deleting in D drive

Recommended Posts

Can I take it that it's okay to delete certain things in my d drive. the reason I ask is that I decided to get rid of real player and after doing so, did start and find, and it listed a real player shortcut in the d drive.

That's a new one. I am sure it is always safe to delete a shortcut. As long as you have a registry backup, can't do any harm.

gunner, you mentioned a registry backup, what would the backup be for?

With real player gone from the c drive I don't really know why the shortcut is there. Could it have been pre-loaded and that's why it's in the d drive?

Sorry if this is a bit of a daft question :)

This isn't an expert answer, but I've had this happen. If you double-click on the icon you should get a message saying sonething like the file or program can not be found and then give you an option to search for the target or delete the shortcut. I've never had any problems after deleting the shortcut.

 

As to why it wasn't deleted when you removed the program, my guess is maybe it was a shortcut you created rather than one that was automatically created. I think (I definately don't know for sure) that shortcuts created by the user have a small diagonal arrow on the lower left-hand corner of the icon.

 

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the reply Mike, it does give me the option to delete. I was just curious as to why the shortcut was in my d drive when the prog. was in the c drive. :)
