OK so I downloaded around 10 episodes of this show from youtube onto a folder. then i added that to my itunes library from there. now ive seen all of them so i first deleted the 10 songs from my folder. but then when i checked my itunes library and resynced my ipod, the videos were still on my ipod. so i deleted the videos from my itunes library now. However, I dont think they are actually deleted from my computer as it was almost instantaneous when I right clicked and selected Delete and they all deleted (Its was way too fast). Any ideas/help? Oh and I have Revo Uninstaller. Don't know if that helps or not.

Generally speaking...deleted files on a volume of any sort (containing a recycle bin account) are not erased until the Recycle Bin is dumped. Then that space is reclaimed as free by the drive/volume.

Sooo...deleting anything from your system...only moves it into limbo (unless the file is too large for the Recycle Bin) and it is removed when the Recycle Bin (desktop) is emptied.
