I download TV shows using bittorrent, but after I watch them and want to delete them from my download folder, they don't move to the recycle bin. It seems to be mostly mkv files that I can't delete. What can I do?

Is Windows telling you that they're being used by another program so cannot be deleted? Maybe on the off chance you're still running your torrent client which is seeding them?

In some cases it does, but I'll remove it from the torrent client, and try and I'll get what I get in the pic I posted. In that pic it doesn't tell me its being used by another program, it just does what I posted and does nothing, I could leave it like that for like half hour and nothing changes.

Ahh, a polite suggestion that you lose the pictures and description..

The forum rules pretty much make your thread a spanking offense..

Also, try deleting the folder/files from the command line.

I just tried that and nothing happens. It just sits at, deleting downloads at 0%.

Not sure about bittorent, but I always remove torrent files directly in my uTorrent with the right click on torrent and using "Remove and Delete .torrent + Data".

I can't do that anymore, because I have already removed it from the bittorrent client. Now I want to remove the media files from my downloads folder in Windows 8

Turn off the preview pane. I am tech support where I work and one guy has Windows 8 and called me every day for a week trying to delete things. turns out preview pane was holding onto a lock on the files that prevented deletion. I have never used it so I didn't think to check for it. I can't say for certain that it will fix your issue but it's a place to start.
