That's one of the checks that the process does but it still moves the original file to the bin if you have undelete installed. It costs nothing and will be automatically removed after a period of time or sooner if disk space is running low.
Yes, it means that the media server isn't running. Most likely the box is half awake recording or ready to record. It would be better for the log to say that rather than connection refused however.Any ideas what is the cause of those connection refused errors in my log?
