop
...but the information within them might be used to calculate the space requirements rather than the actual physical space used?Yes these 'sidecar' files hold things like thumbnail pictures, bookmarks etc. they shouldn't really be left behind but they are always very small and won't be the reason for big differencies in folder size
