    Here is my problem :
    I had transfered through TotalCommander a few videos (about 5 Gigs).
    I did not sync them through iTunes, so they were only playable in safari with the apache server running.
    I then deleted those vids one by one using the "delete" button on MobileFinder.
    NOW the vids are gone of course BUT deleting them did not free any space on the iPod. The 5 gigs are still marked as used : On the iPod preferences (...General /About) the free space available count did not increase 5 gigs !! In iTunes it's still displayed as part of the orange space (called : 'other')

    Is there a trash i should empty ?
    What can I do ? I feel i've been robbed. Please help me get my 5 gigs back (not the videos, the space)

    Thx

    There's a trash, under /var/root/Library/MobileFinder/Trash. You can remove that with TotalCommander, with the MobileFinder, or by logging in with SSH and using rm.
