    LR not deleting photos from hard disk


      I've been going mad trying to figure out why Lightroom won't delete pictures from my hard disk when I tell it to. I select the photos, delete, tell pop-up box that I want photos removed from both the catalog and the hard disk.  The photos are removed from the catalog, but they are still on hard drive.  Access rights on folders are all set to full.  I tried running LR as an administrator.  No joy.


      I'm wondering if I'm misunderstanding how the process works.  I normally download my pictures from the sd card/camera through Windows, not LR, then import into LR from the folder on my hard drive if I want to work on them.  Is the problem that I'm experiencing with deleting due to the fact that I'm not importing the photos directly into LR from the sd card?  I've deleted pictures directly from my hard drive in the past, and then LR can't find them, so I didn't think that was the issue, but at this point I'm grasping at straws.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
