Question on deleting files from folder or Wireshare
I am ignorant when it comes to computers and such, so pardon me if this is a stupid question.

I am currently downloading a bunch of files, but I want to delete some of them. If I delete a file from the Incomplete folder section of Wireshare, but not from the actual Wireshare program download tray, does the file also delete from the WIreshare program download tray as well? Or do I have to delete it from both ways for it to be gone? Or do I just have to delete it from the WIreshare download tray for it to be gone from both?

Reason I ask is because in the Incomplete folder I can view some of the files that have yet to have any % downloaded in the Wireshare download tray, but I can't tell which files those are if I look for them just in the Wireshare download tray.

So I would prefer to be able to delete the files from the Incomplete folder, which then would delete from the Wireshare program download tray as well. If thats possible of course.

In WireShare, any incomplete downloading file you 'Cancel' will then automatically delete the file in the incomplete folder.

If you simply delete the file from the incomplete folder first without cancelling the download then the incomplete file will be re-built again from zero either during the session or when you begin the next session.

I would always advise checking incomplete downloads directly via the incomplete folder rather than using the WS built-in player abilities which would then create a 'Preview' file similar size as the incomplete file on disk.

If you have lots of presently downloading files it can sometimes be difficult to find the file in question in the download window unless you can arrange it in a way easiest to find be it via name or date, etc. Using the Find file on Disk option helps greatly. You can also arrange downloads via date added or time remaining or other means to help find the file you wish to preview or delete. If you wish to preview, disable WireShare's option to use the built-in media player & that will also stop 'Preview' files from being created.
