Try right-click on the book in Library view, and 'remove from library'.
Unfortunately everytime I try to right-click anything in ADE all I get is settings for adobe flash player. The only selectable options are (open item; delete item; item info) available after clicking little arrow in the top left hand corner of a thumbnail.
What I found surprising is that the first time I tried to download the file there was this 'progress bar window' and the whole process took around 30s.
Now when I try to download it again - after 'deleting' the file from ADE it takes 1-2 seconds...which seems to me that the file is still there :-( - hidden somewhere on the hard drive.
You must be on v1.7.2 still. Very sensible, I suggest you stay with it.
The file is still there on the hard drive.
If you look at the 'item info' (either using the selectable option you mentioned, or selecting a book and using ctrl-I) it will tell you where on the hard drive it lives.
All the books are likely to be in the savme directory, so if that book is deleted from ADE, check a different book instead.
Probably in 'My Digital Editions' directory under Documents; where Documents is will vary with different Windows versions.
That's right! I'm still on 22.214.171.1241 and using Windows 7 home premium 64-bit SP1.
I do appreciate you help but I'm afraid it won't work again ;-(
I've already done this! Everytime I 'install' a book in ADE it puts it in ADE's folder in My Documents (c:\Users\Admin\Documents\My Digital Editions\).
Every time I try to get rid of this faulty book I do 2 things:
- I remove the book directly from ADE (it disappeares from the bookshelf)
- I physically delete the file from ADE's folder in My Documents. As you correctly suggest deleting the file from ADE DOESN'T delete the file from the disk. That's why I do it manually.
Despite all theses efforts there must be some other location on my harddrive that the software stores the information!!!! And I am just trying to find this place ;-)
Let me provide you a workaround, check with that.
As I see that you are deleting the ebooks from the c:\Users\Admin\Documents\My Digital Editions, but ADE is still remembering that you have the ebook on your computer.
In this case, I assume that, there is a different file which keeps all the records for the ebooks, i.e. Manifest.xml file.
So, if you are able to re- download all the ebooks from library, please go ahead and delete the Manifest file from c:\Users\Admin\Documents\My Digital Editions.
Check if this works for you.
