Windows 7: Deleted Files Still Showing Up On Shared Devices

Deleted Files Still Showing Up On Shared Devices

After several days and nights of searching and coming up empty, here is my dilemma. I have been sharing Video files with several devices in my home(XBox360, PS3, Tablets etc.), and it works great. However I have noticed that all of the deleted files are still showing on the shared device. For example the tv show Alphas, I downloaded a couple of episodes to check it out, watched the first one and was not impressed and deleted both files off of the hard drive. But when I connect any device to watch something its still there. How do I get rid of those types of "ghost files" completely? Sorry in advance if I put this in the wrong area.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Try removing the files from C>Users>UserName>MyVideo's, rather than trying to delete them from the video Library.

Are the files still executable or do you only have a shortcut to their previous location.
